Success Stories

$12.5 Million Settlement

Young Woman Suffers Severe Brain Injury in Collision with Broken-down Snowplow

Our client, a young woman in her early 20s, was a passenger in her boyfriend’s car on a darkened municipal road in Eastern Ontario. She was not wearing her seatbelt when the car collided into the rear of a broken-down snowplow at a high rate of speed. Our client suffered a severe brain injury leaving her unable to continue her education, work, and requiring that she have supervision 24 hours per day for the rest of her life.


After a thorough investigation, we commenced a lawsuit against our client’s former boyfriend and the municipality who owned the snowplow. The parties reached a settlement of over $12,000,000 at the courthouse on the day trial was to begin. Our client now has the resources to remain safely in her home for the rest of her life.

$7 Million Settlement


Young Girl Awarded $7 Million after 4-Week Trial

Our client, on her last day of Grade 8, suffered a traumatic brain injury when she jumped from the back of her school bus on the last day of school. Our investigation revealed that it was a “tradition” at this school that Grade 8 students would exit the school bus from the back emergency door on the last day of school. The bus driver and the bus company failed to report this dangerous tradition to the school.

The bus company argued at trial that our young client was the author of her own misfortune by doing something reckless. But we were able to convince the jury that the adults in charge of the kids bore the majority of the blame by failing to put a stop to a dangerous activity for years.

After a lengthy contested trial the jury awarded our client more than $7,000,000 in damages. This money will allow our client to get the care that she requires in a home of her own.

$12 Million Settlement


Young Man Suffers Severe Brain Injury from Cargo Container

Our client, a young man, was driving along a secondary highway in Ontario. He had no way of knowing that a massive steel container had been loaded improperly onto the back of a tractor trailer. As the tractor trailer turned a corner the container came loose and flew like a missile into our client’s vehicle. He suffered a severe brain injury leaving him unable to work, unable to care for himself and requiring supervision 24 hours a day for the sake of his own safety and the safety of others.


We acted for this young man in an action against the owner of the truck and the manufacturer of the container system. In a mediated settlement we recovered in excess of $12,000,000 for our client. Our client’s guardian now has sufficient funds to purchase care for him for the rest of his life.
