The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal overturned the decision of the Queen’s Bench setting aside a settlement of a damage claim for personal injuries sustained in a minor car accident. The Court held that the trial judge erred in concluding that the Insurer (“SGI”) misused its position of power in an unconscionable manner where the Plaintiff had suggested the settlement, the amount was set objectively using an SGI formula, and the Plaintiff declined to discuss the proposed settlement with her mother or anyone else.
