A young man from Lumby, BC was rear ended at highway speed while driving in the Kootenays. The female driver that hit his vehicle, bending the frame, admitted fault for the accident. Michael Yawney QC was retained to pursue his claim for damage for the injuries he suffered in the accident. His injuries impacted his career plans to be a mechanic, and while he was able to successfully pursue an alternate career, the impact on his life was significant. Mr. Yawney and litigation associate Ryan Irving were able to resolve his claim prior to trial for over $400,000.00.
