Statutory Accident Benefits
What Is The Ontario Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS)?
Legislated systems in Ontario seriously limit your ability to sue or recover damages for injuries sustained as a result of a motor vehicle accident. However, this system outlines a list of mandatory benefits.
Simply put, the system consists of the two following parts:
- A prescribed set of mandatory benefits ("Staturory Accident Benefits ") that insurers must pay to injured parties, including "at fault" drivers, passengers in vehicles, and injured pedestrians. See the chart below for more information.
- A set of conditions and criteria that must be met before you are entitled to receive compensation for specific physical and psychological injuries. This is known legally as a "tort claim ."
