How do we put a dollar value on your injury? Here’s the scoop.
In Canada, the amount of money you can receive for pain and suffering is capped at just under $400,000, indexed to inflation. But if you are not at the cap because of the nature of your injuries, we research what judges have decided in cases like yours.
If there’s any doubt of who was at fault or a dispute about the circumstances under which the accident occurred, that is factored into the potential claim. For example, if we assess the likelihood of winning at 50-50, we might negotiate a settlement at half what previous cases received.
There are other forms of compensation, too, such as claims for loss of income, future medical costs, attendant care claims and Family Law Act claims.
