Roberts v. Morana: $4.8 Million Personal Injury Damage Award

Jul 18, 2000

Mr. Shekter broke new ground on government liability for road maintenance and set a new bar for personal injury damages judgments. The plaintiff was awarded what was at the time one of Canada's largest personal injury awards in the amount of $5.2 million against three defendants, including Ontario's Ministry of Transportation. The trial judge, Justice O'Brien, commented, "By way of overview I state that I have not seen a case which has been better prepared or presented than this one."

Richard, you never cease to amaze me. You find issues that others would easily pass over as not being central to the case or to the client’s liberty, or being just too tough or complex to address…and then you work them like no one else. It is a combination of art and science…and you are both an artist and a scientist. Well done and thank you.
