New Deductibles for Auto Claims

Monetary Thresholds and Deductibles for Pain and Suffering in your Law Suit against the At-fault Driver

An Ontario car accident case has to be worth a particular amount of money before the injured person is entitled to get any money at all for pain and suffering.  If your injuries measure below the threshold, there is a deductible.  Since 2015, that deductible has been adjusted with inflation.

The monetary threshold beyond which the deductible amount does not apply is $123,016.99, in the case of damages for pain and suffering for accidents between January 1, 2016 until December 31, 2016.

The monetary threshold beyond which the deductible amount does not apply is $61,507.99, in the case of damages for a family member’s loss of care, guidance and companionship under the Family Law Act until December 31, 2016.

Wondering what deductible applies to your auto injury case?

The deductible for pain and suffering when your damages do not exceed the monetary threshold is $36,905.40 until December 31, 2016.
