New on otlablog.com: Statistical Analysis of Decisions to Date
Starting April 1, 2016, the Licence Appeal Tribunal (LAT) took over hearing Statutory Accident Benefits disputes. The first LAT decision was released online in July 2016. With the LAT just turning 9 months old, this post examines the LAT decisions published online to date.
On June 1, 2016, Adam Bari was struck twice: first, in a near-fatal motorcycle accident that resulted in multiple broken bones, brain trauma, and organ damage; and then by a change to the definition of catastrophic impairment that left his family in danger of bankruptcy.
This change places a significant burden on the most vulnerable accident victims and their families. As a result of the mid-policy definition change, Adam was unable to access nearly $2 million in benefits.
