After a motor vehicle accident, you are entitled to claim accident benefits from your insurance company. Even if you are at fault for the accident, you can still make an application for accident benefits. Our firm will explain the various benefits available to you or your loved one and assist you in applying for all of the benefits that you are entitled to from the appropriate insurer.
If you have been injured, you may be entitled to certain statutory accident benefits. These benefits are from your own insurance coverage (or other available coverage) and are separate from the compensation you would receive from a successful tort claim.
Benefits available through accident benefits can include the following:
- Income replacement benefits
- Non-earner benefits
- Caregiver benefits
- Housekeeping benefits
- Medical benefits
- Rehabilitation benefits
- Attendant care benefits
It is important to speak to an injury lawyer to understand which of these benefits are available to you. Even if an insurance company offers you some compensation, you should still obtain independent legal advice to ensure you are treated fairly.
