A newcomer to Canada was on her way to her first day of work when she was struck by a car as a pedestrian. She had a previous history of complicated back surgeries in her home country many years ago.
The Insurer refused to pay compensation for her loss of earnings because it was their view that the victim did not have any Canadian work experience and her injuries were related to her back problems before the accident.
Anu contacted various witnesses in the victim’s home country and tracked down her doctors, medical records, newspaper articles and pictures relating to her active and successful life before she came to Canada. Anu built the client’s case that led to a significant settlement for income loss for this newcomer to Canada.
