Our client, a middle-aged resident of Eastern Ontario, was injured when the vehicle he was operating was struck from behind by another vehicle as he was waiting to make a left turn.
As a result of the accident, our client suffered pain across his body, including his neck, right arm, shoulders, hip legs and back. He also experienced headaches and psychological symptoms, including social withdrawal, driving anxiety and depression.
As a result of his injuries, our client was unable to return to his part time job.
Our lawyers were able to have the accident benefits insurer agree that our client was catastrophically impaired and then negotiated a settlement of all accident benefits claims for approximately $800,000.00 and settled the negligence claim against the at-fault driver for an additional amount of approximately $300,000.00.
