BC Resident injured in Alberta Settles Claim for $250,000.00


Michael Yawney QC was retained by a BC resident injured in Alberta while driving home from fire fighting in Northern Alberta. He was a passenger in a vehicle where the driver, also a BC resident, fell asleep and went off the highway. The client suffered soft tissue injuries, and a suspected concussion in the subject accident. After extensive investigation and rehabilitation, the client was able to substantially recover and carry on working in fire suppression, including working on the Fort MacMurray fire. With the assistance of litigation associate Ryan Irving, Michael was able to resolve the client’s claim prior to trial for $250,000.00 plus costs and disbursements.
