Ms. MacGillivray was involved in a serious rear-end collision where she was struck from behind at nearly 100 kilometres per hour. She was 18 at the time of the accident and suffered soft tissue injuries, a mild traumatic brain injury, chronic pain, and psychological trauma that impacted all aspects of her functioning.
ICBC denied that Ms. MacGillivray suffered significant injuries and made a formal offer of $650,000. The Jury awarded Ms. MacGillivray 1.4 Million plus tax gross up and management fees. This case highlights the importance of having a law firm that will fight to the bitter end for your rights.
