September 30, 2015

At this year’s Back to School Conference, hosted by PIA Law and Toronto ABI Network, personal injury lawyers Darcy Merkur and Ryan Murray provided an overview of the upcoming changes to Ontario auto legislation with specific emphasis on Accident Benefits and Tort.

A few of the changes addressed were:

• Major reductions to statutory accident benefits (for accidents on or after June 1, 2016)

• A narrowing of the definition of “catastrophic impairment” (for accidents on or after June 1, 2016)

• An increase to the tort deductible (as of August 1, 2015)
