The following excerpt is from Binning v Kandola, 2021 BCSC 157 (CanLII):
The Court of Appeal outlined the non-exhaustive factors to be considered when assessing non-pecuniary damages in Stapley v. Hejslet, 2006 BCCA 34 at para. 46. They include the plaintiff’s age, the nature of the injury, the severity and duration of pain, disability, emotional suffering, impairment of life, family, marital and social relationships, physical and mental abilities, the loss of lifestyle, and stoicism, a factor which generally ought not to penalise a plaintiff.
