ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – A St. John’s, N.L., lawyer is looking at the possibility of a class-action lawsuit for victims of moose-car collisions in the province.
Ches Crosbie has been helping crash victims obtain financial compensation for years.
He says government could be held accountable for introducing moose to the province in 1912.
He says if the hazard that the huge animals pose to traffic was foreseeable 100 years ago, government could be held liable for negligence.
Crosbie says the purpose of the class action would be compensation for the injured and measures to reduce or prevent future accidents.
