Toronto Minor Injury Guidelines (MIG) Lawyers

In Ontario, minor injury guidelines deem certain kinds of injuries as minor and therefore possibly subject to a cap on insurance benefits. While this cap might be acceptable for those claimants who indeed have minor injuries, it is problematic for those whose injuries are in fact much more severe than what the guidelines account for. Our experience shows that more often than not, clients are placed within the minor injury guidelines (MIG).

At CHAGPAR LAW, Salina F. Chagpar and our team of Toronto minor injury guidelines lawyers (MIG lawyers) stand with clients who face a limited benefit payout because of this perhaps erroneous classification of their injuries. We take the time to understand and investigate the full scope of our clients’ conditions and use our experience and legal knowledge to gain them the appropriate level of compensation with a customized road map designed specifically for each client in an effort to establish a claim outside of the minor injury guidelines (MIG).

About the Minor Injury Guidelines

The minor injury guidelines apply to insurance company payments, as well as to payments from the Ontario government’s Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund. The guidelines define several kinds of injuries as minor, including but not limited to:

  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Whiplash
  • Cuts and abrasions
  • Partial joint dislocation

While these injuries may in fact be initially “minor” they can, if superimposed on prior health issues and or simply the passage of time develop into chronic issues that impede recovery. To protect your claims for past, present and future it is imperative to seek experienced legal counsel at the outset.
