Mr. Rudder will be speaking to the board members and the staff of the Head Injury Rehabilitation Ontario (HIRO), as part of its educational talk series. He will be speaking on the topic of catastrophic impairment law in Ontario, in general, and the specific criteria that must be satisfied in order to obtain the kind of catastrophic impairment designations (i.e. traumatic brain injuries, and mental and behavioural disorders) that many of their patients’ have sustained, in particular. For over 30 years, HIRO has been committed to working closely with acquired brain injury survivors and their respective families, in order to address the many challenges they face with dignity, respect, and expertise, which is why Mr. Rudder, who volunteers his time as director at HIRO, is so pleased to give this presentation to further help them with a deeper understanding of this niche area of the law.
Mr. Rudder will also be giving presentations to similar charitable, government-sponsored organizations like HIRO. He’ll volunteer his time to do this, in order to educate them about the legislative criteria in the Ontario Regulation 34/10: Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule, and the Insurance Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. I.8 that has to be satisfied for their severe brain injury survivors to obtain a catastrophic impairment designation, which will substantially increase their policy limits, and enable them to pay for the beds, as well the treatment, medicine and care services they need to optimize their independent living and reach maximum medical recovery.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
