Statutory Accident Benefits
What are “no-fault” benefits?
Statutory Accident Benefits, also known as “no-fault benefits”, are the benefits available to you from your own insurance company, after you have been injured as a result of the use or operation of a motor vehicle, regardless of whether you were at fault for the accident.
Those who may be entitled to accident benefits include those who have been injured as a result of the use or operation of a motor vehicle, meaning that pedestrians and cyclists may also be entitled to receive benefits.
Here are some of the benefits you may be entitled to:
- Medical and Rehabilitation Benefits;
- Attendant Care Benefits;
- Income Replacement Benefits;
- Caregiver Benefits;
- Non-Earner Benefits;
- Visitor Expenses;
- Lost Educational Expenses; and
- Funeral or Death Benefits.
It is beneficial to speak with a lawyer soon after a motor vehicle accident to ensure that you understand what you may be entitled to.

When you have a legal matter and need to hire a lawyer, you may be able to pay for these services on a contingency basis. That means you only pay legal fees if you receive money because your case wins or you get a negotiated settlement. Please see our Contingency Fee section for answers to frequently asked questions and see each lawyer’s individual biography for their maximum contingency fee rates.
Please contact a personal injury lawyer today for a free initial consultation by email or by phone at (519) 672-5666. In many cases, your legal fees are deferred until a settlement is reached. We welcome referrals from other lawyers.
