A woman in her late 30’s was referred to Michael Yawney QC by a friend. She had suffered a severe whiplash injury after she was rear ended in traffic in Kelowna, BC. The injuries completely disabled her from working. The claim was resolved at mediation a few weeks before trial for over $650,000.00 plus costs and plus future rehab expenses to help her cope with the effects of her injuries. The key issue in dispute was her residual ability to work.
