Income replacement benefits to replace some of your lost income during recovery
Rehabilitation expenses for physical or occupational therapy, psychological counselling and other medically necessary treatment
Supplementary medical benefits for medications or assistive devices
Housekeeping and home maintenance assistance
Attendant care benefits or family caregiver benefits, if applicable
Non-earner benefits for injuries to those who were not employed at the time of the accident
Death benefits and funeral benefits should the accident result in the wrongful death of a loved one
