Catastrophic Injury

A catastrophic injury is a serious and permanent personal injury which causes dramatic life altering losses to victims. These losses often include quadriplegia, paraplegia, traumatic brain injury and death. A catastrophic injury impacts both the victim and the victim’s family emotionally and financially. Catastrophic injuries occur as a result of slip and fall incidents, motor vehicle accident, boat accidents, or medical malpractice.

In Canada, there are limits on the amount of compensation any injured victim can receive for their pain and suffering regardless of the seriousness of the injury. There are also maximum amounts of insurance available to satisfy a claim.

Our office assists victims of catastrophic injuries in accessing the wide variety of medical and rehabilitation resources available to ensure that the victim’s needs are met quickly and effectively and the maximum amount of compensation is achieved.

Our office will work with case managers, occupational therapists, rehabilitation therapists and other professionals to ensure that the victims of catastrophic injuries are provided with the best treatment.

Van Dyke Law office is experienced in dealing with catastrophic injuries and will ensure that the maximum compensation is obtained.

If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, call any of our three offices in Ottawa, Kingston and Belleville to arrange a free consultation. Free home visits can also be arranged if that is more convenient. Van Dyke Law Office serves the greater Ottawa region and all of Southern Ontario.
