She defends insurance claims covering all aspects of general insurance liability, including motor vehicle accidents, health and disability, occupiers’ liability, slip-and-falls, social host liability, general negligence claims and statutory accident benefits with a particular focus on complex catastrophic disputes and WSIB defences.

Jane has represented clients in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, Financial Services Commission of Ontario, Safety, Licensing Appeals and Standards Tribunals Ontario, Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal and at private arbitration hearings.

READ SUMMARY

The Court of Appeal rejected three grounds of appeal:

1) the trial judge did not err in restricting the scope of testimony of the appellant’s expert;

2) the trial judge did not fail to declare a mistrial due to inappropriate closing submissions by the respondent’s trial counsel; and,

3) the trial judge did not fail to provide sufficient guidance to the jury on the appropriate range for non-pecuniary damages.
