Meet Jon


Jonathan Abrametz is a trial lawyer, advocate, auto injury practitioner and principal of The Barrister Group 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. Jon has contributed to the legal community by presenting education seminars to other lawyers on Criminal law, the Saskatchewan bar admission course and has also served as editor of the Saskatchewan Bar Admission course materials "The Case for the Defence" in 2009 on Criminal Law. Jonathan is a private pilot and also holds a Chartered Director designation from McMaster University. Jon is a member of the legendary Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College Ranch Club.

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.

Auto Accident Insurance
in Saskatchewan

Since the advent of No-fault insurance in Saskatchewan in 1995, the system for compensating injured parties is dealt with by SGI adjusters. They make decisions about your entitlement to benefits that are final, subject to your right to appeal. There is a process by which an SGI adjusters' sometimes seemingly arbitrary or partial decisions can be tested in a judicial or quasi-judicial setting.

What is
No fault Insurance?

If you have not elected Tort insurance with SGI's Tort Declaration Form you, like 99.4% 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 cannot sue a negligent driver (and their insurance company) for the pain and suffering you experience, with certain exceptions.

However, you can sue for your economic loss, even if you have No-fault. 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.

Appeals Commission or King's Bench

No Fault benefit denial appeals are heard by either The Automobile Injury Appeal Commission or the Court of King's Bench. The Court of King's Bench is a longer process but adheres to common law principles that ensure procedural fairness.

The Commission is informal and currently not obligated to follow Supreme Court rules concerning procedural fairness such as admissibility of expert evidence. The commission members are political appointees who serve at the will of the Minister of Justice.  SGI has an overwhelming success rate in front of the commission. SGI achieves this success, in part, by using its own medical director to give evidence on a wide range of issues outside the scope of expertise of a family doctor or hospitalist such as engineering, radiology, psychiatry and physiatry. SGI has a lawyer appear for them to argue every single appeal.

Claimants succeed occasionally in front of the commission but the commission has never reimbursed a successful claimant's legal costs, despite the clear legislative discretion to do so. 

What is
Tort Insurance?

If you have elected Tort insurance using SGI's Tort Declaration Form, you have retained 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
