After being rear-ended by a full-size pick-up truck, our middle-aged client became dizzy and developed fainting episodes, severe headaches, significant chronic pain and depression. She became virtually housebound because of her condition. The defence took the position that none of her ongoing problems were caused by the crash, but rather a result of pre-existing conditions or simply “unexplained”. We hired expert physicians who confirmed that the crash was the cause of our client’s symptoms. At mediation, her claims against the driver and her accident benefits insurer were settled in excess of $1,250,000.
