Car accidents can happen out of nowhere. While carrying out routine daily activities like commuting to work, driving to school, or running errands, unexpected collisions can cause unsuspecting motor vehicle occupants to sustain serious injuries.
Nobody expects to be involved in a car crash, let alone for the course of their entire lives to be changed because of injuries they sustained while performing normal, everyday activities. Sustaining injuries in an accident can be disruptive to one’s overall quality of life, physically challenging, emotionally isolating, and expensive.
That is why all standard automobile insurance policies in the province include provisions for Section B benefits. Since all motorists are legally required to carry mandatory automobile insurance, if they are injured in a collision, they should be able to recover some financial support through their insurance provider’s Section B benefits.
Also known as no-fault accident benefits, Section B benefits could be made available to any insurance policyholder who was hurt in a car accident, even if they were responsible for causing the collision to occur. Even if a driver violates traffic laws and, as a result of their misconduct, causes an injurious motor vehicle collision, if they are injured in the crash, they should be able to access Section B benefits.
Section B benefits provide much-needed assistance to injured car crash survivors enduring great physical, emotional, and financial challenges. Depending on the severity of the injuries sustained by injured policyholders and the impact they have on their ability to continue living normal lives, claimants may be able to access various forms of benefits coverage. This may include:
- 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.
Section B benefits can also compensate injured car crash survivors for expenses they have incurred because of the injuries they sustained in their collision. Injured insurance policyholders could be entitled to up to $50,000 in benefits payments for a maximum of four years following their accident to offset certain necessary, injury-related costs. These costs 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
