Is there any case law where a plaintiff was unable to prosecute because of their financial disadvantage?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Jackson v. Yusishen, 2014 BCSC 406 (CanLII):

Counsel for the defendant referred to Minhas v. Sartor, 2014 BCSC 47, where the court had noted that insurer had not used its financial strength to take unfair advantage or that the plaintiff was unable by reason of relative financial disadvantage to prosecute his claim. Certainly that statement applies here. The plaintiff prosecuted the case aggressively supported by a significant volume of expert evidence and two able counsel assisting him.
