Insurer of Alberta Vehicle in Collision Pays $1,100,000.00


A Salmon Arm man in his early 50’s was seriously injured when an Alberta driver was going too fast around a corner on Hwy 1 West of Salmon Arm, BC, and collided head on with his vehicle. He had to be extracted from his vehicle by firemen after the collision, and taken by ambulance to hospital where he had to endure multiple surgeries.
He was referred to Michael Yawney QC, by a friend, to assist him in dealing with his injury claim.  After a lengthy rehab, and more surgeries, it was apparent that he would be unable to return to his job. His capacity to work had been significantly diminished.  Mr. Yawney was able to push the claim forward quickly and get it resolved just over two years after the collision occurred, forcing the insurer of the Alberta vehicle to pay approximately $1,100,000.00, including costs.
