Accident Benefits Claims


I have been involved in a car accident in Ontario. Am I entitled to income replacement benefits?

The governing regulation that applies is the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule. It stipulates what benefits can be received by victims whose injuries have significantly impaired their ability to work. These are commonly referred to as Income Replacement Benefits (IRB), and they assist a victim in receiving lost wages. To be entitled to IRBs, there are a few qualifiers that must be met.
