The following excerpt is from Riley v. Ritsco, 2018 BCCA 366 (CanLII):

Citing Barr v. Accurate Transmission and Driveline, 2016 BCSC 2432, the judge ruled that in order to award damages consequent on an early retirement, “the court must find that the injuries sustained by the plaintiff and … the effect upon him made it necessary for him to retire because they prevented him from safely and competently doing his job”.
