Motor Vehicle / Car Accident: Two Sources of Compensation

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident or in car accident you may be entitled to receive compensation and/or assistance from two sources.  First, you may be entitled to make an accident benefits claim, typically through your own car insurance company.  Your accident benefits insurance can provide coverage for benefits such as: income replacement benefits, medical and rehabilitation benefits, housekeeping and home maintenance, and more depending on your policy.  Your entitlement to benefits is not dependent upon whether you are at fault for the accident.

In addition to any benefits you may be entitled to from your accident benefits insurance, you may also be entitled to compensation from the driver and owner of any other vehicle involved in the accident, assuming you are not at fault.  The at fault party is responsible for paying for your income loss over and above what you receive from your accident benefits insurance, any medical rehabilitation costs also not covered by your insurance, pain and suffering and your out of pocket expenses.  As well, your family members may be entitled to compensation from the at fault party for any losses they have suffered related to the accident.  Typically, they receive compensation for a loss of care, guidance and companionship of the injured party.
