Our Cost of Future Care Injury Lawyers understand that in the most serious of cases the largest portion of an ICBC personal injury settlement is the cost of future care. In today’s blog, ICBC injury lawyer Spencer MacLean explains just exactly what our Cost of Future Care Injury Lawyers focus on to ensure an injured victim is looked after for the rest of their life in a style that they deserve.

Our Cost of Future Care Injury Lawyers focus on getting injured Vancouver and Surrey personal injury victims full compensation for future care that reflects a standard of care equivalent to the lifestyle which a claimant was enjoying pre-accident. Our Vancouver future care cost lawyers and Surrey costs of future care team will throughly map out the plan and costs for a successful post accident lifestyle.

Our current Chief Justice of The Supreme Court of Canada Madam Justice McLachlin in the 1985 BCSC decision of Milina v. Bartsch that:

“The primary emphasis in assessing damages for a serious injury is provision of adequate future care. The award for future care is based on what is reasonably necessary to promote the mental and physical health of the Plaintiff.”

Cost of Future Care Injury Lawyers Explain The Test

And in the leading catastrophic personal injury damages award case of In the 1978 case of Andrews v Grand & Toy Alberta Ltd., Mr. Justice Dickson confirmed the following:

“Money is a barren substitute for health and personal happiness, but to the extent, within reason, that money can be used to sustain or prove the mental or physical health of the person injured, it may properly form part of the claim there is no duty to mitigate, in the sense of being forced to except less than real loss. There is a duty to be reasonable. There cannot be “perfect” or “complete” compensation. An award must be moderate, and fair to both parties. Clearly, compensation must not be determined on the basis of sympathy, or compassion for the plight of the injured person. What is being sough is compensation, not retribution. But, in a case like present, where both Courts have factored a home environment, reasonable means reasonableness in what is to be provided in that home environment. It does not mean that Andrews must languish in an institution which on all evidence is inappropriate for him Justice requires something better.”

In catastrophic ICBC personal injury cases, a properly laid out “Life Care Plan” also known as a “Future Care Cost Report” forms a critical part of a compelling mediation and trial strategy regarding the victim’s cost of future care.
