Mike Yawney, QC, along with Associate, Allison Jaquish, were retained by a 30-year old single mother after she suffered significant injuries in a T-bone collision in the North Okanagan. The woman suffered a broken clavicle and soft-tissue injuries to her neck, back, and bruising to both knees. Her injuries made it extremely difficult for her to return to work, but she continued to do so in order to support her young family. Medical experts concluded the young woman would continue to suffer from chronic pain going forward and would require ongoing rehabilitation. The court ruled in her favour and awarded damages of $420,000.00.
