In a lawsuit for persoal injury damages, the insurance company defending refused to even attempt to discuss settlement, even when asked twice by the plaintiff to engage in discussions.

This was in breach of their statutory obligation under the Insurance Act.

The Ontario Court of Appeal increased the insurer's cost obligation to the plaintiff by $40,000 to reflect their decision to breach their statutory obligations.
