Surrey man gets $1.3 M after crash

Judge determined Randy Rajinder Bains suffered permanent spinal injury

A Surrey man has been awarded almost $1.3 million after a car accident that left him with spinal injuries.

On June 11, 2008, Randy Rajinder Bains, 26 at the time, collided with a vehicle being driven by Jasvir Singh Brar at the corner of 92 Avenue and 132 Street.

Bains was driving to his job as a machinist at the time, and hasn’t worked since, according court documents made public last Friday (Oct. 4).

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Bruce Cohen found that Bains suffers from permanent spinal injury and chronic pain.

Cohen determined that Bains was entitled to $1.29 million in damages to cover loss of wages, loss of future income, cost of future care and other damages.
