We take great pride in realizing victories for all our clients’ causes, however certain victories remind us why we work so hard to protect their best interests.
Such is the case of 95 years young, Mrs. Nolin. Following a terrible accident which occurred in the elevator of the assisted living residency in which she resides, our firm obtained a judgement granting her $100,000. This amount is significantly higher than the norm for a victim of such an age in the Quebec legal system.
Following the aforesaid judgement, the insurance company for the Résidence Sainte-Claire unsuccessfully attempted to have the judgement revoked. Not only did the judge reject their request, they were further ordered to pay a part of Mrs. Nolin’s legal fees in virtue of their abusive use of procedure.
We had the privilege to deliver to Mrs. Nolin the cheque corresponding to the judgment in capital, interest and fees. We invite you to take note of the published judgement at the link provided: http://canlii.ca/t/hrxdh.
