The effects of an amputation injury following an accident, Ottawa Ontario lawyer specializing in amputations.
Ontario Amputation Lawyer David Hollingsworth . The amputation of any body part can be devastating and have an effect on the accident victim, as well as his or her family. Life may never be the same as it once was. Suddenly, you find yourself not being able to do the same things you once did and your bills may be accumulating. After an amputation injury, you are often times not able to return to work.
An amputation injury requires very specific support and compensation. In Ontario most amputation injuries are defined as catastrophic injuries and therefore have many forms of compensation available to them. If someone is hurt in a motor vehicle accident, there are accident benefits provided for them under the Statutory Accident Benefits system. Someone with an amputation injury is entitled, among other things, up to $1,000,000.00 for medical and rehabilitation treatment, $1,000,000.00 for attendant care, up to $100.00 for housekeeping and home maintenance, $400.00 /week for income replacement benefits, and compensation for pain and suffering, past and future income loss and even future medical treatment. This accident benefits compensation will be needed for the rest of your life over and above what you will receive under the Ontario Statutory Accident Benefits regime.
There are also the obvious expenses such as medical, rehabilitation, attendant care, occupational therapy, home modifications, and/or housekeeping and home maintenance that are usually required.
