    Note about "Ranged Injuries"
    • The following types of injury allow for payment of an award within a range (min. to max.).
    • Sexual Assault
    • Psychological or Psychiatric Disorder
    • Domestic Violence
    • You cannot be awarded for multiple ranged injuries. (eg. cannot be awarded for "Sexual Assault + Psych. Disorder", "Domestic Violence + Psych Disorder", "Sexual Assault + Domestic Violence")
    • You cannot be awarded for "Sexual Assault" or "Domestic Violence" together with physical injuries, as an award of "Sexual Assault" or "Domestic Violence" would represent the totality of all injuries received. (But you can be awarded for Psych. Disorder + Physical injuries)

    How the injury award is calculated
      • Compensation is only payable for a maximum of three compensable injuries from one act of violence.
      • If the application for compensation is successful, the compensation payable is: 100% of the amount detailed in the Schedule of Injuries for the most serious injury suffered + 10% for the second injury + 5% for the third injury
      • The maximum total payable cannot exceed $50,000
      • Threshold
      • the total compensation for injuries claimed must exceed $7,499 - if it doesn't, then the claim will be dismissed.
      • Expenses and financial losses are not included in calculating the threshold amount.
