Unlike Ontario, the changes in Nova Scotia are increasing the benefits available, reducing the types of injuries classed as minor, and giving claimants the right to sue for further compensation when they have a minor injury.
Auto insurance reforms announced today, Nov. 9, provide better coverage and more choice for Nova Scotians while striking the right balance between fairness, stability and affordability.
1. Enhance mandatory no-fault benefits including medical, rehabilitation, funeral, death and loss-of-income benefits for all drivers
Increased from $25,000 to $50,000
2. Give Nova Scotians a choice to buy an optional full-tort product for minor injuries, giving them the right pursue further compensation.
3. Increase unpaid housekeeper from $70/wk to $100/wk
