ZTGH Big Wins
We had some big legal wins at the firm recently, as a result of some incredible team work. If I am forgetting anyone, please let me know for inclusion in next month's news.
Jen had a win at the LAT where the insured had claimed travel expenses to visit her family as a rehabilitation benefit. The Adjudicator held that to be payable, the expenses must be both reasonable and necessary. While reasonable for her rehabilitation, personal travel was not necessary and therefore the expenses were not payable. You can read the decision on her bio here .
Andrew and Shanti secured a costs award of $3,500 inclusive of disbursements for the Plaintiff in Asrat v. 1438305 Ontario Inc

Andrew argued it in writing and Shanti argued the motion in person. 

The cost endorsement is a pretty juicy read, you can find it on both Shanti and Andrew's bios.

   The ZTGH Blog
We publish case commentaries on our website 1-2 times a week, written and edited by our lawyers. Sharing is a super kind thing to do . Please take a moment to share one of our blogs on your Linkedin page. Our most recent blogs include:
Did you know that ZTGH has a podcast where the lawyers discuss recent jurisprudence? I am biased, but I love them. Our latest podcast features Sharla and Danielle chatting about how the LAT is interpreting catastrophic impairment. Take a listen and let me know what you think .
ZTGH LAT Resources
Patrick and Timmie developed an incredible LAT resource on Primafact in the Precedents folder.
