The claimant was injured in a motor vehicle accident and alleged the car accident caused physical and psychological injury, including nervous shock. The claimant emigrated to Canada 10 years before the application and had come with a history of experiencing beatings, tortures and slavery.
The defendant sought a court order for his file from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada in order to ascertain the claimant’s pre-accident psychological state. However, 1,650 pages of medical records relating to that issue had already been disclosed by the claimant before the application.
In refusing the application the court was clear in pointing out:
 The defendant has not provided an affidavit from a medical expert indicating that further information is necessary. Given what I set out above and what the plaintiff has acknowledged, it is doubtful that any further evidence as to the plaintiff’s pre-accident psychological state would be of assistance. The immigration file would shed marginal, if any light on this case. It would be a disproportionate invasion of privacy to order it to be produced.(Kim v. Samuel,2018 BCSC 1483)
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.
