Ontario Accident Benefits for Catastrophically Injured Car Accident Victims - Income Replacement Benefits and Non-Earner Benefits

Serious car accidents in Ontario often result in injured victims suffering catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries. As a result, auto accident victims may not be able to work or continue to carry out their normal daily activities. In such instances, injured victims may qualify to receive income replacement benefits or non-earner benefits from their auto insurance companies. While there are other accident benefits injured drivers may receive, such as medical and rehabilitation benefits, this article will address when victims may receive income replacement or non-earner benefits.

Non-earner benefits are for injured individuals who were not working at the time of the accidents and are unable to carry on the activities of their normal lives due to their injuries. This includes students who are at least 16 years old and were full-time students at the time of the auto accidents.

When Should You Call a Kingston, Ontario Injury Lawyer After a Car Accident?

When people are injured in car accidents in Kingston and other cities across Ontario, they often wonder if or when they should call an injury lawyer after the auto accident. Some accident victims may think about calling but feel that their injuries are not serious and decide not to call, while others accident victims take the "wait and see" approach. If their injuries become worse, then they will call a lawyer. Many times, victims decide not to call because they do not want to be bothered with lawyers and don't want to be involved in a legal process. However, it is probably best for car accident victims to call a car accident lawyer as soon as possible to ensure they receive the accident benefits they are entitled to. If they wait, they could hinder their own claims if they decide to file tort claims down the road. In addition, many injuries that do not seem to be serious at first may get worse as time goes on.
