Claim Settled Prior to Trial
Senior Litigation Partner Michael Yawney QC was retained by a young woman in her early twenties who was struck as a pedestrian while walking home from work in Vancouver. She was also involved in a rear end collision accident subsequent to that. She suffered physical and psychological injuries as a result of the accidents, including the loss of her spleen, chronic headaches and pervasive anxiety. Her claims were settled a few weeks before the scheduled trial date for over $750,000.00. The accidents and injuries impacted her ability to work and her future prospects.
