Changes to Ontario Auto Legislation: Accident Benefits & Tort

Posted September 22, 2015


At this year’s conference, 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); and,
  • An increase to the tort deductible (as of August 1, 2015).
