If you were injured in a motor vehicle collision, you may be entitled to financial compensation through the accident benefits included in your insurance policy. All drivers in the province are required to carry automotive insurance, and all standard auto insurance plans include coverage for no-fault accident benefits, also known as Section B benefits.
For a maximum of four years from the date of your collision, you may be able to collect up to $50,000 in no-fault accident benefits to offset costs you have incurred as a result of your injuries. These costs often include:
- Medical treatments
- Rehabilitation costs
- Mobility aids, assistive medical equipment
- Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities
- Ambulance services
- Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
- Housekeeping services
- Psychological counselling
- And possibly more
On top of that, if you are your household’s primary caretaker and can no longer perform routine housework because of the injuries you sustained in your collision, you may be able to collect additional accident benefits. After sustaining injuries in a car crash, you may be able to receive $100 per week for up to 52 weeks so that you can retain the services of a housekeeper.
Additionally, if your injuries make it impossible for you to perform the duties of your job, you may be able to access income replacement payments in the form of weekly indemnity benefits, which provide injured accident survivors who cannot continue working with up to $250 per week for a maximum of 2 years following the collision date. Furthermore, in situations where motor vehicle collisions end 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.
No-fault accident benefits may be made available to you by your insurance provider regardless of your degree of culpability for the collision. That means that even if a mistake you made on the road ultimately caused your collision, if you were injured, you should still be able to access accident benefits from your insurer.
However, insurance companies often look for reasons to deny injured policyholders’ accident benefits claims and withhold the payments they are duly owed. If you were injured in a car crash and your claim for benefits was denied by your insurance provider, our accident benefits lawyers serving Truro may be able to help you recover the compensation to which you are entitled.
