  • Can you Have Your Cake and Eat it Too?: The Deductibility of Future Benefits From SEF 44 Claims.

    $0.00

    This paper reviews the terms of the Alberta SEF 44 and the impact of 3 recent and contradictory Court of Appeal decisions from PEI, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. While none of these decisions is binding, the author notes that their impact in Alberta will be largely determined by the interpretation of the SCC decision in Somersall v. Friedman. The author concludes that the New Brunswick decision is inconsistent with the SCC characterization of the SEF 44 policy as “indemnity” coverage which should be interpreted in a way to avoid double recovery to the injured claimant. For this reason speculates that Alberta will not rely on the NBCA case, and will instead rely more so on the PEI and NS cases.

    This paper was drawn from materials presented at the Personal Injury and Insurance Update seminar held in May 2012.

    Wellness and client relationship management are included as competencies that lawyers are required to address in their annual continuing professional development plans. This paper discusses the interplay between a lawyer’s wellness (physical, emotional, and mental) and his or her capacity for consistent, exemplary client service through the lens and practice of mindfulness. It also explores “contemplative lawyering” as a practice to overcome conflict situations in the management of client relationships through an attitude of non-judgment, equanimity, and compassion. This paper argues that through mindful or contemplative lawyering, lawyers can achieve high standards of excellence and wellness.
