What is the test for determining the determination of a plaintiff's costs in a personal injury case?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Chrusz v. MacIvor, 2008 CanLII 66138 (ON SC):

The Ontario Court of Appeal in Boucher v. Public Accountants Council For The Province of Ontario[3] stated that the fixing of costs does not begin or end with the calculation of hours multiplied by rates. The overall objective is to fix an amount that is fair and reasonable for the unsuccessful party to pay in the particular circumstances of the case rather than an amount fixed by the actual costs incurred by the successful party.
