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 Ontario Accident Lawyer , Ontario Accident Lawyers.. — A 5-vehicle accident blocked westbound lanes on Highway 174, snarling traffic during yesterday morning’s commute from the east end of Ottawa. Ottawa Police responded to the call just before 7:30 a.m. between Blair Road and the Queensway. The 2 far left lanes were blocked to traffic until 8:10 a.m. The string of rear-end Ottawa accidents caused minor damage to the vehicles. Ottawa Paramedics said one person was taken to an Ottawa hospital as a precaution but thankfully, no one suffered serious personal injury. I hope everyone involved in these Ottawa accidents are ok and their recovery is quick.
