Show Notes

  • Pedestrians injured in a car accident: Pedestrians who have suffered severe injuries and cannot work due to a car accident are entitled to compensation. After an accident occurs, rehabilitation is often needed as well as at-home aid and care. Individuals should not be dissuaded from applying for long-term disability if they cannot work due to ongoing symptoms. It can be necessary to file both a disability and personal injury claim in some circumstances. Both accident benefits, such as income replacement, are accessible as well as disability benefits.
  • Deemed at fault in a car accident: It is a common misconception that at-fault drivers are not eligible for accident benefits. Drivers deemed responsible for causing a car accident that have sustained injuries can still pursue compensation in order to undergo treatment and rehabilitation.
  • Minor injuries and compensation: Individuals can still be eligible for compensation and benefits despite the supposed severity of their injuries. Doctors can provide a prognosis but cannot be certain if an injury will result in long-term symptoms. It is important to understand that the analysis for benefits after an accident can be complicated and require legal expertise.
