Case study of injuries that wouldn't be a permanent impairment

Lisa's story

driver of a vehicle injured a collision

Lisa was a pedestrian who had a broken leg and a sore neck after being knocked over by a car.

Lisa wore a soft collar on her neck for 6 weeks after the accident and had two months of physiotherapy.

Lisa's neck is sometimes stiff. Lisa's leg went on to heal but still gives her some pain in cold weather.

Based on medical information obtained by the TAC, Lisa's injuries were unlikely to rate 11% or more.

The TAC did not send Lisa to medical examinations as it was unlikely that she would qualify for an impairment benefit.

Lisa is still eligible for medical and other support from the TAC regardless of her impairment score.
