What are Accident Benefits? by Patricia Santucci

In Ontario you are entitled to accident benefits through your own insurance company. These are also called no-fault benefits. These benefits flow to victims of car accidents, regardless of who is at fault for the accident. These benefits are provided for such things as medical and rehabilitation expenses and income replacement, among other things. Accident benefits are available to you without having to sue anyone. The benefits are defined by legislation, specifically by regulation, the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS) under Ontario’s Insurance Act.
