5. How much money can I expect from the legal action?
Although there are no definitive answers to this question, because the money will depend on numerous factors, there are some monetary caps that can give you a general idea of the awards you may receive. Unlike in the United States, in Canada the awards for pain and suffering caused in a personal injury incident are maxed at around $310,000 - $330,000. However, it is important to note that in Canada, there are no cap amounts on damages awarded for: income that you lost from before the accident and income that you will lose in the future because of the accident, past and future attendant care, a loss of the ability to be competitive in the work place, and others.
