Head on Collison resolves for over $1,000,000 plus costs
The mother of a 17 year old Kelowna student retained Michael Yawney QC to help her daughter with a claim from a head on accident on Hwy 33 east of Kelowna. The defendant driver was driving too fast for the winter road conditions and crossed the centre line into the client’s lane of travel injuring her spine which required surgery and the placement of hardware in her back. The injuries from the collision had a significant impact on her career plans and her ability to complete her post secondary schooling. At mediation months before a scheduled trial, Mr. Yawney was able to resolve the claim for over $1,000,000 plus costs.
