Amy was one of the first in her industry to realize that insurers were improperly deducting HST from the benefit limits of innocent motor vehicle collision victims. She filed the first complaint with the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (“FSCO”), and although that insurer reimbursed our client the funds, other insurers continued to improperly deduct HST. Through Amy’s efforts our firm continued fighting this issue with the insurers which led others to do the same which then spurred OTLA to get involved in the matter. The continued fight on this issue led to OTLA members bringing class action lawsuits against the offending insurers.
