Hammerco Partner, Dale McGregor, helped our client previously for a tragic 2008 motorcycle collision that ended her working life. In 2015 and 2016 she was then involved in two further collisions that left her even more disabled than before.

ICBC denied that the other motorists should be held responsible, and also denied our client coverage of any of her additional medical care costs. They utterly devalued her life and her worth. This approach by insurance companies, where disabled people are deemed to be worthless, is unacceptable to us.

We went to trial for on behalf of our client and sought fair compensation for her harms and losses. After masterfully marshalling the evidence, proving that our client’s capacity was further diminished and that she would carry these injuries for the rest of her life, our system of justice appropriately awarded our client with the compensation she both needed and deserved. 

We advocate for the disenfranchised and the regular person who does not have the financial wherewithal to go toe-to-toe with multi-billion dollar insurance companies.

The decision of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, authored by the Honourable Justice Crerar, recognizes not only the real losses suffered by our client, but also appropriately assigns fault to those who caused these injuries.
