SUCCESSFUL CASES

null
General Motors of Canada Ltd. v. Boyer, 2017 QCTAT 3576

In this decision, the CNESST determined that our client died from sarcomatoid malignant pleural mesothelioma caused by occupational asbestos exposure that occurred when he handled brake pads while employed by General Motors of Canada Ltd. As a result of this ruling, compensation was paid to the deceased’s estate in accordance with the Act respecting industrial accidents and occupational diseases.

null
Smith v. Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec, 2016 QCTAQ 04765

In this ruling, the Tribunal Administratif du Québec upheld our client’s appeal by setting aside the SAAQ’s decision refusing to extend the decision review period. The Tribunal determined that the client’s requests were admissible after concluding that Ms. Smith had been diligent throughout her medical and legal process and that she believed in good faith that her SAAQ file had been closed as a result of the RRQ’s decision to deem her disabled.

null
F.S. v. Retraite Québec, 2017 QCTAQ 10966

In this case, our client appealed a decision made by Retraite Québec refusing to recognize her as disabled. The evidence indicated that she had followed the treatments prescribed by her doctors, including a program for her fibromyalgia, and that she had consulted doctors specializing in pain management. The Tribunal determined that the balance of probabilities demonstrated that our client’s fibromyalgia satisfied the legal criteria for serious illness and her disability status was prolonged.
