MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT
All individuals with Alberta insurance have the following coverage in the event of a death due to a motor vehicle accident.
- $10,000.00 cash for the head of the household or spouse
- $1,000.00 to $3,000.00 for each dependent child of the deceased depending on age of the child
- $5,000.00 (as of March 1st, 2007) is available towards funeral expenses
- Money is also available for grief
The benefits mentioned above come from your insurance company and application is made directly to them even if another insurance company has become involved.
This is a very simplified version and other benefits may be available to the family and your insurance company will be able to advise the family of these.
Your insurance provider will be able to determine exactly what the family can expect.
