Uninsured Vehicle Complicates Claim


A young university student from Kelowna retained Michael Yawney QC to represent her on a claim for injuries suffered while a passenger in a vehicle driven by a classmate. Unfortunately, the vehicle driven by the classmate was from Washington State and ended up not having any insurance on it. This complicated the claim. Thankfully the student’s soft tissue injuries essentially resolved within a year of the accident and the claim was settled for just under $100,000.00. Knowledge and experience as to how to access insurance coverage where there is an uninsured vehicle was critical in this case.
