What are the precedents for a plaintiff in a personal injury case?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Lo v Vos, 2019 BCSC 1306 (CanLII):

In general, I find the precedents cited by the plaintiff to be most analogous to the circumstances of the present case, with the exception of Felix v. Hearne which was a case involving more significant impairment and injury. In that case, the plaintiff was injured in a roll-over car accident that killed her boyfriend. The plaintiff’s physical injuries included cartilage damage to her wrist that was not fixed by surgery and which prevented the plaintiff from continuing her employment as a court reporter. The plaintiff also suffered from a concussion, leading to tinnitus, shoulder and ankle injuries. This was in addition to the plaintiff’s ongoing symptoms of PTSD and major depression.
