2016

Kevin Hyde was co-counsel for a plaintiff property developer who successfully sued on an indemnity agreement for damages and costs amounting to $125,255.77 that arose out of a failed real estate transaction.

Alex Sayn-Wittgenstein and Paul Bosco represented a police officer seriously injured by a truck stolen from the Dueck car dealership lot in Vancouver. Dueck was sued in negligence for having left the truck unattended, with the engine running, doors unlocked, and keys in the ignition. The court dismissed Dueck’s summary trial application in which Dueck argued they should not be found liable for injuries caused by the car thief.

Scott Stanley represented the Plaintiff in this proceeding involved motor vehicle accidents that occurred on March 9, 2010 and December 7, 2013. Liability was admitted for both accidents.

The Plaintiff alleged that she sustained a neck injury which resulted in headaches and dizziness. While the Plaintiff was able to continue with her work for 3 years, she struggled to do so, and eventually stopped working. The Defendants position was that the Plaintiff sustained only minor injuries and was capable of working claiming that her problems were either exaggerated or not related to the accidents.

The Plaintiff’s case went to trial on April 25, 2016 and was heard by a Judge and Jury. The Jury awarded the Plaintiff $373,600 in damages, essentially accepting every claim that was advanced on behalf of the Plaintiff.

Bill Dick and Keri Grenier acted for a plaintiff who was 17 years old when she was struck in a crosswalk by a pickup truck driven by the defendant. The plaintiff’s principal issues following the injury included ongoing dizziness, headaches, anxiety and depression. At issue was whether the plaintiff suffered a mild traumatic brain injury, and whether her ongoing complaints were related to the accident or to other psychosocial stressors in her life as alleged by ICBC. After a two week trial the Court awarded damages totalling $347,581. The judgment included damages for loss of future earning capacity of $175,000.
