We are pleased to announce that, after our client declined ICBC’s pre-trial offer to settle for $83,000, we proceeded to trial in the Supreme Court of British Columbia and obtained an award of $340,000 for pain and suffering, wage loss and medical expenses.
In July 2009, our client was rear-ended by a drunk driver at high speed and pushed into opposing traffic. As a result of the accident, she sustained soft tissue injuries to her neck, back, and right knee. She also started exhibiting symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and heightened anxiety and depression. Aside from a brief period immediately following the accident, our client was not able to return to her job as an apartment manager.
