Defining Catastrophic Injury
Those who suddenly face the prospect of life with a catastrophic injury must plan to spend a lengthy amount of time undergoing medical rehabilitation and their work, home life and personal relationships may never be the same.
Ontario law defines certain motor vehicle accident injuries as catastrophic for the purpose of insurance coverage. These injuries include paralysis, amputation, loss of vision and severe brain impairment. Severe chronic pain and psychological devastation can also be considered catastrophic. The legislation attaches certain conditions to these injuries for them to meet the definition.
If an accident victim's injuries are deemed catastrophic, his or her rights to motor vehicle accident insurance compensation increase. Rights to attendant care, medical and rehabilitation are significantly higher than they are for someone whose injuries are not considered catastrophic.
