What type of compensation is available? What are Section B Benefits?
In Alberta, all vehicle insurance policies offer no-fault Section B Benefits
, regardless of who was at fault, provided that the driver of the car had valid Alberta insurance. Put simply, if you have been hit by another vehicle and you were injured, you are entitled to have a portion of your medical treatments paid for as well as expenses related to disability and death, if applicable. The ultimate limit of Section B coverage for medical treatment in Alberta is $50,000 per person and you must notify the Section B insurance company within 30 days of the accident to qualify. IMPORTANT: if 30 days have passed, we may still be able to help you access these benefits; call us now for more information.
The sooner you access Section B benefits, the sooner you get back on the road to better health. You can download Section B forms here
