Sydney Accident Benefits Lawyer


Every driver in the province is required to carry mandatory insurance. This important coverage can provide essential financial relief in the event of an injury-causing collision. While no one anticipates ever being involved in a severe car accident, anyone who operates a motor vehicle could be seriously injured because of circumstances outside of their control. In the unfortunate event of a crash, accident survivors who sustain injuries should be able to rely on their insurance coverage to help them stay financially solvent during what is often a difficult recovery process.

Since all drivers are required by law to have automobile insurance, every motorist injured in a collision may be able to receive accident benefits. Accident benefits should be available, regardless of a driver’s level of culpability for their collision. That means that, even if a driver’s mistakes behind the wheel contributed to the circumstances leading to the collision, they should still be entitled to their no-fault accident benefits.

Also known as Section B benefits, accident benefits can provide injured survivors of car crashes with up to $50,000 for four years following their collision in order to pay for necessary expenses related to their injuries. Accident benefits may, therefore, provide coverage for:

  • 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 providing financial compensation for injury-related damages, depending on the circumstances of the collision and the severity of its outcome, standard insurance plans may provide additional forms of coverage, 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.

Insurance policyholders pay monthly premiums so that, in the event of an injury-causing accident, they can receive the benefits to which they are entitled. That said, insurance providers often deny injured policyholders’ claims for accident benefits. They may do so for a number of different reasons, most of which can be incomprehensible to those injured survivors of devastating car accidents who have sustained substantial financial losses as a result of their injuries.
