If you have been seriously injured due to a motor vehicle accident, you may be considered 'catastrophic' under the Statutoty Accident Benefits Schedule, even if you were at-fault. Being deemed catastrophic in relation to Accident Benefits entitles an injured person to comprehensive access to many more benefits compared to an individual who is not considered catastrophic. While the new legislation has made it progressively difficult for an individual to successfully claim catastrophic entitlement to benefits, individuals who have been deemed catastrophic by their regular medical practitioners and are denied access to catastrophic accident benefits should consult with an experienced accident benefits litigation lawyer to discuss their case and determine if they should litigate their entitlement to catastrophic accident benefits. Some injuries that may be considered a catastrophic impairment under the current Accident Benefits law include, but are not limited to, quadraplegia, paraplegia, amputation or other impairment causing the total and permanent loss of use of an arm or leg, total loss of vision in both eyes, as well as certain marked or extreme impairments due to mental or behavioural disorders. In addition, a score of 9 or less on the Glasgow Coma Scale, according to a test administred within a reasonable period of time after the accident, or a score of 2 or 3 on the Glasgow Outcome Scale, according to a test administered more than 6 months after an accident, could be considered a catastrophic impairment. Catastrophic impairment cases are complex in nature and only a skilled personal injury lawyer with strong knowledge in accident benefits law as well as litigation experience, will be able to help gain access to the benefits available in a catastrophic impairment case.
