Partner, James E. Dunn, and associate, Hue Nguyen, recently represented the successful parties in a Superior Court of Justice jury trial in Brampton: Tony DiCeglie et al. v. Gurjant Singh Sidhu et al. The matter was heard over 7 days and the jury, after deliberating for 4 hours, returned their verdict on January 14, 2016.
Blouin Dunn represented the owner / driver of a large commercial vehicle that collided with a vehicle that made a left hand turn in front of the truck at a busy Brampton intersection. Tragically, both occupants of the left turning vehicle died and their surviving family members sued Blouin Dunn’s clients. The damages for the Plaintiffs were settled but the insurers of the two vehicles could not agree which driver caused the accident. Blouin Dunn’s client offered to accept a 40% contribution but the opposing insurer would only offer 10%.
The jury deliberated and found that the driver of the left turning vehicle was 70% responsible for the accident.
