If you are a victim of an Eastern Ontario motor vehicle accident and you are left unable to perform your work duties, you may need retraining or modified tasks in your job. Any time your livelihood is impacted by an accident, you should look to a personal injury lawyer for advice. The Ottawa personal injury lawyers at Brenda Hollingsworth’s office often get asked what compensation accident victims have when they cannot return to work.
After an Eastern Ontario personal injury where retraining is required, you may have funding under the Ottawa no-fault benefits. These benefits are also called SABS, ABs or Statutory Accident Benefits. Retraining can involve working with a vocational rehabilitation therapist, an occupational therapist and several other health care professionals.
When your career is jeopardized and results in a loss of income, you may also be able to claim the loss of income in a law suit against the at-fault driver, provided that you can provide adequate proof of the loss and job path. An experienced personal injury lawyer knows how to build the income loss portion of your case.
Kurt Stoodley and Brenda Hollingsworth talk about income loss and Ontario accident compensation when a victim needs retraining for work.
