In a motor vehicle accident case, in what circumstances will a plaintiff not be liable for failing to warn the driver of the vehicle that there is no evidence that such warnings would have prevented the accident?

Alberta, Canada


The following excerpt is from Baker v. Suzuki Motors Co., 1993 CanLII 7293 (AB QB):

Justice Finch in Stiles v. Beckett, supra, at p. 30 declined to hold the manufacturer liable because of the absence of evidence that such warnings would have prevented the accident. I make a similar finding here.
