A Recent Success at the Court of Appeal

A decision from the Ontario Court of Appeal confirms a spinal cord injured person’s entitlement to accident benefits when he tripped over a motorcycle. Lerners lawyers Nigel Gilby, Jasmine Akbarali and Chris Dawson successfully argued that parking a vehicle is an ordinary and well known activity that would entitle one to accident benefits. This is a precedent-setting decision where the Court of Appeal confirms that there is no requirement that the vehicle be in active use in order for there to be an “accident”. Full decision can be found on the CanLII website.
