Why is it important to receive a catastrophic designation?

The Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule provides up to $65,000 for medical and attendant care for up to five years, additional funds for income loss and other benefits such as housekeeping services for non-minor, non-catastrophic injuries. In contrast, catastrophic injuries may access up to $1 million for medical and attendant care and more for income loss, caregivers and housekeeping over a lifetime. There is a lot of money riding on making a successful claim for catastrophic injury benefits.
