Ontario Accident Benefits Pain and Suffering Compensation. When it comes to pain and suffering in Ontario, there are some areas that are “grey areas”. Firstly, there is no doubt that you are in pain and that you are suffering. Getting compensation for this pain and suffering is sometimes another story. In Ontario, if you are injured in a motor vehicle accident you can sue the person(s) who caused the accident insurance company for general damages for pain and suffering.
The Ontario personal injury law surrounding pain and suffering is complicated. Firstly there is a statutory deductible of $30,000. What this means is that the first $30 000 you are awarded goes towards paying your deductible. That is why it is extremely important that you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you with your claim. They will ensure that you receive maximum compensation for pain and suffering and that at the end of the day, you will walk away with a significant amount of compensation once your deductible has been paid.
Ontario personal injury law also has a ” threshold” when it comes to pain and suffering. This threshold must be met in order to receive ANY compensation for pain and suffering. The Ontario Insurance Act states that a person is only entitled to general damages if they have sustained a serious and permanent disfigurement, or a serious and permanent impairment of an important physical, psychological or mental function. What is a permanent and serious impairment? Ontario courts have defined a permanent and serious impairment as an impairment that negatively affects a person’s daily living . This usually means that one struggles with daily life such as housekeeping, social interactions, work or educational activities. Qualifying for pain and suffering can be difficult to prove. Experienced personal injury lawyers can help you with this.

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth and Associates. Sadly, a man has died as a result of a car accident on Hwy. 174. east of Ottawa , close to Canaan Road just after 2 p.m. yesterday. Several rescue crews rushed to the Rockland accident scene to try to save the man’s life after his car lost control and rolled into a ditch somewhere between Cumberland and Rockland. The deceased was a 56-year-old man who was travelling with 3 dogs. When rescue crews arrived there was not much they could do as the driver had no vital signs when they arrived and sadly he was pronounced dead at the accident scene. My thoughts go out to his family and friends .
