Your support team
Each seriously injured/severely impaired worker has a support team from our Serious Injury Program. Your support team meets together to learn about your case and find the best solution for you. Your team will have:
- a Case Manager
- an Occupational Therapist
- a Nurse Consultant
Who are severely impaired workers?
We consider impairment to be severe if the degree of impairment:
- is permanent and you receive a 60% or more non-economic loss (NEL) benefit in one or more files;
- is permanent and is recognized, in one or more claims, by permanent disability (PD) benefits totaling 100%; or
- is, in the opinion of a WSIB health care professional, likely permanent, and at a 60% or more NEL or a 100% PD benefit.
