Jonathan Abrametz is a trial lawyer, advocate, auto injury practitioner and principal of KMP Law North in Saskatoon who practices primarily in no fault and tort auto injury claims in both Saskatchewan and Alberta; fatal accident claims; personal injury claims and residential and commercial real estate investment and transaction.
Jonathan has been involved in charitable and community organizations including the Kinsmen club of Saskatoon as agent for the Kinsmen Sports Celebrity Dinner.

The bulk of Jonathan's practice consists of representing people who have been injured in auto accidents with many reported decisions from every level of Saskatchewan's Courts. In Saskatchewan, claims for "pain and suffering" can be advanced when the driver is impaired, when the driver has injured you on purpose with their vehicle and been convicted criminally or if you have elected tort insurance. Jonathan represents Saskatchewan victims of auto injuries whether their accident took place in Saskatchewan or Alberta.
Jonathan is most proud to represent peoples whose voice has been marginalized by a complicated judicial system and whose civil and legal rights are in jeopardy. Jonathan is proud to represent clients from across our great Province.
Since the advent of No-fault insurance in Saskatchewan in 1995, the system for compensating injured parties was dealt with primarily by SGI adjusters. Saskatchewan motorists who have No-fault get automatic benefits regardless of who's fault the accident was. Persons with Tort can sue the at fault driver for pain and suffering, up to aproximately $350,000, depending on the year of the accident and, in addition, for the economic losses they suffer.
If you have not elected Tort insurance with SGI's Tort Declaration Form you, like the majority of Saskatchewan's insured have No-Fault insurance.
In simple terms, your No-Fault designation means that if you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, you can sue for your economic losses but cannot sue an at fault driver (and their insurance company) for the pain and suffering you experience, with certain exceptions. For example, if the driver was convicted of impaired driving or of injuring you on purpose, you can sue them for your pain and suffering.
No-fault benefits come with limitations though. For example, SGI will pay only 90% of your Yearly Employment Income, up to a maximum of approximately $85,000 (depending on the year of the accident). However, even if you have No fault, economic losses not covered by SGI can be claimed by way of an "Economic Loss" lawsuit under the No Fault system against an at fault driver, including the income loss over SGI's maximum.
Jonathan S. Abrametz can assist you in navigating through the No-fault system, and assist you with answers to questions and possible legal issues arising from the compensation under this system.
The Automobile Injury Appeal Commision is one of the options for Saskatchewan Motorists in the "no-fault" system. If you do not agree with an SGI adjustor's decision, the SGI decision can be appealed to the Commision.
Tort insuance is exactly the same cost as No-fault insruance and it is free to switch over. If you have switched over to Tort insurance using SGI's Tort Declaration Form, you have secured your right to sue an at fault driver for the pain and suffering caused by the accident and for complete compensation to any loss you may have suffered, with certain exceptions.
As well, you are still entitled to certain No-fault like automatic benefits under tort, although they are limited in comparison to no-fault.
Jonathan S. Abrametz can assist you in understanding the litigation process and pursue your claim, ensuring you get the compensation that you deserve
