A local motorcycle association referred a man from Alberta to Michael Yawney QC to assist him with his claim for injuries from an accident where a BC driver pulled out in front of him on Hwy 97 without warning.
The man suffered serious orthopedic injuries that required multiple surgeries and an extended stay in hospital. His injuries also affected his capacity to work as a mechanic, reducing the amount of work he could sustain post accident. Mr. Yawney was able to resolve the claim against the BC driver despite liability being contested and the presence of deduction issues regarding the client’s own insurer. The claim was resolved for $750,000.00 plus costs and disbursements, and the client continues to receive disability benefits from his own insurer as well as coverage for physio and other future care items.
