Catastrophic injuries are injuries that result in long-term impairment. They impact the social, vocational, familial, cognitive, and emotional well-being of the victim and their loved ones. This degree of suffering entitles catastrophically impaired individuals to substantial benefits well beyond what’s covered by OHIP. A catastrophically impaired person may seek compensation for combined medical, rehab, and attendant care to a limit of $1 million. However, new regulations surrounding the definition of catastrophic impairment are making it more difficult than ever to receive this categorization without the professional expertise of a personal injury lawyer.
