Sparrowhawk v. Zapoltinsky 2012 ABQB 34
Insurance - Automobile insurance - Compulsory government schemes (incl. no-fault schemes) - Limitation on causes of action - Exceptions
Sparrowhawk suffered injuries in a motor vehicle accident. At issue was whether a jaw injury caused by the collision was a “minor injury” as defined by the Insurance Act, Minor Injury Regulation and Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols Regulation.
The Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench found that the jaw injury was not a minor injury.
