You are entitled to recover damages for the following:
Pain and Suffering and Loss of Enjoyment of Life
This is determined by the injury you suffered and the effect it has and will have on your life. The maximum award has been set by the Supreme Court of Canada at $326,000.00.
Loss of Income
Your past and future loss of income or loss of opportunity to earn an income is recoverable. You are entitled to immediate payments from your own insurer (Section B benefits) for a portion of your loss. We will assist you in recovering these payments.
Loss of Housekeeping Capacity
If you are unable to complete your normal house-keeping chores you are entitled to compensation; even if you have not paid for in-home assistance.
Cost of Care
In most cases your medical expenses are covered by your own insurer. Any medical expenses not covered by your insurer can be claimed against the at-fault party. This includes an award for future expenses. We have access to physical and occupational therapists, vocational rehabilitation experts and economists to obtain the reports and opinions to document and collect these costs.
