Are there damage cap limits for someone deemed to have a catastrophic injury?
Ontario law imposes certain damage caps that may limit a catastrophically injured person’s recovery. For example, there is a limit on damages for pain and suffering, which is capped at about $370,000 as of 2020, although this amount will increase each year with inflation. Damages for income loss and future cost of care (medical expenses) do not have a cap.
