British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Meghji v. British Columbia (Ministry of Transportation and Highways), 2014 BCCA 105 (CanLII):

The trial judge must proceed from correct principles in assessing damages, but findings of fact in relation to hypothetical events, such as job prospects, are entitled to deference and are reviewable only where there is palpable and overriding error: see, for example, Gregory v. Insurance Corporation of British Columbia, 2011 BCCA 144, 17 B.C.L.R. (5th) 101.
