Catastrophic Loss

The extensive experience of our catastrophic loss practice group in advising clients on catastrophic exposures is unparalleled in the insurance industry – rewarding us with the respect of our clients and members of the plaintiff bar alike.

We have handled hundreds of such cases since the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule relating to catastrophic impairment was brought into effect in 1996 – and have successfully represented clients defending catastrophic claims before the Financial Services Commission of Ontario.

Our practice chairs, Eric Grossman and Jennifer Griffiths, have written and spoken extensively on the evolving catastrophic threshold, serving as instructors at numerous continuing education seminars for both our clients and professional colleagues alike. Our articles on the catastrophic threshold have formed the basis of submissions to the government in support of government reforms, and have also been referenced by the Divisional Court in a leading case interpreting the catastrophic threshold.
