A government amendment to the Statutory Accidents Benefits Schedule (SABS) came into effect on February 1, 2014. The amendment, titled as OR 347/13, made three amendments to the previous version of the regulations. The overall effect of the changes was to make it more difficult for injured plaintiffs to receive compensation in certain circumstances.
No-Fault accident benefits apply to any person in Ontario who has been injured in an accident involving a motor vehicle, regardless of who is at fault for the accident. That includes drivers, passengers, pedestrians and cyclists. These benefits, by law, are part of every car insurance policy sold in Ontario. They are paid according to a set of rules called the “Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule”, that determines what benefits you can qualify for.
