British Columbia, Canada


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

There are two possible approaches to loss of future earning capacity: the “earnings approach” and the “capital asset approach”. Both approaches are correct and will be more or less appropriate depending on whether the loss in question can be quantified in a measurable way: Perren v. Lalari, 2010 BCCA 140 at para. 12.
