2018 Minor Injury Cap Announced

Posted in: Personal Injury

The Nova Scotia government has announced that the minor injury cap amount for 2018 is $8,579.  This is an increase of $93 from the cap amount in 2017, which was $8,486.

The increase in the minor injury cap applies only to motor vehicle collisions that occur in 2018.   The increase was calculated using the Consumer Price Index published by Statistics Canada for the previous calendar year.

If you were in a motor vehicle collision and are unsure whether your claim falls under the minor injury cap, you would likely benefit from a free consultation with our accident and personal injury lawyers.  To speak with a member of our accident and injury team call (902) 460-9500.
