In Reasons for Judgment rendered November 27, 2014, Mr. Justice Skolrood of the New Westminster BC Supreme Court awarded $201,763.00 in total damages resulting from a July 16, 2009 motor vehicle accident.
Mr. Benson, client of LK Law, was involved in a crash at the intersection of 204th Street and Fraser Highway in Langley, BC. He was 57 years old at the time of trial and worked as a metal fabricator. The trial was conducted by Paul Kent-Snowsell of LK Law.
He was awarded $110,000 for pain and suffering. His injuries consisted of complex soft-tissue pain with impairment on his cognitive and psychiatric functioning.
He was awarded $5,770 for past income loss and $76,500 for future income loss.
Cost of future care award was $17,953 to obtain future medical treatments.
Loss of housekeeping capacity was evaluated at $5,000 and out of pocket expenses of $3,040.
Mr. Benson's pain and suffering award, and income loss awards were reduced by 15% for failing to follow some of the recommendations made by his physicians (see previous blog post on this issue for more information about your "duty to mitigate your losses").
