Soft tissue injuries can be extremely debilitating. While some are fortunate enough to recover quickly, many soft tissue injuries result in chronic pain or even life-long permanent disability.
In Alberta, many whiplash injuries fall under the Minor Injury Regulations and the Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols, which collectively “Cap” or limit general damages for Grade I and II strains, sprains and whiplash (WAD) injuries suffered as a result of a motor vehicle accident. In November 2020, the Alberta Government expanded the definition of “minor injury” to include “any clinically associated sequelae of the sprain, strain or WAD injury, whether physical or psychological in nature, caused by the accident that does not result in a serious impairment.” Injuries from non-motor vehicle accidents are not capped.
For accidents occurring on or after January 1, 2021, the minor injury cap for whiplash injuries in Alberta is $5365. This cap may be adjusted over time to account for inflation.
Alberta motor vehicle accident law is becoming increasingly complex, with Alberta lawmakers continuing to change how whiplash injuries will be handled in court. Do not rely on what insurance companies tell you without first obtaining legal advice. The best way to protect yourself and your family after a whiplash injury is to work with a team of experienced medical and legal professionals.
