Civil Resolution Tribunal jurisdiction of motor vehicle injury disputes

From the Civil Resolution Tribunal:

On April 8, 2021 the BC Court of Appeal temporarily suspended an earlier BC Supreme Court ruling that parts of the CRT’s jurisdiction over motor vehicle injury disputes were unconstitutional. You can read more about the original ruling here.

People with disputes involving a minor injury determination and/or a claim for liability or damages up to $50,000 can now choose to file their dispute at the CRT or have the court decide these issues instead. Parties who need help choosing between the CRT or court may want to seek legal advice.

The Court of Appeal’s decision is temporary. It is effective from April 8, 2021 until the Court of Appeal releases its final decision on the appeal.
