The negligence of property owners and/or occupiers can have serious physical, emotional, and financial repercussions for the injured victims. In order to pursue the compensation they deserve, injured victims must be able to provide sufficient, compelling evidence.
Our team knows what questions to ask to put together a solid case and can help with collecting the appropriate evidence, speaking with witnesses, and navigating the legal landscape. Helping people is our number one priority. We’re by your side through every step of the process.
During your free consultation our lawyers will explain how the value of your claim will be decided. They will explain the evidence we can gather to effectively support your claim for monetary recovery.
Each case is different and influenced by a number of things, including the length of your recovery. Regardless of how long it takes, we will be there every step of the way so you never feel alone.
You would be well served to understand your rights from the beginning. Our lawyers can help you deal with the bureaucracy of large insurance companies right from the start.
The Limitation Act in British Columbia sets out the time period that an individual has to file a lawsuit against a defendant for a personal injury. Most cases in BC have a two-year limitation date (starting from the date of the injury), but in some cases, it’s shorter. It’s best you reach out to us as soon as possible if you have questions.
Every case is different. With Hammerco, you may qualify for our contingency model arrangement, which means you do not have to pay a legal fee until your claim is resolved satisfactorily.
On May 1, 2021 ICBC enacted a new no-fault insurance model. Under this new model individuals involved in car accidents in British Columbia are no longer able to sue for damages if they are injured, even if they are not at fault. The severity of injuries does not impact your ability to sue.
Individuals injured in accidents after May 1, 2021 may instead be entitled to various treatment, rehabilitation and wage loss benefits in amounts pre-determined by ICBC. If there is a dispute about who is entitled or over the amount of benefits, it will be dealt with by an ombudsman, an ICBC fairness officer, or the Civil Resolution Tribunal – not the courts.
