Across the country, insurers and defence counsel are facing an increase in claims from self-represented litigants. These cases face a number of different hurdles and need to be handled carefully and satisfy the principles recently endorsed by the Supreme Court of Canada in Pintea v. Johns.
In this webinar, representatives from RMC firms in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC will discuss:
- The rights of self-represented litigants and the requirement of insurers and defence counsel as set out in the Canadian Judicial Council’s Statement of Principles on Self-represented Litigants and Accused Persons
- How case law from each province affects claims by self-represented litigants
- Strategies for insurers when dealing with a claim from a self-represented litigant
