Can a plaintiff who was injured in a motor vehicle accident be compensated for her emotional and psychological injuries?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Stephenson v. Lee, 2013 BCSC 1617 (CanLII):

I accept that the plaintiff was injured in the motor vehicle accident to a degree that is unusual, but that is compensable on the basis that she was rather vulnerable emotionally and psychologically in the sense referred to in Butler v. Blaylock.
