Closing a case at a favorable point with a favorable result.

  • Our client: A national insurer with operations in Alberta was facing a complicated, injury-related claim comprising several factors. These included the possibility of a pre-existing medical condition and a demand against future income. Furthermore, the stated claim was in excess of policy limits.
  • Our strategy: Our defense strategy was to efficiently overcome the plaintiff's medical experts by leveraging documents and records to seek a mediated resolution. As Randal put it, "We were flexible and quickly switched gears."
  • The result: By using the right information and through good questioning, we were successful in getting the plaintiff to agree to mediation, bringing the case to a favorable end without the increased time, risk and expense of a trial.
