Ontario Pain and Suffering Lawyers

In addition to compensation for medical expenses and lost wages, car accident victims in Ontario may be eligible to receive compensation for the pain and suffering against at-fault driver(s). The severity and extent of your injuries may demand a greater need for compensation to help account for  your short-term financial losses and the long-term debilitating impact of your injury on family and loved ones.

Pain and suffering compensation is subjective, making them more difficult to prove. At Juzkiw Law, Stefan Juzkiw and our team have the experience to help you understand how to calculate the potential value of your pain and suffering so that you have the chance to secure maximum compensation for recovery. Our meetings with clients over the years have given us a unique perspective of the life-altering impact a severe injury has on the lives of individuals  injured in an accident. Pain and suffering involve all physical, emotional trauma, and psychological pain which stems from an accident, including but not limited to:

                  o   Physical injury and or pain

                  o   Depression

                  o   Fear

                  o   Grief

                  o   Anxiety

                  o   Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

                  o   Shock

                  o   Insomnia

                  o   Loss of enjoyment of Life

                  o   Mood swings

                  o   Loss of appetite

  • The above-noted includes the negative feelings that an accident victim may have already suffered, as well as those they are likely to suffer in the future. Moreover, everyone experiences pain and suffering differently, and the value of their pain and suffering claim will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Financial Support and Resources

  • Accident benefits are available to all injured parties privy to a motor vehicle collision.  Moreover, those individuals whose injury has resulted in a severe permanent physical and psychological impairment may be able to sue the at-fault party. This right continues to exist for victims despite the insurance company’s position that the injured party is partially to blame for an accident.   

 Additional heads of damages in which compensation may be available as per a pain and suffering lawsuit include:

  • Past and Future wage loses not covered by the accident benefits insurer
  • Attendant Care benefits
  • Housekeeping benefits
  • Medical Treatment/Rehabilitation benefits
  • Compensation for loss of care, guidance, and companionship, claimed by other family members in relation to the victim’s injury
  • Funeral and Travel expenses
  • Other Out-of-Pocket expenses

 It is important to emphasize that compensation for pain and suffering and other heads of damages are separate and do not form a part of accident benefits.
