You v. Leung
ICBC Injury Claim and Serious Orthopaedic Injuries
Dairn Shane and Stephen Ferguson were counsel in the action of You v. Leung, Vancouver Registry No: M095778. The Plaintiff in this case suffered serious orthopaedic injuries which prevented him from returning to his previous employment as a tile setter. The case proceeded before a jury and was heard over the course of 12 days. After much deliberation, the jury awarded the Plaintiff a judgment in excess of $1,300,000 (less 20% for contributory negligence) as compensation for his injuries. This judgment included an award of $300,000 for non-pecuniary damages (pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life) and $783,000 for loss of future income. The verdict was a resounding win for the Plaintiff as the award significantly beat ICBC’s pre-trial offer to settle.
