Diminished Earnings due to Injury

An accident has more than an emotional and physical impact on your life. It can also have a serious financial impact. You may be unable to return to work after an accident, or you may have to take a different job with lower pay.

At CHAGPAR LAW in Toronto, we understand how difficult it can be to move forward with your life after an accident, especially when your injuries prevent you from working. With more than 20 years of experience representing injured clients, Salina F. Chagpar and our legal team will work to help you secure compensation for your diminished earnings due to your injury.

Income Replacement Benefits After a Motor Vehicle Accident

After a motor vehicle accident, you are entitled to income replacement benefits under a standard insurance policy. In general, if you were working when you were involved in the accident, you can receive varying law, income replacement assistance. You can receive up to $400 per week. You may not be able to return to your job and require retraining. At CHAGPAR LAW, we can advocate for your insurance company to consider covering the cost of your retraining program so that you can work towards returning to some quality of life after being trained in a program that will assist you in engaging in a new job. The maximum you can receive, however, is $400 per week. If your inability to work lasts longer than 104 weeks, the maximum decreases to $185 per week.

If you purchased additional coverage through your insurance provider, you may be eligible for additional income replacement benefits, above and beyond those provided for under standard insurance. Our legal team can help you understand those benefits and what you can expect to receive.
