Accident Benefits, also called “no-fault” benefits, are provided to car accident victims regardless of who was at fault for the motor vehicle accident. Accident Benefits are payable by your own insurance company regardless of whether you were driving at the time of the accident.
If you are a passenger, pedestrian or cyclist and do not have your own auto insurance policy, you can file a claim under the policy of the vehicle owner or under the policy of the at-fault driver.
Accident Benefits claims are time-sensitive. You should seek assistance with your Accident Benefits claim as soon as possible after the accident as there are detailed application forms and obligations to complete. At Edwards Pollard LLP, we know that dealing with the insurance company, especially when injured, can be a challenging task. Understanding the language of your insurance policy can be confusing. Our lawyers will review your policy and answer your questions and ensure that you are receiving all of the benefits that you are entitled to.
