Catastrophic Injury Compensation Guide
Our personal injury lawyers specialize in Ontario Law and often have confusion about whether an accident victim qualifies for a Catastrophic Injury claim.
To help address your questions, we’ve created a free guide to provide accident victims, their loved ones, and their healthcare providers with a thorough overview of the criteria used to determine if they are catastrophically impaired.
Ontario’s legal criteria are quite complex, leading to a lot of uncertainty and confusion over whether a person is likely to qualify under Ontario law. In addition, insurance companies will not make the determination voluntarily in any but the clearest cases. As a result, we have found that many accident victims who should be considering an application for catastrophic benefits, and many healthcare providers who should be recommending it, fail to do so because they do not have a clear understanding of the types of injuries and impairments that will qualify.
If you are seriously injured, reading this guide is the first step you can take to avoid needless suffering when you, your loved one, or your patient needs ongoing treatment and care for their recovery that exceeds the non-catastrophic limits.
