Injuries and impairments following a car accident can have a severe impact on the injured individual, their family, and their friends. The injured person may not be able to work, provide care for children or dependents, or complete day to day tasks like cleaning their home or preparing meals.
After being involved in a car accident, you are likely entitled to compensation under Ontario’s system of no-fault Accident Benefits. These benefits are designed to help injured individuals recover from their injuries, regardless of who was at-fault for causing the accident.
Accident Benefits exist to cover various expenses resulting from a car accident. These include:
Medical and Rehabilitation Expenses: covers the cost of expenses such as physiotherapy, chiropractic treatment, occupational therapy and assistive devices.
Income Replacement Benefits: these benefits compensate an individual for lost income as a result of an inability to return to work following an accident.
Housekeeping and Home Maintenance Expenses: an injured person may be entitled to receive funds to cover the cost of housekeeping services, if they are unable to perform these tasks as a result of the accident.
Attendant Care: if an individual is severely injured and requires the assistance of a nurse or personal support worker, these costs may be covered by Accident Benefits.
Caregiving: an injured individual may be entitled to caregiving benefits if they were a primary caregiver prior to the accident, and as a result of their injuries, are no longer able to provide this care.
