Scott Stanley successfully defended an appeal by the Defendants who were found liable for failing to correctly place warning signs in a construction zone. The Defendants tried to argue that a legal doctrine protected road maintenance contractors such that they cannot be held legally responsible if the driver is partially at fault for causing the accident. The Court refused this argument and accepted Scott’s submission that the presence of some degree of fault by a driver does not prevent a contractor from also being at fault if the roads are poorly maintained. The Court dismissed the Defendants appeal. This is considered one of the leading cases in British Columbia on the doctrine of ordinary care.
