What is the relevant period of time between the date of the Accident and the time of trial?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Zawadzki v. Calimoso, 2011 BCSC 45 (CanLII):

With this backdrop, there are three periods of time from the date of the Accident to trial that are relevant. In the following paragraphs I provide the gross amounts for each of the three periods and leave it to counsel to determine the appropriate net award. If counsel cannot determine the proper net award, as required by Laxdal v. Robbins, 2010 BCCA 565, they may re-appear before me on this issue.
