Author(s): Darcy R. Merkur

September 22, 2015


At this year’s conference, hosted by the Personal Injury Alliance (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 in their presentation 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).
