Our client had closed their file noting no potential for recovery in this venue in Manitoba, Canada. The police report had blacked out private information making it difficult to review and identify the adverse party and carrier. We researched further and were able to obtain a report which identified the needed information to pursue a recovery. This was a $26,706 collision loss where the Adverse Party ran a red light and collided with our insured’s vehicle.
Investigation of the Canadian laws revealed that while we don’t have a right of recovery in some areas of Canada, we did in fact have a right of recovery in Manitoba against the Canadian Adverse Party with regard to the damages sustained by our insured. After an initial dispute, our recovery representative was able to prove liability and damages and ultimately settle the claim for 100%.
