PLAINTIFF

AND:

TUNG YUAN AND NORTH SHORE TAXI (1966) LTD.

DEFENDANTS

 

 

TRIAL SUMMARY

[Rule 22-3 of the Supreme Court Civil Rules applies to all forms.]

Counsel for Plaintiff: Irina Kordic

Counsel for Defendants: Diane Weinrath

This proceeding involved an injury that occurred on October 20, 2006. The Plaintiff was waiting in line to turn left at an intersection. The light changed from green to amber, so the Plaintiff remained stationary. The Defendant, Tung Yuan, a taxi driver for the other Defendant, North Shore Taxi (1966) Ltd., rear-ended the Plaintiff’s vehicle. The Plaintiff alleged that she continued to experience tension in her shoulder blades and her neck, resulting in headaches and limitations to her normal activities.

The Defendants claimed that any injury sustained by the Plaintiff was minor and had long since recovered. They contend that the present symptoms were not related to the accident.

The Plaintiff’s case went to trial on September 27, 2010 and was heard by Madam Justice Morrison. The Honourable Madam Justice Morrison awarded the Plaintiff $46,863.54 in damages.
