What Do Personal Injury Lawsuits Look Like in Canada? Breakdown by Cause of Personal Injury
Canadian personal injury court cases are dominated by motor vehicle accidents—which isn’t exactly surprising—but it is surprising to see how many other causes of personal injury lawsuits get litigated in Canadian courts.
We analyzed all available Canadian courtroom data from 2004 to 2018, and found that personal injury lawsuits (at least the ones that make it all the way to a courtroom), can be broken down by cause as follows:
Motor Vehicle Accident
Slip & Fall or Tripping Accident
Misc. Accident / Injury
Assault / Battery
Sports and Recreational
Police / Municipal Liability
Misfeasance in Public Office
These types of courtroom analytics are fascinating to see and provide tremendous value to researchers, personal injury lawyers, and insurance companies.
