Hit & Run resolves for $530,000


A man in his 70’s was hit and run over by a motor boat on a local Okanagan lake and retained Michael Yawney QC to represent him with his claim arising under federal marine liability legislation. The poor man suffered severe scalp lacerations, a concussion, various cuts and a broken arm and wrist. Although he was retired, he had an active life that was significantly impaired as a result of his injuries. Mr. Yawney was able to resolve his claim, without a trial for over $530,000.00.
