Preszler Injury Lawyers

Mississauga Catastrophic Injury Lawyer


After suffering an injury that is someone else’s fault, especially a serious injury, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries and emotional trauma. A serious injury could occur after a car crash, a workplace accident, or a slip and fall accident.

This type of injury is not your fault. Someone else behaved negligently, leading to the situation that caused your injury. In a case like this, you may want to rely on a Mississauga catastrophic injury lawyer to represent your interests and protect your right to seek compensation for your injuries.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we know how to defend the rights of our clients. We may be able to protect your interests against the insurance company, both in the negotiation phase and in court, should the case go to trial. Contact us as soon as possible as we are ready to begin working on your behalf.

Catastrophic Injury Examples

Under the Ontario Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS) Section 3.1(1), a catastrophic impairment meets certain requirements. Though, Ontario and Canadian law changes regularly regarding what exactly defines a catastrophic injury. This may lead to some disputes with insurance carriers, as they may disagree about whether your injuries are catastrophic.

  • Loss of hearing

Meeting Qualifications for a Catastrophic Injury Case

In some of these injuries, the victim must have a certain percentage of impairment or disability to qualify as a catastrophic injury. All of these definitions may be difficult to understand for the victim.

A Mississauga catastrophic injury lawyer is ready to stand by your side. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we may be able to help you figure out whether you have a case that meets the criteria for a catastrophic injury. If not, you still may bring a personal injury lawsuit that may compensate you for medical costs.

Circumstances Leading to Catastrophic Injuries

Many different types of accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries. The accidents we have listed here do not always rise to the level of catastrophic, but they sometimes do. Additionally, other types of accidents we did not list could be considered catastrophic.

Motor Vehicle Accident

Call 1-888-608-2111 for available options or Book a Consultation

A serious car accident may result in catastrophic injuries. If another driver is behaving recklessly, he or she could cause a crash, leading to potential injuries. Some of the ways drivers may cause injuries considered catastrophic include:

A motor vehicle accident may involve trucks, cars, and motorcycles. A motor vehicle could hit a bicycle or a pedestrian in this type of accident.

Proving Negligence

To receive compensation in a catastrophic injury case, you and your injury lawyer may need to prove that the other person behaved negligently or failed to take any action that could have prevented the accident.

In some cases, the court may find that the actions of both the other party and the victim contributed a certain percentage to the cause of the accident. As the victim, you could see your damages in the case reduced by the percentage at which you were found to be at fault.

We Can Help You Understand Catastrophic Injury Law

If you have suffered a significant injury in an accident, you are entitled to seek compensation. Should your injuries rise to the level of catastrophic, you can seek further awards for the extra care you require to deal with your injuries.

Call us at 1-800-JUSTICE as soon as possible. Because we work on a contingency fee basis, we do not charge fees for our services until we reach a satisfactory settlement. Our fees come from the settlement amount. If your injuries prevent you from traveling, we may be able to come to your location.
