Categories: Blog, Personal Injury

From Our Personal Injury Group – Paul Mitchell Q.C recently settled a personal injury file dealing with a severe spinal cord injury. The client was a passenger in a motor vehicle that was ejected on impact. The client sustained a spinal cord fracture which resulted in paraplegia. Although the client and the family resided in the lower mainland, they retained Mitchell to act on the injured client’s behalf. Mitchell commenced a lawsuit against the driver and owner of the vehicle, as well as the manufacturer of the vehicle. The action involved the retaining of accident reconstruction engineers, which involved as an analysis of whether the seatbelts malfunctioned, and the analysis of the vehicles “black box”.
