Compensation for Non-Pecuniary Loss (1984)

In 1978, in a series of cases, the Supreme Court of Canada redefined the principles to be applied when assessing compensation in personal injury actions for pain, suffering, and loss of amenities. This project examines the revised approach adopted by the courts in subsequent claims for non-pecuniary losses.
