CASE LAW - Billabong Road & Bridge Maintenance v Brook
The case of Billabong Road & Bridge Maintenance v Brook is a B.C. Supreme Court appeal of a conviction that saw both parties found 50% at fault after a single vehicle collision. The provincial court judge found the road maintenance company partly at fault for the collision because it had not sanded the slippery roadway. In turn, Brittany Brook was found partly at fault for not taking reasonable steps to avoid the collision.
The case contains an analysis of the contract between the road maintenance company and the Provincial Government and whether that standard had been met or not.
