What is the range of future care costs for a plaintiff who was injured in a motor vehicle accident?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Waters (Guardian of) v. Baird, 1997 CanLII 2119 (BC SC):

This figure allows for the fact that the plaintiff's vascular condition and heart condition would have shortened his working life. His inability to work from the present to the age of 62 is entirely due to the accident, so the 20% reduction based on Athey v. Leonati (supra) does not apply to this head of damages. 4. Future Care
