16-001031 v Aviva Insurance Canada, 2017 CanLII 15837 (ON LAT)
Adjudicator: Jeanie Theoharis
Outcome: Mr. Kapoor was successful in litigating on behalf of the Applicant for entitlement of costs associated with the chiropractic services and assistive devices in dispute, as the nature of the Applicant’s post-accident impairments render the treatment plan reasonable and necessary.
16-001031 v. Aviva Insurance Canada, 2017 CanLII 43880 (ON LAT)
Adjudicator: Linda P. Lamoureux
Outcome: The Respondent’s request for a Reconsideration of a decision, in which the Tribunal determined that the Applicant was compliant with Rule 9.2 of the LAT Rules of Practice and Procedure with regards to filing his submissions, and that the disputed treatment plan for assistive devices was reasonable and necessary, was denied. Regardless of how the date of a “Hearing” is defined, the Applicant filed his submissions by the date ordered at case conference and was thus compliant of Rule 9.2. Further, the Tribunal, as trier of fact, “was entitled to weigh the parties’ evidence as it saw fit”, and reweighing the evidence is beyond the scope of a request for Reconsideration.
16-000766 v Meloche Monnex Financial Services Inc., 2016 CanLII 96162 (ON LAT)
Adjudicator: Nicole Treksler
Outcome: The Applicant is entitled to the TMJ Assessment.
Rationale: Mr. Kapoor was successful in litigating on behalf of the Applicant for entitlement of costs associated with the TMJ assessment in dispute, as the nature of the Applicant’s post-accident impairments render the treatment plan reasonable and necessary.
16-001243 v Aviva Insurance, 2016 CanLII 104569 (ON LAT)
Adjudicator: Joseph Nemet
Outcome: The Respondent is not entitled to costs, as the Applicant was not found to have acted “unreasonably, frivolously, vexatiously, or in bad faith” by withdrawing their application after case conference.
