Restaurant Owner Suffer Injuries, Resolves Claim for over $400,000.00


A take out food restaurant owner from Kelowna was injured when his vehicle was struck by another vehicle on the streets of Kelowna.  He was referred to Michael Yawney QC by friends.  He suffered debilitating neck and back injuries that impacted his ability to carry on his restaurant business. The claim was vigorously defended by the defendant driver’s insurer, which claimed that the man’s business wasn’t making any money anyway. 
The matter was scheduled for trial, but Mr. Yawney and fellow partner Ryan Irving were able to resolve the claim at mediation prior to trial, for over $400,000.00.
