TYPES OF DAMAGES
When determining compensation amounts, the law considers many variables. Pain and suffering, loss of wages, and the need for costly ongoing medical treatments are just some of the factors reviewed. Our vast experience will ensure your case is valued fairly.
When you suffer an injury caused by someone’s negligence, you are almost always entitled to non-pecuniary damages—a legal term for an award intended to compensate you for pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment. The amount will vary, depending on the nature, severity, and duration of the particular injury.
If you have lost income because of an injury, you are entitled to recover it from the negligent party who caused harm. This loss can include lost wages and commissions, missed promotions or raises, lost job opportunities, and diminished business income.
An injury could well result in lost opportunities to earn income in the future. These claims typically arise when a person never returns to work following an injury, returns to reduced hours, or returns to their former employment at regular hours but in a diminished capacity.
These claims are to cover the treatment, rehabilitation, and homemaking assistance an injured person may require in the future—in some cases, for the rest of their life. Awards are broad and can include physiotherapy, massage therapy, kinesiology, ergonomic equipment, home aids, homemaking assistance, counselling, or psychological therapy. In order to be covered, the care item must be shown to be reasonable and medically necessary.
A negligent defendant is required to pay an injured person’s out-of-pocket expenses for things such as medical services, ergonomic equipment, medication, and damaged personal items.
If a homemaker is injured and left unable to perform the household chores that he or she once did for the family, they may be entitled to a loss of housekeeping services award. Alternatively, an award for housekeeping assistance may be advanced as part of a future care claim.
