· Vehicular Accidents
In the unfortunate incident of a motor vehicle accident, if one is injured, there are two main methods for the victim to file a case in court to help with recovery.
- Statutory Accident Benefits (SAB’s), which you are entitled to regardless of fault in case of an accident.
- Tort Claims, in which you sue the one who potentially caused the accident and or caused the injuries directly or indirectly.
1. Statutory Accident Benefits (SAB’s):
SAB’s, or “Statutory accident benefits” are commonly called the “No-Faults Benefits”. How they function is that it is provided from the insurance of the car(s) or other vehicle(s) that were involved in the accident by the insurance company and you are entitled to that benefit whether you were the driver or the passenger, regardless of you having a personal insurance in case of an injury. This is why its also called the no fault benefits. SAB’s provide benefits within limits, for the following:
- Caregiver Benefits / Income Replacement Advantages / Non-Earner Benefits
- Rehabilitation and Medical Benefits (for physiotherapy + miscellaneous treatments)
- Attendant Care Benefits – So that you can pay for an Attendant
- Housekeeping Benefits
- Death and Funeral expenses
- Travel and Relocation Expense
- Purchase of Damaged Clothing and Apparel
2. Tort Claim:
Tort claims are dependent upon there being someone who can be pointed to as the one who caused the accident. In other words, the existence of a “fault” in the incident (Unlike the no-fault benefits as discussed above). In a “Tort Claim”, you are seeking monetary compensation for the damages and/or injuries you were caused by the one at fault. Even if the responsibility falls on them by 1%, you are entitled to seek 1% of the compensation of your losses from them.
Although SAB’s are a guaranteed entitlement, its not a big cheque, and as such, may not cover all of the expenses required to be spent in the aftermath of the accident, Other factors such as a potential loss of income for years to come due to the injuries can make the tort claim of a rather large loss of money. So, the tort claim may help you cover the expenses that you may not have been able to cover otherwise. In case of the damage of family relations, depending on your situation, for example, your family was dependent on you for the paycheck that got them through the month, a tort claim may allow your family members to be compensated as well.
The Personal Injury Lawyers in Mississauga & Brampton of our network are highly experienced in these kinds of situations and are familiar with how to handle such claims and we would be more than happy to help you be in the guidance of these capable individuals in your times of hardship.
· Preventable death
Death is an inevitability that all of us face with our family or friends, and it is never something that ever becomes easy. But the pain of that loss is worse when that injury could have been prevented.
No price can be out on the heartbreak upon the loss of a loved one, but besides emotional damage, a monetary blow may also be suffered due to their demise if, for example, they were a source of income that your family depended on. Various expenditures like child care, funeral costs, child care, household bills, debt or if a large sum was spent on their medical bills, etc. Any combination of these can be overwhelming to deal with on top of the trauma of losing your loved one. In some cases, even in the case of life insurance to find some momentary comfort in, the future of the family becomes insecure. If another party is responsible to any degree, you can sue them to protect your family from the financial impact.
