Can cannabis help with your accident?
Medical Cannabis for Motor Vehicle Accidents
In Ontario, thousands of car accidents happen every day. While they may range from harmless fender benders to catastrophic accidents, they can cause physical, emotional, and long-term trauma for those involved.
Did you know that in Ontario, as part of automobile accident insurance policy, if you have injuries that are considered major injuries such as chronic pain, PTSD, etc. from your accident, you may be eligible for coverage of medical cannabis treatment for your symptoms?
Our team can work with you and your larger healthcare team to help you apply for these benefits and assist you in the on-going management of your treatment.
