It is very important to note that you have a maximum of three years from the date of the accident, the appearance of the damage or the death to ask for a compensation to the SAAQ.
A car accident is an important event that can disrupt, sometimes seriously, the lives of injured persons and their loved ones.
If you have been a victim of a car accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Here are the types of benefits offered by the public auto insurance plan.
- Income replacement indemnity
- Allowance for persons under study
- Allowance for childcare expenses
- Compensation for sequelae (aftereffects).
Depending on your needs, you could benefit from home-based personal help, physical and psychological therapies as well as assistance in adapting your home to your new reality. Of course, this list is not exhaustive.
It is therefore important to consult a lawyer to find out what your rights are.
In any case, a pre-existing condition does not prevent you from obtaining compensation for the injury suffered.
In the event of a dispute, the Tribunal entitled to hear your application is the Tribunal Administratif du Québec (TAQ).
