Alberta’s Minor Injury Cap

If you have sustained a soft tissue injury in a car accident you may have heard people talking about the minor injury cap and you may even have been told that your injury is “caught by the cap.”  The cap is a cap on damages payable for pain and suffering for this type of injury but it does not always apply to soft tissue injuries. Where a soft tissue injury has caused you to experience chronic pain symptoms over an extended period of time it may well be that the cap does not apply.

If you have questions about whether the cap applies to you we encourage you to contact us or another lawyer to find out more. We are happy to talk with you about your case and we’ll tell you what we think.
