Every car accident injury victim in Nova Scotia is entitled to certain insurance benefits regardless of who was at fault. These are called Section B benefits. These benefits can include medical treatment costs, loss of income, and housekeeping costs. After an accident, you or your injury lawyer should contact your insurance company as soon as possible to open a Section B claim. It is important to note that there are certain situations where you would open a Section B claim through another driver’s insurance policy, such as being in an accident as a pedestrian or passenger.
