Does a plaintiff have to pay the costs of preparing a Bill of Costs and costs submission in a personal injury case?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from St. Elizabeth Home Society v. Hamilton (City), 2007 CanLII 50115 (ON SC):

Plaintiff’s costs counsel has demanded much from the defendants, the responding detailed information and production come at a cost. To the extent that it is at a reasonable dollar amount, it is the plaintiff who pays, but not the costs of differing accounting systems. I allow the costs of preparing the Bill of Costs and costs submissions on the partial indemnity scale of costs. See Centrum Renovations v. Ditta, [2007] O.J. NO. 1845.
