What To Do If You Have Been in A Car Accident
The first and most important thing to do following an accident is to seek medical attention. Even if you feel fine, getting checked out is important, as some injuries may not be immediately apparent. In addition, medical records from your check-up can help support your claim.
If it is safe to do so, it may be very helpful to take photos and videos of the accident scene, and gather the contact information of any witnesses present at the time of the incident. If police have been involved, a police report will also be helpful to your claim. However, if your injuries prevent you from gathering evidence while at the scene of the accident, our legal team may be able to gather evidence through access to records, camera footage, and more.
Inform your insurance company about the accident as soon as possible, to ensure you meet the deadlines for claiming benefits. However, be mindful and exercise caution when speaking with the at-fault party's insurers - make sure you do not accept a settlement offer without fully understanding what may be possible in your case. Our team of Red Deer motor vehicle accident lawyers may be able to provide guidance on this.
Section B Benefits
In Alberta, all valid vehicle insurance policies include no-fault Section B benefits
. If you were injured in a car accident, you are entitled to compensation regardless of who was at fault. Coverage goes up to $50,000 per person and can be used to pay for medical treatments as well as expenses related to disability or death.
To qualify, claimants must notify insurers within 30 days after the accident. If it has been over 30 days, contact us
for help accessing benefits. Under the statute of limitations for motor vehicle accidents, you have two years following the collision to file a personal injury claim.
While Section B benefits can greatly aid in car accident survivors' recovery, it can be a difficult benefit to acquire. To learn more, check out our Section B benefits
