Accident Benefit Claims

Pollack Tsimerman

Accident Benefit Lawyers in Toronto

If you’ve been in a car accident, you’re eligible to receive accident benefits, or “no-fault benefits,” regardless of who is responsible.

Our team can help advance your accident benefit claim, while helping guide you and your family through the process so you can focus on your recovery.

To file a claim, you’ll need to notify your insurance company of the accident as soon as possible (if you don’t have insurance, notify the insurance company of the other vehicle(s) involved in the accident).

You’ll need to complete the accident benefit claim application forms (including a form substantiating your income loss completed by your employer, and another form substantiating your car accident injuries completed by an authorized health professional, like an occupational therapist, chiropractor, physiotherapist or physician.)

Medical and rehabilitation expenses covered by an accident benefit claim are limited to a maximum of $65,000.00.

When an injury is determined to be “catastrophic” in nature, medical and rehabilitation costs covered by an accident benefit claim are currently limited to a maximum of $1,000,000.00.

If you need to take time off work as a result of the accident, you can apply for an income replace benefit equal to 70% of your gross income, up to a maximum of $400.00 per week. This benefit is payable for two years after the accident if you continue to be significantly unable to perform the essential tasks of your job. The income replacement benefit will continue to be paid after two years if your suffering continues due to your car accident injuries, and you have a complete inability to engage in any employment for which you’re reasonably suited by education, training or experience.

If you were unemployed at the time of your accident and you suffer a complete inability to carry on a normal life, you may be entitled to a non-earner benefit of $185.00 per week for a maximum of two years.
