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."
