- Eliminating tort deductibles for fatality claims
- Changing the calculation of tort income loss from 80% of net income to 70% of gross income
" an incident in which the use or operation of an automobile directly causes an impairment or directly causes damage to any prescription eyewear, denture, hearing aid, prosthesis or other medical or dental device".Under the SABS, a death benefit is payable if an insured person dies within either 6 months of the accident or 3 years of the accident as a result of being continuously disabled from that accident. If you examine the language of the Insurance Act, no deadline is mentioned for accident- related deaths in tort claims. How these claims will be handled remains to be seen...Could the elimination of the statutory deductible cause further confusion and further disputes?
