What Are Section B Benefits in Alberta?
Alberta requires every insurance company have a Section B clause in their automobile policy. These benefits are considered “no-fault” which means that regardless of who is at fault for the accident that caused your injuries – you may be eligible for specific types of benefits following your accident. If your accident occurred outside of Alberta – you may still be eligible for Section B Benefits. Contact our Edmonton personal injury lawyers for a free consultation if you have been injured and are in need of legal assistance with Section B Benefits.
Types of Benefits Covered Under Section B Benefits
There are strict timelines to adhere to when applying for Section B Benefits and for this reason we encourage you to seek counsel from a personal injury lawyer who is familiar with Section B Benefits. This is something we can help with and we will always make sure your best interests are our number one priority.
Depending on the nature of the circumstances you or a loved one may be eligible for some of the following under Section B Benefits regardless of who is at fault.
- Medical Benefits: Medical costs such as massage therapy, acupuncture, medication, physiotherapy, psychotherapy and are just some of the types of medical benefits you may be entitled to receive.
- Disability Benefits: There is a strict criterion of conditions you’ll need to meet in order to receive disability benefits. This one is typically harder to prove unless you are wholly and continue to be disabled to the extent that you are unable to do any of your regular job or duties.
- Death, Grief Counselling and Funeral Benefits: These types of benefits may also include things like funeral expenses in the event of a death that stemmed from the accident and there is a cap on what you can claim for funerals. Grief counselling may also be included in this if counselling is required following a death from the accident.
Forms for these benefits are typically provided by the insurer and in some cases if you are denied these benefits – a personal injury lawyer may be able to help you get compensation for other things like lost earnings, treatment costs and more if you qualify.
