The Quick & Dirty Personal Injury Update

Paula Puddy, HBA LLB MBA

In this video from the MLA, we have a few Personal Injury Updates to bring you up to speed on.

If you’re like most of us, the new Contingency Fee Agreement might be leaving you with a few questions. Andrew Spurgeon is here to give a run-down on the nuts and bolts of this new agreement, with points of interest including:

  • The Fee calculation formula
  • Role of "Costs"
  • Mandatory use
  • Flexibility
  • Required disclosure of maximum rates on the firm’s website
  • Provision of the Consumer Guide
  • Explanation of Reasonableness
  • Disclosure of client’s right to assess

Brendan Farrer also provides us with an update on the new notice period for injuries caused by snow or ice under the Occupiers’ Liability Act, and an update on recent case law regarding the limitation period for Family Law Act claims.

This session wraps up with Jim Mays, Dagmara Wozniak, and Kieran Dickson sharing their experience from one of the first virtual trials in the southwest region. In the likely event that judge alone trials will continue to be held on Zoom in the future, these are some helpful considerations for your future court appearances and trials.
