Know Your Eligibility and Details About CAP Claims in Calgary

Sometimes, motor vehicle accidents can result in minor injuries involving strains and sprains. Compensation for such minor injuries is covered under THE MINOR INJURY REGULATION. For such cases, the Government of Alberta has set the amount for compensation for minor soft tissue injuries. In 2021, the Alberta Treasury Board and Finance has set the CAP amount to $5,365. 

What is a CAP Claim?

As per the law, CAP claims are those injuries that are diagnosed as a strain or sprain to a muscle, tendon, ligament or joint, that does not affect the long-term functioning of the humban body or ability to work in the long run. Medical records along with the nature and duration of treatment determine whether an injury is minor or capped. Contact us today to discuss your CAP Claim.

Injuries That Fall Outside of the CAP

  • Broken bones/fractures

  • Spinal cord or brain injuries

  • Concussion

  • TMJ

  • Chronic pain

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Nerve injury

  • Mental, emotional, or psychological trauma

However, injuries like concussion, TMJ, mental, emotional, or psychological injuries can be considered as CAP claims only if they heal within a particular period of time. Injuries that at first appear to be minor may transform into long-term issues and fall outside of the CAP. It is best to discuss your case with our experienced lawyers to get advice.
