Helping you deal with personal injury
In general, we see our role as assisting you repair a lost relationship with the world after suffering a personal injury. Pain is a barrier to that relationship, limiting you from participating boundlessly in life, whether the pain is physical, mental, or emotional. It makes one sit back and watch while others enjoy. It can require one to have to rest at the end of the day instead of enjoying the things you want to do. Pain can make it harder to get up in the morning. It can result in needing accommodation or more breaks at work. It can diminish motivation. It can make one turn to medication or endless therapy to support one’s participation in life. It limits one’s ability to manipulate the environment to meet one’s own needs and desires.
While our main job in personal injury law is to obtain compensation for victims of injuries, it can be much broader. With the tools available to us in the litigation process, we strive to get you the diagnosis you seek to best understand your predicament and how to excel despite it, which you might not otherwise get from the medical system, whether it be a medical diagnosis or functional capacity evaluation or recommendations for treatment or workplace accommodation. It can be the starting point for career exploration. It can be towards life and financial planning.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Most of our cases of personal injury law relate to motor vehicle accidents. It doesn’t matter who was at fault for the accident. If you were injured as a result of an accident, you should get the compensation you need to recover effectively. After all, that’s what insurance is for. So it’s important to contact us even if you think the accident was your fault. You should get in touch even before you call ICBC. And don’t forget, that initial discussion is completely free of charge.
In some cases, motor vehicle accidents can lead to lifelong medical issues. Being compensated properly can mean the difference between medical care that will let you get back to living, including such things as renovations to your home to accommodate new health issues, or struggling through without any of that future support. Which would you prefer?
We have helped people who have witnessed a death while involved in a motor vehicle accident. Many of these clients are hesitant to pursue a claim due to overwhelming feels of guilt, grief and trauma from the accident. We remind you that the settlement proceeds are not paid by those causing the accident, but by ICBC or other insurance company. As a result, individuals are usually not personally affected by the claim. Its not just your life that’s at stake, but also your family, especially if your injury is causing wage loss and an inability to work or provide for your family. A fair settlement is essential to get your life back on track.
