Except for Newfoundland and Labrador, car insurance companies in Canada must provide accident benefits to everyone involved in a car accident, regardless of whether these are two-car collisions or single-vehicle accidents. No-fault statutory accident benefits (“SABS” or “accident benefits”) are built-in to all auto insurance policies. If you sustain injuries as a driver in a collision, you can file a SABS claim against your insurance company or the other driver if you don’t have an insurance policy. The same applies if you are a passenger, pedestrian or a relative of an injured person in an accident.
However, making a claim is not the same as getting compensation. While SABS is no-fault, insurers can still deny a claim on the grounds that the driver was driving without a license or that the driver is an excluded driver. The insurer may also deny claims for certain benefits for various reasons. Filing a SABS claim in Toronto also requires extensive documentation and, therefore, it is advisable to have a Diamond & Diamond lawyer handle the claim for you.

Get the Accident Benefits Claims You Deserve in Toronto
What benefits can accident victims claim for their injuries sustained in car accidents? Provinces in Canada have slightly different amounts specified in their SABS, but they all include the following:
- Income replacement
- Non-earner benefits
- Caregiver benefits
- Medical expenses
- Rehab expenses
- Attendant care
- Death benefit
- Funeral expenses
- Lost education expenses
- Visitor expenses
- Housekeeping and home maintenance
According to Ontario’s Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule, accident victims may receive one or more of these benefits based on the extent and nature of their injuries and their circumstances at the time of the car accident. While insurance companies will want to limit their payouts by denying as many claims as possible, an accident benefits lawyer can ensure that they get all the benefits to which they are entitled.

Diamond & Diamond Accident Liability Claims Lawyers
Sustaining injuries in a car accident is always traumatic and some people never recover from the physical and emotional harm. Accident benefits can help, but they are often insufficient to cover all your costs. Regardless of how long it takes, personal injury claims attempt to make motor vehicle accident victims whole again by getting the proper treatment, rehabilitation and compensation.
When circumstances require, Diamond & Diamond accident liability claims lawyers in Toronto also handle personal injury lawsuits. A free case evaluation can determine if your injuries qualify for more compensation.
Aside from car and motor vehicle accidents, our lawyers also handle personal injury cases across Canada involving:
- Slip and falls
- Brain injuries
- Work-related injuries
- Animal attacks and dog bites
- Birth injuries
- Wrongful death

Don’t Fall For These Most Common Accident Benefits Claims Lawyer Mistakes
Unfortunately, not all lawyers are as competent as the Diamond & Diamond Law lawyers.

This can lead to the denial of some statutory accident benefits coverage you should get.
Another common mistake with processing accident benefits claims in Ontario is not challenging the denial of claims by an insurance company, which the latter routinely does. An experienced lawyer can see right through these tactics and is ready with the relevant passages from the SABS in a rebuttal when disputing denied claims with the adjudicator.
