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.
