T-Bone Collision Results in $250,000.00 Settlement


Michael Yawney QC represented a Vernon woman who was t-boned by an Alberta driver in a large pickup truck who pulled out of a side street onto Hwy 97 without looking. The client suffered soft tissue injuries in the accident and was unable to drive for several months due to the trauma of the accident.  Fault was contested initially by the Alberta driver, but after legal steps were taken by Mr. Yawney, responsibility was admitted. A quantum trial to assess damages was set for July of 2017. Mr. Yawney was able to resolve the claim prior to that for over $250,000.00 plus costs and disbursements.
