Michael Yawney QC was asked to help a young man in his mid 20’s who was injured on Hwy 97 on his way to celebrating his graduation from UBCO. A vehicle turned onto the highway from a side road without looking, right in front of the young man requiring him to take evasive action and forcing him off of the highway. He suffered a serious ankle injury, as well as a concussion and soft tissue injuries. The concussion and soft tissue injuries resolved, however, his ankle was permanently impaired. Mr. Yawney resolved his claim shortly before trial for over $500,000.00 plus costs and future rehab expenses.
