Personal Injury Damages, 2007-2011 Cumulative Edition
The practice of assessing non-pecuniary damages is an exercise of familiarity with precedents and the numerous factors considered by the court in arriving at that figure for that particular plaintiff.
Personal Injury Damages will simplify this delicate balancing act, while providing you with current information you need in one convenient and portable reference guide.
Along with the 2001-2006 Cumulative Edition and with future cases captured in Annual Supplements*, this 2007-2011 Cumulative Edition includes all cases reported from January 2007 through December 2011, and will serve as your primary pointof
reference in researching personal injury damages.
Cases are drawn from LexisNexis® Quicklaw® database and the authors' popular NetLetter™, Carlson Personal Injury Quantum of Damages. The case indexes are organized:
1) By province/territory in which they were decided and then within each jurisdiction by quantum.
Each case is listed in chart form, with these significant details:
- Case, citation and court
- Date of loss and name of judge
- Gender, age and occupation
- Injury and duration
- Non-pecuniary damages
- Damages issues considered by the court
Each case summary also includes both the official law report citation and the Quicklaw® citation-making it easy to find the full-text decision.
2) By the nature of the injury with cross-references to the province/territory index.
Personal Injury Damages is the only book you'll need to reach early settlement of claims or prepare for assessment of damages at trial. You'll also find a useful discussion of factors that affect the assessment of damages.
