This table shows the status of the motor vehicle injury disputes affected by the BC Supreme Court’s March 2, 2021 decision. On April 8, 2021, the BC Court of Appeal issued a stay of proceedings, which allowed parties to choose whether to file their claim in court or with the CRT. Parties were advised of this and asked to let the CRT know their decision, and this data is reflected in the table.
