Bob Bush and Mark Tinmouth represented the Plaintiff in the recent case of Raedwulf v. Kelly, 2020 BCSC 915, securing a judgment in excess of $1,000,000 for their client. In its findings pertaining to the injuries and losses suffered by Ms. Raedwulf, the Court acknowledged the profound impact the accidents and injuries had on Ms. Raedwulf’s life and future career.
Ms. Raedwulf is a teacher at the beginning of her career. She was involved in two accidents that caused her a mild traumatic brain injury, chronic headaches, balance issues, lower back injuries and an anxiety disorder. The injuries affect Ms. Raedwulf’s ability to teach to her capacity and affect her ability to fully engage in the activities that bring joy to her life, including music and family.
The award includes compensation for pain and suffering, loss of earning capacity (past and future), loss of net pension benefits, costs of future care and special damages. Significantly, the Court rejected the position put forward by ICBC and accepted the evidence put forward by the Plaintiff, her experts, and her witnesses that Ms. Raedwulf will never be able to work full time and will at best be able to maintain half-time work.
