The key to a successful settlement is a thorough investigation and a full preparedness for trial. It is through our trial experience and successes that we are able to obtain significant settlements for our clients. It is Webster & Associates’ reputation for trial preparation and willingness to take matters to trial that allows for the largest settlements.
In our practice approximately 80 to 90% of our cases are resolved before trial. Below, we have listed some of our recent settlements.
- $5,000,000 for a teenager who became a quadriplegic following a serious accident in the BC Interior (Okanagan).
- $2,000,000 + for a woman injured in a single vehicle rollover accident on ice in the Cariboo Region of BC. Her previous lawyer was unaware that there was anything seriously wrong with her. Though her family lived far away, we worked with them and with appropriate professionals to prove that her memory and executive function deficits affected her ability to care for herself, resulting in a very significant settlement.
- $2,000,000 (policy limits) for an older man who suffered quadriplegia (tetraplegia) when the vehicle, in which he was travelling a passenger, was struck in an intersection in the Fraser Valley.
- Policy limits for our client, a left turning vehicle. Our client was the servient driver (did not have the right of way) turning left when struck by the oncoming vehicle. We were able to show, based on the speed that the dominant (straight through with the right of way) driver was travelling and through his admissions upon cross examination, that the driver of the left turning vehicle fairly turned left, believing it was safe to do so, with the other car so far away.
