A serious injury may profoundly affect your life for months or years. A catastrophic injury may affect you for the rest of your life.
In Ontario, an injury is classified as catastrophic if it permanently impairs your ability to go back to your life as it was before the accident, in terms of your physical or mental abilities.
A catastrophic injury will require extensive medical and rehabilitative care. Even after working with doctors and rehab professionals, you may be unable to go back to work, or to work the way you did before your accident. You may also be unable to care for your family or participate in the activities you did before. You may even need help doing simple things like getting dressed, eating and getting around.
Our lawyers often have to fight for adequate compensation in catastrophic injury cases, as the expenses and losses can quickly become incredibly high.
