Radke v. Parry, 2008 BCSC 1397
Scott Stanley and Joe Murphy, Q.C. successfully represented the Plaintiff at trial. The Plaintiff sustained a concussion which the Defendant and her insurer strongly contested. After several days of evidence and demonstrating the profound nature of the Plaintiff’s difficulties, the Defendants insurer agreed to pay the full insurance policy limit of $1,000,000 plus the Plaintiff’s costs. The Defendant’s insurer tried to withhold payment of the $1,000,000 settlement funds until the amount of the costs was sorted out. Scott and Joe successfully obtained an order that the $1,000,000 be paid immediately and obtained a further order that the Defendants pay double costs to the Plaintiff for refusing to accept an early settlement offer from the Plaintiff.
