In this Fast Track car accident injury case (Bissonnette v. Horn, 2012 BCSC 518) the injury claimant was a passenger in a vehicle driving southbound on 203rd Street, near Michaud Crescent, in Langley, B.C. Another vehicle, also traveling southbound on 203rd Street, cut off the claimant vehicle causing it to lose control, which then came in contact with a utility pole.
The main issues at trial were the extent of the claimant’s pain, what injuries were caused by the accident, and the proper measure of her compensation. ICBC argued that the complaints of left hip pain did not arise until years after the car accident and were not caused by the accident. ICBC relied on the evidence of Dr. Grypma.
The court accepted the injury claim despite the defence awarding $109,500 in damages consisting of the following:
a) Pain and suffering of $40,000;
b) $37,500 for past lost income;
c) $30,000 for lost future earning capacity;
d) $500 for out of pocket expenses, and
e) $1,500 for the cost of future care.

Jacqueline Small is diligent, professional, and compassionate. She went above and beyond when I was injured in a motor vehicle accident. Anytime I had questions she would respond quickly and always seemed to be one step ahead. I called several accident law firms and none were as knowledgeable and sincere as Jacqueline. Highly recommended!
I would totally recommend this law group. Renn handled my case with the utmost professionalism kept me informed throughout and explained in easy to understand layman's terms. I am very happy with how things worked out. I would highly recommend if you ever need a lawyer to contact him. Great job and a big thank you to all.
Over a period of 4 years Jacqueline Small guided me throughout the entirety of my personal injury claim after a motor vehicle accident left me with chronic pain. My experience was pleasant, professional, thorough, and communication was always open. I was treated with care like a person and not just a case. Jacqueline was with me every step of the way until we reached a settlement with the insurance company. 10/10 I would recommend to any friends or family.
