Tracadie-Sheila Section B Benefit Lawyer


Car accidents can happen when you least expect them. No one expects to be involved in a collision, nor do they presume they will sustain serious, potentially debilitating injuries. Very few people save money or financially prepare for expensive calamities, and even fewer have a real understanding of just how expensive it can be to sustain severe injuries in a car crash.

The injured victims of motor vehicle collisions may be required to pay out-of-pocket costs for medical treatments, physical therapies, rehabilitative programs, and major adjustments to their lifestyle to accommodate their new physical realities. Furthermore, if the injuries sustained in a collision prevent injured car accident victims from performing the duties of their job, they may suffer financial losses related to lost wages or reduced future earning capabilities. An inability to continue earning a regular living combined with mounting injury-related bills can cause injured car crash survivors to experience legitimate financial worries and distress.

However, since all standard automobile insurance policies in the province include Section B benefits, the injured survivors of serious motor vehicle collisions may be eligible to recover some degree of financial relief. Designed to offset the costs of certain expenses incurred because of injuries sustained in a car accident, Section B benefits are often a crucial source of income for insurance policyholders living through very challenging experiences.

For up to four years following the date of the collision, Section B benefits can provide injured car accident survivors with up to $50,000 to cover certain injury-related expenses. These expenses often include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Ambulance bills
  • Medical equipment
  • Prescriptions
  • Mobility aids
  • Physiotherapy
  • 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, Section B benefits should be available to injured car crash survivors no matter their degree of fault. That means, even if certain errors you made or wrongful actions you engaged in behind the wheel were responsible for causing your collision, if you sustained injuries, you should be eligible to recover Section B benefits.
