Car Accident Lawyer in Surrey

If you or a loved one suffered serious or fatal injuries in a car accident in Surrey, you might be entitled to accident benefits and other forms of compensation for your damages and losses.

Since ICBC handles car insurance for all British Columbians, you should file your initial claim with ICBC. In most cases, ICBC will offer to settle your claim quickly. While it may be tempting to accept their offer, you would be wise to have a qualified car accident lawyer review the details of the settlement first. Once you agree to a settlement offer, you are barred from making any future claims for benefits.

An experienced Surrey car accident lawyer at the Preszler Injury Lawyers can evaluate your case at no cost and offer their opinion on the estimated value of your claim. Having an estimated value will allow you to make informed decisions about your claim. Call us today at 1-844-373-8202 to request a free consultation.

Should I handle my car accident claim on my own?

If you suffered serious injuries in your crash, it is best to have a Surrey car accident lawyer handle your claim. The process of filing and negotiating an ICBC claim is often stressful and complicated, and may interfere with your recovery. A Surrey car accident lawyer at the Preszler Injury Lawyers can:

  • Work to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries, and are not taken advantage of by the ICBC adjuster.
  • Provide you with information and resources to better understand the claims process, and what you can expect, as well as your obligations to ICBC.
  • Handle all communications with ICBC, including ensuring you do not share any information that might hurt your claim.

  • Someone with experience in and out of the courtroom.
  • Someone you get along with and who relates to you.

How can I calculate what my car accident claim is worth?

Contrary to popular belief, there is no precise formula for calculating the value of someone’s injury claim. Every situation is unique, and different factors can affect the value of an accident victim’s claim, such as who was at-fault, the extent of the injuries, and the impact on employment.

ICBC uses injury settlement guidelines to assess the pain and suffering damages associated with your injuries. For example, ICBC offers between $6,500 and $15,000 for whiplash injuries. It is important to note, however, that British Columbia Courts do not follow these guidelines and routinely award damages at five to ten times this amount.
