Ottawa Judge Awards $6.1 Million After Rollover accident on Highway 401

Ottawa Lawyer –  The Honourable Mr. Justice Quigley released his judgment yesterday in our case involving a man in his twenties who suffered a serious spinal cord injury, among other injuries, in a single vehicle rollover accident.  He was a passenger in the car.  The accident was near Brockville in early 2007.

The award totalled $6.1 Million, including damages for pain and suffering, future medical and rehabilitation costs, loss of income, loss of housekeeping and family law act claims for certain family members.

We had a great team of experts on the case:  occupational therapist Matilda Amos of Functionability, neuropsychologist, Dr. Catherine Gow, forsensic accountant Darrell Sherman from ADS, forensic engineer Peter Williamson,  labour market researcher Natalie Beck-Livingstone and life care planner Michelle Wagenberg of Carol Bierbrier and Associates.   His Honour (the judge) carefully reviewed all of this evidence when reaching his decision on damages.  This case is proof that putting together the right team is very important in order to get a fair assessment of your damages.
