CASE LAW - McCormick v Plambeck

BC Courts Coat of ArmsThis case looks at host liability for a crash on Saltspring Island following a party at the home of Stephen and Lidia Pearson. Ryan Plambeck drove away from the party, left the roadway and crashed into the woods beside the road. He was killed and Calder McCormick, a passenger in the vehicle was seriously injured.

This judgment explores the subject of host liability. Even though Mr. and Mrs. Pearson were ultimately found not to be liable for the collision, it is worth reading this to understand what you need to do in order to protect everyone involved in an event where intoxicants of any sort are consumed.
