New Brunswick Considering to Increase Personal Injury Cap on Minor Injuries

Currently in New Brunswick, the cap on pain and suffering for minor injuries is capped at $2,500. However, a group appointed by the government is recommending this be increased to between $4,000 and $6,000. The current cap was set initially to stem insurance premium increases. People opposed to this current cap, argue that it is too low and that many injures, that are not "minor," are being labeled as such. The chairman of this government appointed review group, Michel Leger, said one of the most important changes to this is the definition of what counts as a minor injury. He said "[m] inor personal injury should be a sprain, strain or whiplash-associated disorder or a combination thereof, which results in minor consequences in a person's life."
