Erickson v. Bowie

In Fish Cases, Torts on (Updated )

This case involved a 50 year old fish harvester who suffered injuries in a motor vehicle accident that prevented him from returning to work on a fishing vessel. In assessing his claim for both past and future loss of income, the court ruled that the claimant was not limited by his past earnings and made an award based upon the assumption that, but for the accident he would have purchased a black cod licence with his brother and earned income from that licence.
