In Willing v. Ayles, 2009 BCSC 1035, the plaintiff failed to call the general practitioner who had assessed her shortly after the collision and followed the progress of her recovery for the first year following the accident. The plaintiff relied on medical evidence from a family doctor who treated her approximately two years after the accident, and provided no explanation for the failure to call the physician who had first treated her.
