Muliple roll over accident resolves for over $850,000 plus costs


Michael Yawney QC was retained by the father of a 16 year old girl who was involved in a multiple roll over accident on a highway in the Kootenays where her mother was driving and passed away as a result of the accident. The client suffered a mild brain injury and psychological injuries that impacted her ability to finish high school and to work with any consistency. Mr. Yawney had to assist with retaining treating therapists and arranging rehabilitation for the girl because her life was turned upside down with the loss of her parent and the injuries she suffered in the accident. After 4 years of assessments and preparing the matter for trial, the claim was resolved for over $850,000.00 plus costs.
