Do I qualify for the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS) if I was involved in a bus accident?

Anyone involved in a collision involving a bus or other motor vehicle in Ontario is eligible to receive SABS. However, the provincial government made changes to the Insurance Act designed to eliminate SABS for public transit riders who are injured if the accident does not involve a collision with an object or other vehicle. Section 268(1.1) of the Insurance Act prevents applications for SABS against either the transit authority’s insurance policy or a rider’s own vehicle insurance.
