In years of practicing as personal injury lawyers representing injured parties, like you, we have identified a common flaw in the way that lawyers approach their client: they don't see their clients as patients. We believe lawyers have a role in working with their client's personal care team.
Our clients have suffered life-altering injuries. Their physical and emotional health has been damaged. Financial problems often follow, especially if our client can no longer work.
It is within this this context that we believe the conventional approach of most lawyers - that is sitting in a room across from our client and explaining the complex legal process of suing a defendant based on "negligence" and "damages" - does little to help a client who is in pain, depressed and financially stressed.
Our approach is different. It starts with reviewing the care you may have received from ICBC under the "no-fault" benefits that every party to a motor vehicle accident is entitled in British Columbia.
We begin to forge a relationship with ICBC's adjusters, and seek to retain competent Occupational Therapist's who help develop the client's overall care plan. We have regular meetings with our clients, monitor their mood and progress, sometimes we help negotiate new financial terms with their bank, credit card company or other loan providers. In short, we are there for YOU!
All of this is important for your legal case. An injured party's chance of a positive outcome in their legal case is improved if they sought out and obtained competent medical treatment. We help coordinate that. In plain terms we help a client recover a larger monetary reward because we are actively ensuring that the right treatment is being sought, that the care plan is being developed and followed.
We can do all of this because it is our sole area of practice. Other lawyers dabble in personal injury and can not afford to develop the same type of "hands-on" practice as us. We have developed a practice that is focused on our commitment to our clients, both their legal case and their recovery from injury. We bring our strength as knowledgeable and highly successful professionals to YOU, because we care deeply for our clients We draw on that compassion in our advocacy for their interests.
We know that legal action can sometimes be overwhelming. We are dedicated to providing you help in language that you can understand. If you don't feel like you understand your options, just ask, and we will find an explanation that works for you.
