    Global News – Ontario Government Proposing to Reduce Accident Benefits

    In the blink of an eye and the twist in a road 11 years ago, the lives of two young sisters changed for ever.

    Shannon and Erica Deering were teenagers looking ahead to full and active lives.

    All that changed in a horrific crash when both sisters suffered dreadful spinal injuries that left them quadriplegic.

    Shannon and Erica were at Queen’s Park with other accident victims and the Personal Injury Alliance to protest changes to insurance rules introduced in last month’s budget.

    The government proposes to slash the maximum amount a person can claim for a catastrophic injury from $2 million to $1 million.

    And $2 million may sound like a lot of money, but when you’re paying for round-the-clock care, it gets eaten up quickly.
