Here are the details from one case. (continued from above)

A jury awarded a verdict of $953,000 to one of Mr. Temple's clients as an ICBC whiplash settlement amount.

This client suffered what initially appeared to be a moderate whiplash injury after her car was rear-ended. These injuries usually go on to complete resolution without a trial.

She significantly improved during the first six months but less so during the next 6 months. After that she stopped improving and even deteriorated for a period. She ended up having to take up to 12 Percocet per day for her pain and attended a pain clinic to help reduce this. Her medical specialist, an anesthetist, gave her diagnostic injections of local anesthetic and cortisone into her various facet joints. These small joints are two of the three joints between each vertebrae. They are implicated by scientists to be the source of pain in many patients who experience long-term pain after a whiplash injury.

Under initial questioning by ICBC's lawyer, ICBC's star neurologist insisted that this woman's ongoing pain had nothing to do with the collision, and that her whiplash injury had healed completely. He also stated that her ongoing problems were caused by an increase in her pre-accident symptoms, her ongoing treatment, her perception of herself as a victim and as a sick person and from working too much. He was adamant that the pain was not a product of the collision.

In cross examination by Mr. Temple, the neurologist reversed himself. He admitted that the results of the facet joint injections (temporary pain reduction of 50% or more in expected areas) showed that the client's pain was coming from her facet joints at three levels of her spine. It was a remarkable about face for an expert witness.

After this admission, the tide had turned in this case. After a day and a half of deliberations, the jury unanimously decided to accept this client's ongoing pain was caused by the rear end collision. They also accepted that this pain was severe, partially disabling, and permanent. Justice was done by this jury of 6 men and 2 women.

$310,000 of this total of $953,000 was for her pain and suffering, and $400,000 was for her loss of future earning capacity. It awarded the balance under several other categories of damages including cost of future care and treatment, past and future loss of homemaking capacity, pre-tax loss of income and out of pocket expenses.
