What happens to my claim if I wasn't wearing a seat belt?

In this province, if you get into a car accident that wasn’t your fault and you were NOT wearing your seat belt, any compensation you receive is automatically reduced by 25%. That’s a lot! You should be wearing your seat belt regardless, but some people find this little fact a motivating one.
