If you have been injured in a car accident, you will be entitled to Statutory Accident Benefits which cover medical treatment, therapy, and a minimum level of income replacement, regardless of who caused the accident. Additionally, if another party’s actions contributed to your injuries, you may be able to pursue a claim for compensation for pain and suffering, as well as lost income beyond what is covered by Statutory Accident Benefits.
If you were mostly at fault for the car accident, you will still be entitled to receive Statutory Accident Benefits. Additionally, you could be eligible for benefits from other sources such as workplace or private insurance policies. In situations where you are 99% responsible for the accident, but another party is just 1% responsible for your injuries, you may have the option to pursue a claim against them.
