Mark Prefontaine, Alberta's Superintendent of Insurance, has announced the 2016 adjustment to the maximum minory injury amount (also known as "the minor injury cap"), increasing it to $4,956, up 1.3 percent from the 2015 maximum.

If you have sustained a soft tissue and/or psychological injury due to someone else’s negligence, do not assume your recovery is necessarily limited to the amounts prescribed by the Minor Injury Regulation.
