After being injured in a car accident, you may experience persistent physical pain, develop disruptive mental health issues, and incur substantial financial losses. Car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. In a flash, your entire world could change, and the course of your life be altered forever.
When motor vehicle collisions cause automobile insurance policyholders to sustain injuries, regardless of which driver was responsible for causing the crash, the injured accident survivors may be able to access much-needed coverage in the form of accident benefits. Also referred to as “Section B benefits,” no-fault accident benefits should be available to all injured car crash survivors, no matter their level of culpability for causing the collision to occur.
Accident benefits are included in all standard automobile insurance plans throughout the province. They are intended to provide injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions with compensation for costs they have incurred as a result of sustaining injuries in an accident. Accident benefits can provide various forms of financial assistance, including:
- 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.
Additionally, injured car crash survivors may be able to access up to $50,000 in accident benefits payments for a maximum of 4 years after their collision. These payments may be made available to help injured accident survivors afford certain necessary, injury-related expenses. Oftentimes, these include:
- Medical treatments
- Rehabilitation costs
- Mobility aids, assistive medical equipment
- Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities
- Ambulance services
- Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
- Housekeeping services
- Psychological counselling
- And possibly more
