Thomson Rogers personal injury trauma lawyer Darcy Merkur was recently featured in a Law Times article titled “New year, same old story at the LAT” discussing punitive financial consequences for insurance companies as the only way to solve delays long-term.

“I can’t stand having to tell a client they’ve been wronged by the insurer and my recourse is to get in line and have it righted a year and a half from now, or maybe longer, at considerable expense to them due to the no cost-recovery system,” says Darcy Merkur. “The lineup keeps getting longer, the delays more frequent and accident victims have no access to benefits.”

Merkur continued:

“It takes a year or two to have a dispute addressed and there’s no cost consequences to the insurer — they don’t have to pay any more, the punitive interest was taken away and there’s no cost recovery.”
