Regardless of who is responsible for causing an automobile collision, drivers who have been injured in a crash may be able to recover financial compensation for their costs related to their injuries from their insurance providers. This is because it is mandatory for all owners and operators of motor vehicles in the province to carry automobile insurance.
Standard Owner’s Policies include no-fault accident benefits, also referred to as Section B benefits. Available to any driver injured in a motor vehicle collision, Section B benefits may provide essential support to help ease the financial burden of coping with newly acquired medical expenses. Even if a mistake you made behind the wheel was partially to blame for the accident in which you were involved, you may qualify for financial compensation through Section B benefits.
For up to four years after sustaining injuries in a collision, insured drivers may be able to recover up to $50,000 in compensation for damages arising from their injuries. Some examples of damages that may be covered by Section B benefits include:
- Medical expenses
- Ambulance bills
- Medical equipment
- Mobility aids
- Chiropractic sessions
- Massage therapy
- Strength-training exercise programs
- Psychological counselling
- Home modifications to accommodate acquired disabilities
- Mileage expenses for trips to and from medical appointments
- And possibly more
If the injuries sustained in a crash prevent accident victims from returning to work, Section B benefits may also provide income replacement payments, also referred to as Weekly Indemnity benefits. Weekly Indemnity benefits provide coverage for 80% of an injured car accident survivor’s lost earnings, up to a maximum of $250 per week for up to two years after the collision.
Section B benefits may also provide compensation for damages arising from wrongful deaths resulting from a collision. Section B benefits may provide up to $2,500 in funeral expenses to the deceased’s family. Death benefits may also be available for the head of the household or their spouse (up to $25,000), as well as their bereaved dependents (up to $5,000).
Car accident survivors often face a myriad of physical, psychological, and financial challenges because of injuries they have sustained. Section B benefits are often an essential source of income, helping injured Madawaska County drivers get their lives back on track after living through an extremely challenging event.
However, insurance providers occasionally deny claims for Section B benefits for a number of reasons. In fact, insurance companies may find reason to deny an eligible driver’s claim even if the injuries they acquired in a collision entitle them to receive benefits payments.
In these truly unfair circumstances, our Section B benefit lawyers serving Madawaska County may be able to provide beneficial legal advice and assistance. By working with our Madawaska County Section B benefits lawyers, injured drivers whose claims for benefits have been denied may be able to overturn their insurer’s unfair determination.
