Section B benefits are designed to provide the injured survivors of car accidents with financial compensation for injury-related expenses. Included in all standard insurance policies throughout the province, these insurance benefits often provide much-needed financial support to people who desperately need it.
No one anticipates being injured in a car crash, nor do they realize just how expensive it can be to sustain serious injuries as a result. Section B benefits can be crucial sources of income for recently injured motor vehicle collisions survivors.
For up to four years following an injurious car accident, Section B benefits can provide a maximum of $50,000 in financial compensation for injury-related expenses incurred by the car crash survivors. These expenses often include:
- 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
Additionally, if the injured insurance policyholder was their household’s primary caretaker and can no longer perform routine housework because of the injuries they sustained in their collision, accident benefits may be available to them. For 52 weeks following their accident, injured car crash survivors may be able to receive $100 per week to retain the services of a housekeeper.
Furthermore, car accident survivors whose injuries prevent them from returning to work may be able to receive additional weekly indemnity benefits. These income replacement payments can provide injured accident survivors who cannot return to their workplaces with up to $250 per week for up to 2 years following their accident.
In the tragic instances when 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.
Also referred to as no-fault accident benefits, anyone who has been injured as the result of a motor vehicle collision may be able to claim this useful coverage, regardless of their level of culpability for the accident. That means, if you were injured in a vehicular collision, even if you were partially responsible for causing the accident, you still may be eligible for Section B benefits.
