Whiplash injuries settle before trial for $210,000


The daughter of a corporate client of the firm retained Michael Yawney QC to assist her with a claim for injuries suffered in an accident where the plaintiff had been hit hard from behind. The whiplash injuries she suffered impacted her sports and ability to work as a hair dresser, limiting how many clients she could see. The medical evidence supported that her capacity to work was partially impaired and that that would not get better as she aged. Mr. Yawney with his partner Allyson Edwards settled the claim prior to the start of a 5 day trial for over $210,000.00 plus costs.
