Is there any case law where a plaintiff has been successful in an assessment where the evidence is imprecision?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Spoor v. Nicholls, 1999 CanLII 6351 (BC SC):

Downs J. referred to Samuel v. Peric, [1992] B.C.J. No. 2466, Vancouver No. F892019. In Samuel, Holmes J. said: "The plaintiffs have plainly suffered a loss and the imprecision of the evidence ought not to prevent an assessment from being made."
