Surrey Personal Injury Lawyer

Car accidents, dog bites, falls, surgical errors, and other unforeseeable accidents can happen to anyone. When they do, it helps to have a knowledgeable lawyer on your side to make sure your best interests are represented. Insurers are notorious for making low-ball offers to settle as quickly and quietly as possible. Preszler Law Firm serves Surrey B.C. residents with friendly, compassionate legal services.

How to Find A Personal Injury Law Firm 

Many clients come to us from a personal referral – a friend, a family member, or a coworker who has required the service of a personal injury law firm after a serious car accident or a slip-and-fall in the past. Local lawyers who are familiar with the court clerks, judges, and defense counsel have an advantage over an unknown outsider.

You can cross-reference a lawyer offering to represent your case with the Law Society of BC website to confirm he or she is a member in good standing, with no history of disciplinary proceedings.

What Does A Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

There is no downside in working with a personal injury lawyer. Successful law firms are able to offer free consultations and contingency-based representation, meaning that they only receive payment for their services in the event of a successful resolution.

Meeting with a Lawyer

At your first meeting with a lawyer, you’ll need to provide some basic information:

  • Your name, address, phone number, email, date of birth, social insurance number, personal health number
  • Employer name, your position, your salary, extended benefits, education history
  • Accident date, time, description, first responder/witness contact information, statements, ICBC claim number
  • List of injuries sustained, where/how you were treated, list of health providers, referrals
  • List of pre-existing health conditions, prior injuries, or past accidents

Questions to Ask A Personal Injury Lawyer

The lawyer is not only there to find out more about your case, but to answer your questions as well. Frequently asked questions include:

  • How long have you practiced law?
  • Have you handled many cases like mine?
  • What is your caseload? Do you have the time and resources to take a new case?
  • How long do you think it will take to resolve my case?
  • What kind of compensation can I expect?
  • How do I pay my bills while waiting for my case to resolve?
  • Do you provide referrals to medical care practitioners or rehabilitation centers?
  • Are there any past clients I can contact for reference?

Ultimately, you should feel a rapport with the lawyer you choose to represent your personal injury matter.
