What are accident benefits?
Accident benefits are payments made by an automobile insurance company to persons injured in an automobile accident. In Ontario, accident benefits can be claimed by any personal injury victim regardless of who is to blame for the accident (no-fault benefits).
The benefits you may be entitled to come in many forms and are sometimes known by different names. These can include:
- Attendant Care Benefits
- Caregiver Benefits
- Collateral Benefits
- Death and Funeral Benefits
- First Party Benefits
- Housekeeping and Home Maintenance Benefits
- Income Replacement Benefits (IRB)
- Lost Education Expenses Benefits
- Medical Benefits
- No-Fault Accident Benefits
- Non-Earner Benefits
- Optional Benefits
- Rehabilitation Benefits
To receive accident benefits from your insurance company you will be required to fill out numerous forms that are available on the Financial Services Commission of Ontario website. Please note that claims for certain accident benefits must be made within 7 days to your Accident Benefits insurance company.
