If you were injured in a car crash, you may have already noticed medical bills and other necessary expenses starting to accumulate. Depending on the severity of the injuries you have sustained and the impact they have had on your ability to return to normal life, your process of recovery could be long, difficult, and costly.
That said, all standard automobile insurance policies throughout the province have provisions for Section B benefits. And since all motor vehicle operators are required to carry mandatory insurance, if you were hurt in a car accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation for certain injury-related costs through your insurance provider.
The benefits available to you following an injurious motor vehicle collision could vary depending on the impact your accident-related injuries have had on your overall quality of life. For instance, if the injuries you sustained in a car crash make it impossible for you to return to work, you may be able to access income replacement payments. Weekly indemnity benefits provide injured car crash survivors with up to $250 per week for up to two years following the collision. Additionally, if you are your household’s primary caretaker but your newly acquired injuries prevent you from completing essential housework, you may be able to receive $100 per week for a maximum of 52 weeks to employ a housekeeper.
Furthermore, when car accidents cause 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.
Section B benefits are designed to help injured survivors of car accidents afford necessary expenses stemming from the injuries they sustained in their collision. Eligible insurance policyholders who were injured in a crash may be able to access up to $50,000 for a maximum of four years following their collision to help offset the costs of injury-related expenses, including:
- 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
Section B benefits are also referred to as “no-fault accident benefits.” This is because all insured drivers who have been injured in a crash may be able to access Section B benefits, regardless of their level of culpability for causing the accident. Even if your own wrongful actions on the road or errors behind the wheel caused your collision to occur, if you were injured, you should be able to claim Section B benefits payments.
In spite of this fact, however, insurance companies often find reasons to deny policyholders’ claims for Section B benefits and withhold the payments they are due.
