Car Accident Lawyer in Kelowna

When accidents occur, the damage they cause can be severe. In addition to property damage, you are likely to suffer injuries that may be serious and even life threatening. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we can advise you on how to get the compensation you need in these situations. Our Kelowna accident lawyers know that rather than being random occurrences, so called ‘accidents’ are often the result of negligent and reckless conduct on the part of others.

Common Accidents for Which Others May be Held Responsible

According to the BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit, more than 400,000 people in Kelowna and throughout British Columbia suffer accidental, unintentional injuries each year. Sadly, roughly 90% could have been prevented. Accidental injuries often occur due to the negligent actions of others. Common examples include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents due to dangerous driving behaviors such as speeding, running traffic signals, and driving distracted or while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or medications.
  • Slips, trips, and falls due to the negligence of property owners in allowing wet floors, uneven walkways, poor lighting, cluttered aisles, and other dangerous conditions to exist.
  • Being struck by or against an object such as at sports and recreational event or in stores due to loose fixtures or improperly stocked shelves.
  • Injuries due to dangerous products, due to a lack of instructions and safety features, or due to manufacturing defects.

When these so-called accidents occur, Preszler Injury Lawyers is here to help you get the compensation you need to recover. Our Kelowna accident lawyers will investigate your case, to help determine exactly how and why your accident happened and who can be held responsible.

Holding Responsible Parties Accountable for Accidental Injuries

Negligence is a legal term frequently used in cases involving accidents and injuries. It often involves the reckless actions of people that end up causing injuries to others, such as a drunk driver or manufacturer who knowingly ships products that are dangerous or defective. It can also involve the failure to take reasonable actions that could have prevented accidents and injuries, such as a shop owner who fails to fix a broken sidewalk or to warn customers that the condition exists. Under British Columbia law, the Negligence Act allows these people to be held liable for damages that result. Depending on the circumstances, common types of compensation you may be entitled to include:

Known as non-pecuniary damages, compensation for pain and suffering takes into consideration any disfigurement or disabilities you suffer, the impact your injuries have on your quality of life, and the effect it has on you and your other family members. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, our Kelowna accident lawyers review every aspect of your case, to help ensure you get the maximum amount you are entitled to in your claim.

How Our Kelowna Accident Lawyers Assist You

Whether you are filing a claim with the Insurance Company of British Columbia (ICBC) against a property owner or manager, or with your own insurance company, you need an experienced Kelowna accident lawyer on your case. You can depend on our legal training, knowledge, and expertise in negotiating with insurance companies and in gathering the evidence needed to support your claim.

Most people fail to consider that insurers operate as a business. Paying out claims costs them and their shareholders money, so if they can find a reason to deny or dispute yours, they generally will. Ways in which Preszler Injury Lawyers defends you in accident claims include:

  • Gathering evidence such as accident reports, statements from witnesses, and videotape recordings to show how your injuries occured;
  • Obtaining medical records and statements from your medical providers regarding your condition;
  • Collecting receipts, statements, and pay stubs to show your financial losses;
  • Sending you to medical experts and other experts for assessments;
  • Getting statements from friends and family members, regarding the impact your accident and injuries have on other areas of your life.
