Simpson Thomas Wins Substantial Victory On Costs For Plaintiffs

For those who have followed Loft v. Nat, we are very pleased to advise that we were ultimately successful in our fight to have costs awarded to the plaintiff. Following a second hearing in the Court of Appeal, the appellate court released a decision allowing our appeal and holding that the denial of costs to the plaintiff was an error. What this case effectively stands for is that even if a claimant receives far less than they are arguing for at trial, they should generally speaking receive their full costs from ICBC. This case has already become a precedent for many subsequent costs decisions in the BC Courts.
