We handle car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall cases, product liability cases, and any other case where someone else’s negligence has resulted in an accident of any kind.

How do I know I’ve got a strong personal injury case?
The only way to know for sure is to consult with a qualified personal injury lawyer. We’ll go over all of the facts of your case. We’ll then help you decide whether the case is worth pursuing.
Minor injuries can often be handled with the insurance company without resulting to a lawyer. We might also decline a case where it’s clear that your own degree of contributory negligence is likely to wipe out most of your settlement.
If you’re not sure, just call! We offer a free, no-obligation consultation. You don’t have to worry about coming up with a retainer or an hourly rate. We work on contingency, which means you don’t pay until we’ve successfully negotiated a settlement on your behalf, or have won your case in court.
What constitutes pain and suffering?

In BC there are some limits on pain and suffering awards. These awards are capped at $5500 for minor injuries like whiplash, TMJ, and road rash. There is no limit for pain and suffering awards on major injuries.
How do I know I’ve got a good personal injury case?
The only way to know for sure is to consult with a personal injury lawyer. Bring them all the facts of your case and make sure there aren’t any surprises. Do your best to secure a lawyer early, before you deal with any insurance company. This will strengthen your case considerably.
