Ottawa personal injury cases and award amounts.

Compensation for Chronic Pain Injury

I often have people call me and describe their Ottawa accident to me and what has happened to them as the result of an accident in Ontario.  They have many questions.  The two that I get asked the most are:

Do I have a case and how much is my case worth?

While every case is different, as all personal injuries and all individuals are different, there are often similarities that run throughout similar cases.

Accident Scenario:

We worked closely with “JM” to ensure she received maximum compensation for her injuries.  JM was a  58-year-old woman from Embrun, Ontario. One day, she was a passenger in a car driven by her husband.  As he went to turn left , they were hit by another vehicle.

Injuries Resulting From Accident:

JM suffered very serious personal injuries including chronic pain, anxiety and psychological difficulties as the result of the accident.

Compensation For Chronic Pain Injury:

After tough negotiations, we were able to get the insurance company to settle without  them having to go to court.  JM received $ 240,000 from the tort action and another $325,000 from her Ontario Accident Benefits Insurer. While this $565 000 will never erase the damage that has been done, it can help JM and her husband adjust to a new life with rehabilitation, benefits and support.  While we wish we could take back the accident for them, we are grateful to have met them and were able to change their lives in some for the better.  Moving forward, we wish them well…
