What is the test for identifying other parties at the scene of a collision?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Goncalves v. Doe, 2010 BCSC 1241 (CanLII):

The requirement to make all reasonable efforts is not limited to the immediate aftermath of the collision. To satisfy this test, the plaintiff must have made all reasonable efforts at the scene of the collision to identify the other parties. The plaintiff must also have made all reasonable efforts to identify the other parties in the days and, possibly weeks, that followed the collision: Slezak v. ICBC, 2003 BCSC 1679, at para. 42.
