Seth Wheeldon

Before joining Preszler Law, Seth practiced at a prominent, national insurance defence firm for nearly seven years. After defending insurance companies, Seth decided to join Preszler Law to represent injured individuals. Seth appreciates that insurance companies strive to minimize compensation because they view injuries as liabilities. He has intimate knowledge of how insurance companies evaluate, assess and settle injury claims. Seth uses his background and experience to see both sides of the argument, a crucial skill that helps him recover fair compensation for your injury.

 

Many accidents are life changing events. Seth believes that it is important that you have the appropriate advocate that understands the human element of your claim.

 

Seth was recently successful in obtaining a strong judgment in Bucholtz v Zhang, 2020 BCSC 571.  The plaintiff did not miss any time from work, but the court accepted that the plaintiff’s injuries would impact his future earnings.  See the full judgment here:
