Michael Yawney QC and Allyson Edwards assisted a young lady from Vernon who suffered soft tissue injuries in an accident where she was a passenger in a vehicle. As a server in a restaurant her work exacerbated the effects of her injuries and made it difficult for her to recover. Our team assisted her with arranging rehab and therapies, helping her get to the point where she had substantially recovered. Her claim was resolved without a trial for over $95,000.00 including out of pocket treatment expenses and costs.
