What does the minor injury cap mean?

Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI have a cap on general damages (such as pain and suffering) for injuries that are considered “minor”. Nova Scotia law defines “minor” injuries resulting from car accidents as sprains, strains, and certain whiplash associated disorders that do not result in a serious impairment. It is important to know that this cap does not apply to monetary damages like loss of income. It also only applies to car accidents, not to personal injury claims such as slip and falls, assaults, and injuries resulting from product defects.
