Agreement Reached in Insurance Case

The province has reached an agreement in the case of a young Nova Scotian woman living in long-term care who received an insurance settlement.

The insurance money was awarded for the young woman’s care after she was permanently disabled in a car crash.

The agreement is the result of ongoing discussion with the woman’s family, legal representatives and Community Services. The details of the agreement are confidential.

“This case has weighed heavily on my mind and the minds of staff,” said Joanne Bernard, Minister of Community Services. “We are pleased to have a settlement, and we’ll continue to partner with the family in caring for their daughter’s long-term needs.”

The department is reviewing policies to provide more clarity for these rare cases so other families don’t have to go through a drawn-out legal process.
