Of all the jargon associated with Canadian law, tort seems to cause the most confusion. In the first place, it sounds sort of like a dessert and in the second place, no one seems to have any idea of what the term means. While it is safe to say you cannot eat a tort, that knowledge still does not tell you what the term is all about.

Below you will find a few basic pieces of information about tort claims as related to injuries received in car accidents or other motor vehicle crashes. This should assist you in navigating the areas of the law that might pertain to your case.


  • Serious and permanent disfigurement such as scars or deformities.
  • Serious and permanent impairment of one or more physical abilities, or;
  • Serious and permanent impairment or one or more psychological or mental abilities

What you can sue for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Out of pocket expenses
  • Lost wages and future lost wages
  • Impairment of the ability to earn an income
  • Business losses
  • Loss of a competitive advantage within the work place

It is also important to note that the injured party can file a tort claim even if he or she is receiving Accident Benefits. Between the tort case and the Accident Benefits, the injured party will likely be able to comfortably cover medical and living expenses and not have to worry about lost wages.

The injured party can file a tort against the driver of the other motor vehicle involved in the car or truck accident or the driver of the car in which the victim was injured.

As you can see, filing a tort claim for personal injuries incurred in a car accident is a viable approach to recovering damages for your case. We invite you to browse our car accident web pages to learn more about filing a tort claim in Ontario and other Canadian locations.
