Loss of Marriageability

In relatively few cases there may be a claim for the inability to get married. This is in a situation where the injuries are catastrophic and make the Plaintiff less likely to be able to find someone that is prepared to spend a lifelong being there caregiver and wife or husband.

The theory of this head of damage is that if an individual is unable to get married then the cost savings of having another individual in the household are lost. If this type of claim applies to you, you will need an economist to calculate the loss because this is a very complicated calculation. You will also need a lawyer to pursue the claim because ICBC most often resists this sort of claim with vigor.
