The Nova Scotia government has announced that the minor injury cap amount for 2017 is $8,486. This is an increase of $102 from the cap amount in 2016, which was $8,385.
The increase in the minor injury cap applies only to motor vehicle collisions that occur in 2017. The increase was calculated using the Consumer Price Index published by Statistics Canada.

Recently, governments have started to ease restrictions and, as a result, healthcare providers have started opening their doors for in-person treatments. We asked chiropractor Dr. Liam Ryan a few questions about the clinic Nova Physiotherapy and how it is operating during this time.
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many of the activities and routines in people’s daily lives. We asked chiropractor Kate MacAdam at Dr. MacAdam and Associates a few questions about her clinic and how it is operating during this time.
If you suffered minor injuries from a motor vehicle collision, Nova Scotia law sets a limit for the amount you can be awarded for your pain and suffering. This limit depends on the year in which the collision happened.
