Our Paul Barnes recently represented a major accident benefit insurer in a case that went before the Licence Appeal Tribunal on claims for income replacement benefits and several medical and assessment expenses. Our client offered the claimant more than what it thought the claim was worth in a good faith effort to settle, but the claimant’s demands were excessive and beyond the range of reason. Our insurer client stood its ground and accepted Paul’s recommendation to stick to its principled settlement position.
The LAT Adjudicator who presided over the hearing issued a decision in mid-March 2018 that denied the claimant’s entitlement to every benefit that was claimed, resulting in a shut-out for our client.
In the famous words of U.S. President Ronald Reagan, “half a loaf is better than none”.
