If you or a loved one has experienced a catastrophic injury due to someone else’s negligence, we understand the challenges you’re facing. Our dedicated team of legal professionals is here to provide you with the support, guidance, and expert representation you need to obtain justice and maximum compensation for your losses. With years of experience in handling catastrophic injury cases, we have developed a deep understanding of the physical, emotional, and financial toll these injuries can have on individuals and their families.

Understanding Catastrophic Injuries and Their Causes

Catastrophic injuries are those that have a severe and lasting impact on a person’s life. They encompass a range of debilitating conditions, including spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, amputations, severe burns, and more. These injuries are often caused by accidents such as car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and other traumatic incidents.

Catastrophic injuries bring about significant life changes for the victims. These injuries can cause excruciating pain, physical impairments, and emotional trauma. In addition, they often result in income loss due to the inability to continue working or pursue further job training. Many victims also face challenges in continuing their education or face difficulties in their studies.

Catastrophic Injuries in Motor Vehicle Accidents

In the context of motor vehicle accidents, catastrophic impairment is a specific designation and categorization of injuries and impairments according to the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS) in Ontario. This designation holds significant importance for victims of car accidents as it allows them access to a larger pool of accident benefits to aid in their recovery.

The SABS Criteria for catastrophic impairments outlines the specific requirements for this designation. Some of the criteria include:

  1. Paraplegia or quadriplegia
  2. Amputation of both arms or both legs
  3. Total loss of vision in both eyes
  4. Traumatic brain injury resulting in specific impairments
  5. And other impairments listed in the SABS

By obtaining a catastrophic impairment designation, victims of car accidents can access enhanced medical, rehabilitation, and attendant care benefits. For example, the medical, rehabilitation, and attendant care benefits increase from $65,000 to $1,000,000. This expanded coverage ensures that individuals with catastrophic injuries can receive the necessary care and treatment they require throughout their lives.

Due to the substantial increase in funding associated with a catastrophic impairment designation, insurance companies in Ontario often employ strategies to prevent victims from receiving this designation. At Haghani Law Office, we have extensive experience and expertise in navigating the obstacles insurers may impose. Our proven and effective strategies aim to ensure that our clients receive the catastrophic impairment designation they deserve, enabling them to access the necessary benefits and support.
