FAIR Reponse to CAT Roundtable Discussions
September 9, 2013 | Bridgepoint Financial |Posted in News
"Confusion demonstrated by the FSCO CAT Panel in dealing with new catastrophic definition should be reason enough to go back to the consultation process"
FAIR's response to the Round Table discussions on the proposed "CAT Determination Guidelines" amplifies the need for injured individuals and their lawyers to aggressively manage access to funding and to document insurers refusal to provide treatment as they proceed though the claims process. Simply conceding defeat when a treatment plan is denied not only kills the rehabilitation process but can damage the economic value of a claim by limiting the "Future Care" argument in Tort.
Seeking care through OHIP providers and funding rehabilitation through personal resources and/or third party financing remains a viable option to mitigate damages while pursuing a fair settlement.Insights
