Common ailments include head injuries, broken bones, back and spinal injuries, torn ligaments and long term trauma. Being an accident victim, you should know your rights.
Understanding Personal Injury Law for Apt Compensation
Injury claims for motor vehicle accidents can be classified under two categories:
Sue for Pain & Suffering
To sue the other party for pain and suffering, your injuries must meet the ‘threshold’. The Insurance Act defines the exact threshold limit as well as the severity of the injury. This limit may be defined by injuries that cause:
Loss of Income
Accidents often involve temporary or permanent leave from work/livelihood. If you have lost your income due to a motor vehicle accident, you can sue for lost income. ‘Income Replacement Benefits’ can be availed under the no-fault SABS benefits coverage. CPP disability benefits or long-term disability benefits further affect your claim amount.
