What is Personal Injury Law?

Serving Greater Vancouver and Nearby Areas of British Columbia

Personal injury law can apply to a wide range of circumstances, but its foundation is simple: If you suffered injury due to the negligent or deliberately harmful act of another, you may be able to pursue a civil claim in an attempt to recover compensation for related damages.

Most personal injury claims relate to motor vehicle collisions including:

Automobile accidents
Motorcycle accidents
Truck accidents
Bus accidents
SUV rollovers
 

However, personal injury cases also commonly relate to:

Pedestrian accidents
Dangerous premises
Defective products
Bicycle accidents
Boat accidents
Airplane accidents
 

Depending on the circumstances of your injury, you may be entitled to seek financial compensation for related property damage, medical expenses including rehabilitation, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Because there are time limitations and other requirements surrounding injury claims, it is recommended to discuss your situation with an experienced injury lawyer as soon as possible following the incident that caused your injury.
