Insurance defence litigator Cary Schneider has won an arbitration on behalf of Pembridge Insurance Company regarding claims for non-earner benefits, attendant care, and a claim for treatment in excess of $24,000. The adjudicator agreed with Pembridge that the claimant had failed to establish a baseline for his activities of daily living before the accident, and had failed to prove that his health had been compromised subsequent to the loss. The adjudicator agreed with the insurer that the claim for attendant care benefits was lacking in substance and credibility. The expense forms were all prepared four years after the accident and were vague in terms of the particulars. The adjudicator found that the claimant had failed to prove that the claim for dental care/treatment in excess of $24,000 was causally related to the accident.
