The term “accident” implies an unfortunate, unforeseen event; however, the majority of these events occur because someone was negligent and did not act with a degree of care that others would under the same circumstances.

Pursuing Your Accident Claim

There are many circumstances that can lead to injury-causing accidents, but most of them share a common factor: negligence. Claims based upon negligence require you to establish four essential elements, which are:

  • The responsible party had a legal duty to exercise reasonable caution in interacting with others;
  • The individual failed to comply with this obligation;
  • The breach of legal duty caused the accident in which you were injured; and,
  • You suffered losses in the form of economic damages and/or injuries.

While not an official element of a claim for negligence, there is one technical requirement that may impact your rights. British Columbia’s Limitation Act imposes a time restriction for initiating litigation in court against the party responsible for your injuries. If you do not sue within two years after the date of the accident, you are forever barred from seeking compensation for your injuries. If a municipality is involved, you must also give notice within two months of the accident or your claim could be barred.

Damages in Accident Claims

If successful in establishing all facts necessary to prove negligence, you can recover compensation in the form of damages. The legal concept of damages refers to the losses you suffer due to the different ways your injuries affect your life. Your losses are categorized into two groups:

Economic Damages

These are the losses you suffer that can be determined by documentation. They include lost wages, as well as such medical expenses as:

Non-Economic Damages

This category includes losses that are more indeterminate, but which certain have an impact on your life. Examples of non-economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering;
  • Emotional anguish;
  • Decreased enjoyment of life, such as where you cannot participate in your favorite activities and/or lose independence due to medical issues;
  • Losses based upon how your injuries affect personal relationships with your spouse, children, and other loved ones; and,
  • Other types of damages that depend on the circumstances in your case.
