The following excerpt is from Schaffner v Greenbank, 2021 BCSC 1603 (CanLII):
Where a plaintiff suffers an injury that would make a reasonable person in the plaintiff’s circumstances unable to perform usual and necessary household work, a pecuniary damages award may be appropriate. Where the loss is more in keeping with a loss of amenities, or increased pain and suffering, the loss may be more appropriately addressed as part of a non-pecuniary damages award: Quigley v. Cymbalisty, 2021 BCCA 33 at para 72.
