TORONTO, May 25, 2016 /CNW/ - Starting June 1, 2016 there will be significant changes to accident benefits that will affect people who are injured in motor vehicle accidents. This affects every driver in Ontario as well as injured parties and their families.

The limits for medical/rehabilitation benefits and attendant care benefits for both catastrophic and non-catastrophic injuries are being severely reduced. In addition, there are changes to the definition of Catastrophic Impairment which will dramatically reduce the number of injured people whose injuries will qualify as being a catastrophic impairment. There are also reductions in the duration of benefits to non-working individuals (capped at 2 years as opposed to lifetime benefits under the current legislation).
