Traumatic Brain Injury & Spinal Cord Damage

Clearly these major disabilities justify an award of fair compensation if the injury was caused by the negligence of another person.

Ontario Comparative or Contributory Negligence
In more serious cases in Ontario it is often worth asking a personal injury lawyer to take legal action even if the victim believes that they were entirely or partially at fault and responsible for their own misfortune. The trained legal mind can often find cause to apportion fault wholly or partially to a third party even when a victim may believe that the accident was entirely their own fault. Even if you were partly responsible for the cause of an accident you can often claim a proportion of the damages that would have been awarded to you on a full liability basis. This is known as the doctrine of 'comparative negligence' or 'contributory negligence' which applies where each party shoulders a percentage of fault and anyone injured who contributed to the accident receives a reduced payment to reflect their own share of the liability for causing the accident.
