Personal Injury Lawyer Kelowna


Like most areas, British Columbia has laws that allow the victims of negligence to claim compensation from the liable party. If you suffered injuries due to someone else’s careless or negligent actions, you can file a personal injury claim to cover your accident-related losses.

Your legal options for compensation after a personal injury may vary based on the facts of your accident and injuries. Preszler Injury Lawyers can help you explore these options, and guide you through the process of recovering the money you deserve. Schedule a free, no-obligation case review today by calling 1-844-373-8202.

What is the personal injury claims process?

To have a valid claim, you must be able to prove that the other party acted in a careless or negligent manner. This requires showing:

  • The party owed you a duty of care;
  • The party failed to uphold this duty; and,
  • Their actions led to your injuries.

This requires evidence. The evidence you will need depends on how the accident occurred. For example, if you were injured in a slip and fall at a store, you might need:

  • Medical records and reports;
  • The incident report;
  • Surveillance footage;
  • Photos of the area and hazard;
  • Measurements of the area and hazard;
  • Witness contact information and statements; and,
  • Photos of your injuries.

If your injury occurred because of a car accident, you might need:

  • The police report;
  • Photos of the accident, the vehicular damage, and your injuries;
  • Engineering evidence reconstructing the accident;
  • Witness contact information and statements; and,
  • Medical records and reports.

After you prove negligence, you must calculate the value of your case, and provide proof of your losses. This is key to ensuring you get a fair settlement. Preszler Injury Lawyers works closely with a team of medical professionals and other expert witnesses to help clients assess their losses, both financial and non-pecuniary.

Should I hire a personal injury lawyer?

In order to win a personal injury case, you must prove that the other party caused your injuries, and the value of your losses. This requires collecting a wide range of evidence and presenting a strong argument to support your case. A Kelowna personal injury lawyer is often key in getting the compensation you deserve.

Discussing your case with a qualified lawyer is paramount to ensuring your rights remain protected throughout the entire claims process, and to help you get the maximum settlement possible. Insurance companies and their legal representatives often use carefully crafted tactics to attempt to reduce the value of your claim and strengthen their own defence.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we handle all aspects of your personal injury claim, protecting you from insurance company tactics and other potential problems that could compromise your case.

What is my personal injury case worth?

The value of your Kelowna personal injury claim depends on the nature of your injuries, their severity, your prognosis, and a number of other factors. The compensation available through this type of claim is based on a number of things, including:

A Kelowna personal injury lawyer can give you an estimate of the value of your claim, and help you calculate the actual value through collecting evidence to support all of your losses.

Assessing the full cost of your losses also helps to ensure a fair settlement in your case, especially when you have a lawyer representing you in negotiations with the insurance company. A lawyer may recommend filing a claim with the court if the insurer refuses to offer a fair settlement based on the value of your case.

How soon should I file my claim?

Victims of personal injuries in British Columbia generally have two years from the date of injury to file a claim for compensation against the liable party.

In some cases, however, there may be earlier filing deadlines. This is especially true if a government employee or government agency played a role in the accident. When you suffer injuries due to a provincial or municipal agency, you have a very short amount of time to file a notice of your intention to claim compensation. For this reason, you should contact a Kelowna personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after an accident.
