Ms. Lim is a registered physiotherapist who was injured in three separate car accidents that were not her fault.
Prior to the accident, Ms. Lim was a healthy and fully capable physiotherapist. However, her injuries became too much to bear, and she was no longer able to do the physical work required for her job.
Ms. Lim received compensation totaling $1.1 million to account for future loss of earnings and her pain and suffering. The award will cover ongoing medical care and reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses.
In its decision, the court took into account Ms. Lim’s age, how the injuries have impacted her personal and professional life and the likelihood of ongoing suffering.
Friends, family members, treatment providers and past coworkers testified on her behalf.
