Is there any case law where a plaintiff has been awarded damages for personal injury damages in a motor vehicle accident?

Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada


The following excerpt is from Canada (Attorney General) v. Anderson, 2011 NLCA 82 (CanLII):

The plaintiff agrees that to date, in this jurisdiction, an award under this claim has only been given in fatal accident cases. However, the plaintiff submits that the decision in Ordon Estate v. Grail ( 1998), 166 D.L.R. ( 4th) 193 (S.C.C.) has fundamentally altered this area of the law by mandating non-pecuniary awards of damages, in both death cases and personal injury cases.
