If I don’t meet the threshold, does that mean I have no case at all? by Patricia Santucci
Not necessarily. If your injuries are such that they do not pierce the threshold you may still have a case if you have sustained economic losses and housekeeping losses as a result of the accident. You do not need to meet the threshold for the purposes of economic losses or for a housekeeping claim and home maintenance claim however, you will need to prove that those losses are related to the accident on the balance of probabilities; that is, you will have to show that it is more likely than not, that your injuries and the losses that flow from them are related to the accident.
