Because obviously he suffered SOME damage, whether thats mentally or physically. And the defendants involved are liable here.
But asking for 20 million makes him seem like a dick. Not that it's the first (or last) time anyone has sued someone for a ridiculous amount.
Basic rule of pleadings for a Plaintiff in respect of personal injuries and future loss of income earning capacity, take all contingencies into account positively and calculate claimed damages from that perspective.
It means little and is not binding except possibly as an upper limit (I am unsure if this is so under the Ontario Rules of Civil Procedure) but this is usually the reason.
