Accident Benefits Claims
In your car insurance policy, the Accident Benefits section provides compensation if you, one of your passengers, or a pedestrian is injured in a car accident, regardless of who was at fault.
Accident Benefits are accessible through your own insurance company for any motor vehicle accident that you may be involved in. Accident Benefits may include access to income replacement benefits; non-earner benefit; medical and rehabilitation benefits; attendant care benefits; catastrophic impairment benefits; housekeeping benefits; funeral and death expenses, among other potential benefits to assist you immediately following an accident.
In Ontario, for example, Accident Benefits also include:
- Compensation for an alternative caregiver if you can no longer act as the main caregiver for your dependents
- Compensation for other expenses, like home maintenance, replacement of items damaged in the collision, and lost educational expenses
- Compensation if you’re completely unable to carry on a normal life and you don’t qualify for income replacement or the caregiver benefit.
If you sustained injuries from a motor vehicle car accident, you need to contact an experienced Personal Injury Lawyer immediately to discuss your case and the next steps that must be taken – especially when it comes to Accident Benefits claims.

Settlement of Accident Benefits Claims
Am I entitled to receive an Accident Benefits settlement?
An injured person who has an on-going dispute with an insurer is not entitled to a cash settlement. Even where the issues remain in dispute, an insurer who has been brought to the LAT for a disputed benefit, will only be ordered to pay any past benefits to date, and re-instate the benefit.
If you are interested in a cash settlement for your Accident Benefits claim, contact our experienced Personal Injury Lawyers today. Our Injury Lawyers have experience in Accident Benefits settlements. Our personal Injury Lawyers can assist you in obtaining a cash settlement of your Accident Benefits claim in certain circumstances.
License Appeal Tribunal (LAT) Dispute Lawyers
The LAT resolves accident benefits disputes where an insurer has denied payment of a benefit to an injured insured person. A denied benefit may include medical treatment, attendant care, catastrophic benefits, or even funeral costs.
Contact our Personal Injury Lawyers to discuss how we can assist you where your accident benefits claim is denied. Time is of the essence, as there is a limited amount of time to file a LAT dispute.
Contacting the right car accident injury lawyers is important because an experienced motor vehicle accident lawyer will be able to get you the compensation that you deserve.
Dealing with your loss of income due to time taken off work and potentially dealing with the stress of any long-term disabilities which may affect you post accident, is difficult enough.
It is important that you outline all of your symptoms to your medical physician, such as physical and psychological symptoms that may be affecting you. Sometimes a critical injury from a motor vehicle accident may not be apparent immediately after the accident. Oftentimes, a person will experience injuries such as brain injuries days or weeks following the car accident. Multiple medical appointments may be necessary in order to outline to your doctor all of your symptoms wholly.
Our car accident injury lawyers will help fill out your accident benefit claims, and deal with other factors with the insurance company that come with a car accident injury claim. We can assist with Medical Rehabilitation Benefits forms; Caregiver Benefits forms; Out-of-pocket expense forms; employer confirmation forms, and catastrophic impairment forms.
