What can you expect from a decision by the SAAQ?
Here are the different indemnities that the SAAQ can grant:
- Compensation for personal injury,
- Compensation for psychological injury,
- Income replacement benefits (IRB).
It can also cover other topics, such as:
- The right to receive in-home assistance,
- Your ability to perform a professional function,
- The reimbursement of a treatment (operation, rehabilitation, medication, etc…).
Being aware of the possible decisions that the SAAQ can make after a road accident is not enough: the decision must also be commensurate with the harm suffered. If you think that the Société d’Assurance Automobile du Québec has rendered decisions that are not appropriate for the consequences of the accident, then you are a victim and you must fight.
You can also understand how valuable a lawyer’s experience can be when building a file or contesting an unjust decision by the SAAQ.
