Shelburne Accident Benefits Lawyer


Even if your own errors behind the wheel of your car led to a collision with another vehicle, if you were injured in the crash, you should be entitled to financial support through the accident benefits included in your automobile insurance plan. All drivers in the province are required by law to carry mandatory insurance, and all standard local policies have provisions for no-fault accident benefits. Therefore, no matter which driver’s actions were responsible for causing the injurious collision, the injured survivors of motor vehicle accidents should be eligible to recover much-needed financial support.

It can be a physical, emotional, and financial challenge for injured car accident survivors to re-adjust to regular life after sustaining serious injuries. In Shelburne, many injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions incur substantial financial losses as a result of their accidents. Depending on the severity of their injuries and the impact they have on an accident survivor’s overall quality of life, seriously injured car crash victims could struggle to afford all of their necessary costs of care. Their access to accident benefits, therefore, is often a critical component of an injured car accident victim’s ability to remain financially stable while undergoing a lengthy period of recovery.

Also referred to as “Section B benefits,” accident benefits help injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions afford certain necessary costs arising from the injuries they acquired in their accident. For up to four years following the date of their injurious collisions, accident benefits can provide injured car crash survivors with up to $50,000 in compensation for various injury-related expenses. Oftentimes, these expenses 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
  • Psychological counselling
  • And possibly more

Depending on the impact the injuries sustained in a car crash have had on a car crash survivor’s life, accident benefits might offer different forms of financial support, 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.

Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, insurance providers often determine that injured benefits claimants do not meet the eligibility requirements to receive accident benefits. When insurance companies withhold payments from policyholders who should have the right to claim them, they can make life overwhelmingly difficult for seriously injured accident survivors.

That is why, if your claim for Section B benefits was turned down by your insurer, a free consultation with our accident benefits lawyers serving Shelburne may be beneficial to you. Our Shelburne accident benefits lawyers understand the tactics often used by insurance companies to deny the claims of eligible policyholders.
