Throughout the province, all insured drivers should have access to accident benefits if they are injured as the result of a crash. All motor vehicle operators are required by law to carry mandatory insurance, and all standard insurance policies throughout the province offer accident benefits coverage. 

No one anticipates just how expensive it can be to sustain even moderate injuries in a motor vehicle collision. Especially in cases where a person’s injuries prevent them from returning to the workplace, the financial losses incurred by injured car crash survivors is often substantial. The insurance coverage available to them may be a crucial source of financial support throughout a very challenging experience.

Unfortunately, many insurance providers find reasons to deny their injured policyholders’ claims for accident benefits. When this happens, injured car accident survivors may not know how to proceed in order to appeal and overturn their insurance company’s unfair determination.

Picking a fight with a large insurance company can sound like a complicated, time-consuming, expensive, and ultimately impossible challenge. This is why so many injured collision survivors whose accident benefits claims have been denied choose not to take legal action. 

However, if the benefits payments you deserve were unfairly withheld from you by your insurance provider, by working with our accident benefits lawyers serving Sydney Mines, you may be able to recover the compensation to which you are entitled. Our Sydney Mines accident benefits lawyers have experience standing up to the unfair tactics used by insurance companies to stop their injured policyholders from accessing the funds that should be rightfully available to them. 

Also known as Section B benefits, no-fault accident benefits can provide injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions with up to $50,000 for four years following their accident, regardless of which driver was responsible for the crash. Injured drivers should be entitled to recover accident benefits even if their own mistakes contributed to the circumstances that ultimately caused the collision. The accident benefits to which they should be entitled are designed to offset the costs of injury-related expenses, which often 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
  • Housekeeping services
  • Psychological counselling
  • Housekeeping services 
  • And possibly more

Furthermore, depending on the circumstances of the collision and its effects on an injured survivor’s life, insurance policies could provide additional 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.
