Richmond Car Accident Lawyers
No one anticipates that, one day, they will be seriously injured in a motor vehicle collision. Few people are prepared for the overwhelming physical, psychological, and economic repercussions of sustaining severe injuries in a car accident.
Recovering from injuries sustained in car accidents can be a long, isolating, physically challenging, emotionally overwhelming, and expensive journey. For injured car accident victims in Richmond, the road to recovery often involves lengthy periods of hospitalization, invasive surgeries, long-lasting physical rehabilitation programs, many hours of missed work, dramatic adjustments to one’s lifestyle, and exorbitant injury-related expenses.
Our Richmond car accident lawyers believe that no one should be forced to pay for someone else’s negligence. If someone else’s failure to abide by the rules outlined in the province’s Motor Vehicle Act caused a collision in which you were injured before May 1, 2021, you may be entitled to take legal action.
By pursuing a civil claim against the at-fault driver whose negligence behind the wheel caused your collision to occur, our car accident lawyers serving Richmond may be able to help you recover injury-related damages. Depending on the severity of the injuries you have sustained and the impact they have had on your life, these damages could be both economic and non-economic in nature. They might include:
- Legal fees
- Lost wages
- Reduced future earning capabilities
- Medical expenses
- Mileage to and from medical appointments
- Housekeeping services
- Necessary home modifications
- Ambulatory assistive devices
- Medical equipment
- Pain and suffering
- And possibly more
Car accident victims who were injured in collisions that took place after May 1, 2021 now have fewer compensatory options. ICBC, the ubiquitous automotive insurance provider owned by the provincial government, has recently implemented new changes to the way it compensates injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions. The Crown corporation has stripped injured car accident victims of their right to pursue compensation from negligent motorists whose wrongful conduct behind the wheel caused their collisions in the first place. And the insurer has made appealing unfair decisions about ICBC claims nearly impossible. To express your opinions about these changes to our province’s insurance system, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal ICBC’s “enhanced care” insurance model.
