Automobile Insurance: Beyond the New Brunswick Border
One of the fundamental principles of tort law requires a wrongdoer to compensate an injured party for losses caused by wrongful conduct. Traditionally, tort law has operated to transfer the burden of loss from the innocent injured party to the party responsible for causing the harm. In the context of automobile insurance, as in other areas, this principle has been compromised. Canadian Provinces have adopted automobile legislation rules that, to varying degrees, limit tort rights for victims of automobile accidents.
