    Calculating Pain and Suffering Damages

    Ottawa courts follow a functional approach to calculating pain and suffering damages and seek to provide “reasonable solace” for a claimant’s injury. The amount of compensation that constitutes reasonable solace is often determined by looking at previous cases involving similar injuries. By looking at prior case law, a court can get a better understanding of what might constitute reasonable solace for a given personal injury claim.

    Additionally, limitations on non-pecuniary damages may restrict the compensation a person receives for pain and suffering claims. In 1978, the Supreme Court of Canada determined that non-pecuniary damages could not exceed $100,000. The cap on non-pecuniary damages has since risen to about $360,000 to account for inflation. Similarly, other factors may limit or reduce the amount of pain and suffering damages a plaintiff can receive for certain types of cases like car accident claims, for example.
