In a Ontario personal injury claim, the victim must prove the fault of the other person or company that is responsible for the injury. While proving negligence can be challenging, the burden of proof is lower than the proof required in criminal law cases. In a criminal case, the prosecution must prove a person's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. To win a personal injury lawsuit based on tort law, the plaintiff need only prove that a majority of the evidence shows that an injury was caused by the defendant's negligent actions. This standard of proof is called "the preponderance of the evidence." The different burdens of proof mean that a company might be acquitted of criminal charges stemming from its actions, but be found liable in a civil lawsuit stemming from the same actions.

This can be short-term, or long-term where more serious injuries are concerned.

An injury may also impact upon a person's ability to maintain their home and perform domestic tasks such as housekeeping, lawn and garden care, and snow shovelling in the winter. As a result, you may be faced with the financial burden of hiring others to do what you previously did for yourself.
