Suing After a Car Accident
When You Need Full Access To Support
When you are injured in a car accident that is another person's fault, you can file a lawsuit to recover damages. For many people, this is the only way to make sure they have the financial and medical resources they need for their immediate and long-term care. Many people are confused about the difference between no-fault Section B insurance benefits and a lawsuit, as well as how the two work together.

Factors That Affect A Car Accident Lawsuit
The provinces of Atlantic Canada have tort-based systems, which allow the Court to ensure that individuals who were wronged or injured receive compensation by the negligent party.
Lawsuits are unpredictable, and just as you are a unique individual with unique needs, your legal case will be unique. However, some common factors affect most car accident lawsuits. If you have been unable to work, will experience a change in occupation, had a lengthy hospital stay, or have complicated effects of catastrophic injuries, these will directly affect the nature of your lawsuit.
Damages you can recover will also depend on your specific situation. However, it is possible for some people to recover compensation for:
- Economic losses
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Health care expenses, such as medical bills not covered by Nova Scotia MSI or Section B
- Loss of valuable services such as housekeeping and home maintenance
