Section B benefits can provide injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions with up to $50,000 in financial compensation for damages related to the injuries sustained in their car accidents. For up to four years following the date of their collision, people who have been injured in a car accident may be able to receive financial compensation for a variety of damages. Section B benefits commonly provide compensation for:
- 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
Since all motorists in the province are required by law to carry mandatory automobile insurance and all Standard Owners’ Policies include Section B benefits, this critical financial assistance may be made available to all insured drivers who were injured as the result of a collision. Also referred to as no-fault accident benefits, Section B benefits provide coverage to injured motorists even if their actions behind the wheel contributed to the events that caused the accident in the first place. No matter which driver was responsible for the collision, if they sustained injuries as a result of the accident and have the requisite insurance coverage, they should be able to collect Section B benefits to compensate them for certain expenses stemming from their injuries.
In addition to the injury-related expenses listed above, depending on the severity of the policyholder’s injuries and the effect they have on their quality of life, Section B benefits may also provide coverage for:
- Housekeeping expenses: If the injured party cannot perform regular housework because of their injuries and is their home’s primary caretaker, they could receive $100 per week for 52 weeks to retain the services of a housekeeper.
- Weekly Indemnity Benefits: If the injuries sustained in a car crash prevent the accident survivor from returning to work, they may receive income replacement payments of up to $250/week for 2 years.
- Death Benefits: If a car accident results in fatalities, families of the deceased may receive $2,500 for funeral expenses, $25,000 in death benefits for the head of household or their spouse, and $5,000 in death benefits for dependents.
Insurance plans include Section B benefits to provide their injured policyholders with a degree of financial stability during a challenging time in their lives. Sustaining injuries in a motor vehicle collision can be a physically taxing, emotionally disruptive, and expensive process. Section B benefits help accident survivors afford necessary services to ease their quality of life, regardless of their level of culpability for their injurious crash. However, for a number of reasons, insurance providers often find reasons to deny injured policyholder’s claims for Section B benefits.
