In British Columbia, there are more than 60,000 injury accidents across the province every year, according to the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. If you were involved in one of those accidents in the Langley area, you might benefit from the guidance of a Langley car accident injury lawyer at Preszler Law.
If another person is responsible for an accident, you have the right to pursue a lawsuit against them for monetary damages. To get started, contact a qualified car accident law firm right away.
Part 7 Benefits
After most accidents, you should have access to benefits available through the ICBC. These benefits are available regardless of whether you were at fault or not. The benefits available under Part 7 are insurance benefits that are available thanks to the ICBC insurance policy all drivers must carry. Some of the “no fault” benefits available include:
While Part 7 benefits are an important factor in a car wreck, they may not make you whole financially. To make up for the difference, you are entitled to sue the driver responsible for the accident. A dedicated car accident lawyer from Preszler Law is available to help with that process.
Proving your case against a distracted driver
Distracted drivers have become one of the greatest threats on Langley roadways in recent years. With the proliferation of the mobile phone, the frequency of distracted driving has steadily increased each year. In some cases, the responsible driver will admit that they were on their phone or distracted by something else. However, if a driver that you suspect was using their phone denies it, you still have some options for proving they were distracted at the time of the crash.
One option involves subpoenaing the cell phone data of the defendant. If you believe the other driver was distracted by their phone during the crash despite their denials, you may seek a court order requiring the defendant’s phone provider to hand over their records. If their records show that the defendant was texting or using data to stream while behind the wheel, it will provide powerful evidence to support your case.
No fee unless we collect
Many Langley residents lack the financial resources to pay steep legal fees. At Preszler Law, we believe that the inability to pay up-front legal fees should never prevent an injury victim from pursuing justice. That is why our firm never charges an up-front fee. We only get paid if you get paid. If we are unsuccessful in recovering damages on your behalf, you will not owe us anything.
