Vehicle Written Off in Collision, Claim Settles Prior to Trial


Michael Yawney QC and partner Allyson Edwards took on a claim by a gentleman in his late 50’s, whose vehicle was written off in a collision on Hwy 97.  The man suffered soft tissue injuries that aggravated prior health issues, including back problems.  The defendant’s insurer labelled him as having “pre-existing conditions” and refused to be reasonable. 
Mr. Yawney and Ms. Edwards were able to settle the claim for a fair amount a few months before trial.
