So, you’ve had a motor vehicle accident. You’ve exchanged contact and insurance information with the other driver at the scene of the accident, taken pictures of the damage, and spoken to any witnesses. You’ve noted anything important about the scene. The vehicles involved are driveable, and thankfully nobody needs an ambulance. You’ve called the police, but they’ve told you that they aren’t going to attend the scene, and you need to file a report. If the accident happened within the City of Edmonton, that used to mean going to a police station to file a report. Starting on September 29, 2022, that will no longer be the case.
Form AB-1 Notice of Loss and Proof of Claim
Form AB-1 needs to be completed by you and sent to your insurance company within 10 business days of the accident. If you can’t submit it within 10 days, you should do so as soon as possible. If you can’t fill it out yourself, you can have an authorized representative do it for you
Changes to Insurance Law in January of 2022
Last year, the government of Alberta made a few changes to the Insurance Act. One of these changes comes into effect on January 1, 2022. The change will allow for direct compensation for property damage claims, which includes coverage for your vehicle damage, any loss of use of the vehicle, as well as physical objects which are affected inside the vehicle. The new direct compensation law coming into effect has NO EFFECT ON PERSONAL OR COMPENSATION claims to any degree.
