Recovering compensation after an accident can be an intimidating process. Not only may you not be sure of against whom you should file an action, you may have questions about how the process works, your rights under the law, and how much your case is worth. Other than with cases for ICBC’s no-fault benefits, you will need to prove the following in order to recover compensation for your injuries:

  • Duty of care: It is important to establish that the person against whom you are filing an action owed you a duty of care, such as the duty to maintain their property in a safe condition or operate their vehicle in a reasonably safe manner;
  • Breach of duty of care: The failure to act with a reasonable duty of care is called negligence, and negligence is the heart of an accident claim;
  • Causation: Not only must you prove that the party breached the duty of care owed to you, but that this breach was the proximate cause of your accident; and
  • Damages: Finally, you must prove that you actually suffered damages as a result of the accident, such as monetary losses or physical pain and suffering.

Recovering Your Full Damages Award

When you hire the accident lawyers in Burnaby at the Preszler , we will work diligently to improve your chances of recovering your full damages award. You deserve to be compensated for all of the losses you have suffered, including but not limited to:

  • Property damage costs;
  • Medical expenses;
  • Future medical expenses and costs of rehabilitation, physical therapy, etc.;
  • Lost wages and future lost earnings and benefits;
  • Loss of enjoyment of life;
  • Pain and suffering; and
  • Diminished value of relationships with others.

In order to get you the settlement you deserve, our lawyers will investigate your accident and identify all potentially liable parties, file your claim on your behalf, hire experts necessary to build your case and offer evidence, negotiate with insurance adjusters, and be prepared to take your case to court if need be.

You Must Act Quickly after Being Involved in a Serious Accident

It is important that you act quickly if you are involved in a serious accident in Burnaby that warrants an injury claim. Not only is filing a claim with ICBC or another insurance company essential as soon as possible (if you fail to do so, your claim may be denied), but there is also a statute of limitations in place that limits the amount of time that you have to pursue a civil action. If you wait too long to file a claim, you may be barred indefinitely from seeking compensation. There is also a two month notice period for claims against a municipality.
