How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help You?
During your first meeting with one of our Vancouver personal injury attorneys after an automobile accident or injury, we will first want to hear about what happened, and we may collect information from you. The length of the initial interview can vary depending on the circumstances that led to your injuries. In rather straightforward cases like car accidents, the first meeting probably won't take very long, especially if you come prepared.
As you tell us about your accident, our attorneys may ask questions about it. While some of these questions may be difficult to hear, let alone answer, we need to know the answers in order to help you find the best solution for your case.
We will collect information relating to your accident or injury, including facts about your medical treatment, others involved in the accident, potential witnesses, and more. We will likely also discuss practical aspects of your case such as a representation agreement, different types of legal fees, and the kinds of costs you can expect in your case.
We have more than two decades of experience handling various personal injury cases, including:
- Insurance claims: Our firm has represented clients in cases where they have been injured and need immediate medical attention. We are aggressive litigators and help ensure that the proper insurance claim is dispensed to cover the medical treatment and compensation for our clients.
- Car accidents: We have handled various car accident cases and semi-truck crashes resulting in injuries such as soft tissue injuries, whiplash, and back pain. Our Vancouver motorcycle accident lawyers have experience representing accidents involving motorcycles and other vehicles, and we work hard to ensure that they are properly compensated for their injuries.
- Child sexual abuse: Our firm has experience representing children and their families in cases where the child has been molested at a school, church, or an after-school activity. We have successfully sued establishments and organizations where these crimes were committed and ensured proper compensation for the damage inflicted upon the child.
- Dog bites: We have defended the rights of individuals who have suffered dog bites from a neighbor’s or other individual's dog, and have ensured proper medical coverage and compensation for the injuries sustained from the unlawful attack.
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?

There are some exceptions that can change this three-year time period so it’s important to speak to an attorney about your case as soon as possible. Our firm offers free, no-obligation consultations so you have nothing to lose by contacting our firm today.
