CAREGIVER BENEFITS :
The accident benefits insurer is required to pay a caregiver benefit if you were a primary caregiver for a person in need of care and did not receive any remuneration for engaging in caregiving activities. The caregiver benefit is $250 per week plus up to $50 for each additional person requiring care, provided you sustained a catastrophic impairment as a result of your accident
Under a standard auto insurance policy, this benefit is only available to people who have suffered a catastrophic impairment. This benefit is payable for two years following the auto accident, following which time, it is only payable if the caregiver suffers a complete inability to carry on a normal life, in which case it may be payable for the duration of an accident victim’s entire life
