What are “no-fault” benefits?
Often referred to as “no-fault benefits”, Statutory Accident Benefits are the benefits available to you from your own insurance company, after you have been injured as a result of the use or operation of a motor vehicle, regardless of whether you were at fault for the accident.
Benefits that you may be entitled to include:
- Medical and Rehabilitation Benefits;
- Attendant Care Benefits;
- Income Replacement Benefits;
- Caregiver Benefits;
- Non-Earner Benefits;
- Visitor Expenses;
- Lost Educational Expenses; and
- Funeral or Death Benefits.
Those who may be entitled to accident benefits include those who have been injured as a result of the use or operation of a motor vehicle, meaning that pedestrians and cyclists may also be entitled to receive benefits.
It is beneficial to speak with a lawyer soon after a motor vehicle accident to ensure that you understand what you may be entitled to.
