Section B is no-fault, which means that regardless of who is responsible for the accident, you are entitled to benefits for medical expenses and loss of income from your insurer.
Your insurance company is obligated to pay for medical, surgical, dental, chiropractic, ambulance, hospital and nursing services that are resulting from the accident. Your insurer is obligated to pay for these treatments during the four years following the accident, to a maximum of fifty thousand dollars. Learn more about Section B and medical expenses here.
Loss of Earnings benefits
If you are or were unable to perform the essential duties of your work because of the accident, you may be entitled to payment for loss of income for that period, provided that you were employed on the date of the accident, or worked for 6 of the 12 months prior to the accident, and are unable to perform the essential duties of your job for a minimum of 7 days within the first 30 days following the accident. The payment for loss of income will be 80% of your gross weekly income, minus certain other payments for loss of income from employment that are available to you. The maximum amount of weekly indemnity benefits is $250. Learn more about Section B and Loss of Earnings benefits here.
