GETTING PAID FOR NOT DOING HOUSEHOLD CHORES: LOSS OF VALUABLE SERVICES

While getting paid for not doing household chores sounds pretty sweet, the reality is that clients are only entitled to compensation for loss of valuable services when their injuries prevent them from doing things around the home. What chores and other services are compensable? Does it matter whether the client was actually doing the chores? How do you prove the loss? What expert is required? What evidence? Can you use Statistics Canada data as evidence? How do you calculate the loss? We’ve brought together a trial lawyer, a rehab specialist, an occupational therapist and an actuary to answer these questions and many more.
