Preszler Injury Lawyers BC Help Injured Car Accident Survivor


The Supreme Court of British Columbia recently provided reasons in a case handled by Preszler Injury Lawyers concerning an injured survivor of a serious motor vehicle accident that occurred on May 18, 2018.

In Hann v. Lun 2022 BCSC 1839, ICBC was unwilling to make reasonable efforts to resolve the case. Our client’s life was severely altered after the accident, which occurred days before his 26th birthday. After sustaining his injuries, our client could no longer participate in sports like he did before the accident. He was in need of constant visits to various practitioners in order to cope with his resulting back pain. 

ICBC argued that some of his problems were related to a 2014 workplace incident that caused injuries to his thumb, as well as a prior knee injury.

Preszler Injury Lawyers argued that Mr. Hann should be awarded damages for the injuries caused by the car accident, as well as compensation for his loss of future earning capacity, since our client’s career prospects had been diminished as a result of the injuries he sustained. Loss of future earning capacity was a big point of contention at trial. ICBC argued that our client did not lose his ability to earn income at all, even though he had sustained serious, permanent injuries.

Justice Shergill appropriately disagreed with ICBC’s incorrect arguments and awarded our client $330,000 for loss of earning capacity. Preszler Injury Lawyers were also successful in obtaining an award for pain and suffering, out-of-pocket expenses, and future medical expenses. 

ICBC argued Mr. Hann’s claim was worth $60,000 to $70,000. The Court awarded $443,772.00, approximately seven times ICBC’s valuation!
