What Additional Benefits after a Car Accident Am I Eligible For?

Are you wondering what additional benefits you may be eligible for, after a car accident?

If you and your family’s day-to-day life have been impacted after a car accident, consider filing a claim for accident benefits through your insurance company.

There are a number of unexpected costs associated with a car accident. Aside from having to replace or repair your vehicle, you may be unable to work during your recovery or at all, due to your injuries. If this is the case, you could be eligible for income-based benefits.

For instance, if you were working or self-employed at the time of the accident, you could be entitled to claim compensation for lost income under the income replacement benefit.

If you were a full-time student or unemployed during the time of the accident, you may be eligible for compensation under the non-earner benefit.

For more information on what additional benefits are available to assist with injury related costs, and the best ways to pursue those benefits seek advice from a personal injury lawyer.
