Injury Lawyer Works With

Whiplash

Different activities can cause whiplash including motor vehicle accidents. In addition to that, a person's vulnerability to this type of personal injury varies with age, physical fitness, and any number of other health related factors.

Brain Injury

Many traumatic brain injuries are caused by car accidents, falls, sports injuries and assaults. Usually, a brain injury causes loss of consciousness for anywhere from a few minutes to days, weeks or months. In case if the loss of consciousness is short, return to full or nearly full function is likely.

Spinal Cord Injury

Most spinal cord injuries are the result of trauma to the vertebral column. Also, these injuries can affect the spinal cord’s ability to send and receive messages from the brain to the body systems that control sensory, motor, and autonomic function below the level of injury.

Injury Lawyer Areas of Expertise 

Car Accidents

The most common reasons of car crashes are: rear-ending the car in front of you; not yielding the right of way; impaired driving; distracted driving; improper lane changes; driving too fast or running off the road.

Our goal is to guide you through the steps in your personal injury claim. And, as a result, make sure you get the compensation you deserve.

Motorcycle Accidents

Even if you are not seriously injured, a motorcycle accident can be a traumatic event. Statistically, speed is a leading factor and motorcycle accident victims sustain greater injuries.

Bicycle Accidents

Facing the reality about cycling, it must be said that it is inherently risky. Basically, bicycles are light weight, fast moving, almost silent and invisible vehicles. Increasing number of cyclists causes the same trend in a number of bicycle accidents.

Pedestrian Accidents

According to BC MVA section 119, a pedestrian is a person afoot, or an invalid or child in a wheelchair or carriage. The law is based on the vulnerability of all ‘non-drivers’ . However, the law is also clear that pedestrians are also obliged to watch out for themselves. This is especially so where they are “jaywalking”.

Hit and Run Accidents

ICBC is responsible for payment of claims caused by the negligent actions of an identifiable motorist. Also, The Canadian Criminal Code states that a person who is involved in a car accident with another person, and tries to escape liability by failing to stop and give a correct name and address, commits a serious offence.
