New Waterford Accident Benefits Lawyer


If you were involved in a car crash and sustained injuries as a result, you may have noticed how quickly costs related to your injuries have begun accumulating. Just like nobody can anticipate being hurt in a collision, nobody can foresee just how expensive the recovery process can be.

That said, all drivers on the province’s roads and highways are required by law to carry mandatory automobile insurance, and all standard policies include provisions for accident benefits. Also known as Section B benefits, accident benefits can provide car crash survivors with up to $50,000 for a maximum of four years as compensation for certain expenses they have incurred as a result of the injuries they sustained in a motor vehicle collision. These costs often include:

  • Medical treatments
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Physiotherapy
  • Mobility aids, assistive medical equipment
  • Prescriptions
  • Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities
  • Ambulance services
  • Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Housekeeping services
  • Psychological counselling
  • And possibly more

In addition to these injury-related expenses, depending on the severity of the injuries sustained in a collision and their impact on a policyholder’s overall quality of life, insurance policies could provide additional coverage. Car crash survivors may be able to access: 

  • Weekly Indemnity Benefits: Income replacement payments of up to $250/week for 2 years issued to accident survivors who cannot work because of their injuries.
  • Housekeeping expenses: $100 per week for 52 weeks to retain the services of a housekeeper if the injured accident victim cannot maintain their residence as a result of their injuries.
  • Death Benefits: For accidents ending in fatalities, $2,500 in funeral expenses, $25,000 in death benefits for the head of household or their spouse, and $5,000 in death benefits for dependents.

Accident benefits can be made available to any injured insurance policyholder regardless of their level of culpability for the collision. That means, even if your errors or wrongful actions behind the wheel were responsible for causing the crash, you could still be eligible to receive accident benefits.

Unfortunately, for a number of different reasons, insurance companies find reasons to deny their policyholder’s claims for accident benefits and withhold the payments. to which they should be entitled.
