Some injuries are considered catastrophic

When a person is injured in a motor vehicle accident, it is everyone's hope that he or she is able to fully recover. Unfortunately, this is not always the end result. There are times when a person passes away from injuries suffered in the accident. There are also times when a catastrophic injury occurs.

What does the brain experience during a concussion?

A concussion can happen in many different ways--in a fall, in a car accident, or while playing sports, for example. Symptoms can include dizziness, loss of memory, nausea, and headaches. If you're experiencing these symptoms in Ontario, you may be wondering what exactly happens to the brain when you get a concussion.

Head, back, and neck injuries can be fatal

If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, there is nothing more important than your health. This is why it is suggested to be medically examined, even if you don't feel that it is necessary. Many types of injuries can occur as the result of an accident, especially those that involve two vehicles moving at a high speed.

What is Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy?

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, which is commonly known as CTE, often makes the news as it relates to professional athletes, such as football players and hockey players. It can be caused by repeated concussions and blows to the head, which happen in contact sports. It should be noted that concussions are not a prerequisite; someone could suffer repeated trauma, never have a concussion, and still end up with CTE.

Changes to insurance legislation and how it will negatively impact our clients' entitlement to accident benefits.

On February 26, 2016 Bergeron Clifford hosted a seminar on the changes to the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS) which will come into force in the next few months, as well as the change from the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) arbitration regime to the new dispute resolution system under the License Appeal Tribunal (LAT) which will begin April 1, 2016. The reduced insurance benefits under the SABS are an item of great concern for many stakeholders, and the transition from FSCO to the LAT is somewhat of an unknown for many at this time. The lawyers at Bergeron Clifford and other Eastern Ontario industry experts and health professionals spoke and sat on a panel aimed at providing guidance in this time of uncertainty and change. Bergeron Clifford was very happy to host a government representative from the LAT who was able to give crucial insight into the new regime and the policy objectives set down by the Ministry of the Attorney General.
