Objectives

2.5 CE credits for General and Adjusters licences


To much fanfare, the Minor Injury Regulation and other legislation, including the Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols, was passed on October 1, 2004, changing the way personal injuries claims would be handled from tort and no-fault perspectives. After discussing the legislation, its intent, and its constitutionality, we will review the cases that have considered whether the legislation’s original goals were met. Finally, we will discuss where the law is going.


Topics

  • October 1, 2004, Minor Injury Regulation, Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols, and amendments to the Insurance Act and rating
  • Intent of the Minor Injury Regulations
  • WAD I and II: strains and sprains
  • How much suffering is needed?
  • Court cases
  • Was the law constitutional? What about other provinces?
  • Issues over the years
  • Cap erosion
  • Cases
