Motor Vehicle Accidents and Personal Injury Claims
Most personal injury claims arise out of motor vehicle accidents and involve ICBC or people insured by ICBC, though our lawyers also help people with all other types of personal injury claims. If you have been injured in a car accident, we can help. We will sit down with you on a no-obligation basis and take the time to listen to you carefully about how you have been affected by your injuries. If you are unable to leave the hospital or your home because of your injuries, we will come to see you. We will discuss with you the claims process and how we can relieve you of the burden of dealing with insurance companies. We will initiate a claim for your losses with ICBC and guide you through the recovery process. When the time is right, we will discuss with you how best to settle your claim with ICBC, and how best to obtain fair compensation for your injuries.
Jones Emery’s lawyers handle all manner of personal injury claims, including slip and fall accidents, occupier’s liability, social host or commercial liquor liability, medical malpractice, or assault cases. We will work with you to ensure that you get the compensation you are legally entitled to. Some examples of the types of harms we have represented clients on include:
• Brain and head injuries;
• Soft tissue injuries;
• Broken bones;
• Loss of limb;
• Paraplegia or quadriplegia;
• Spinal cord injuries;
• Whiplash and ligament damage;
• Wrongful death;
• Chronic pain and fibromyalgia; and
• Psychological injuries, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
We have a great deal of experience in settling claims, including the use of mediation—a process where you get a chance to speak and be heard in a non-adversarial setting. Our lawyers will work on contingency so you don’t see a fee until your claim has been settled, and we don’t get paid unless you do. If you would like to know more about how we can help you, please call us.
We look forward to an opportunity to meet with you to discuss how we can help you. Call or email us to arrange for your free initial consultation.
