Common Questions We Receive

If you’re ever in need of a personal injury lawyer, chances are you have a lot of important questions running through your mind. At Stephens & Holman, we recommend that all of our present and future clients ask as many questions as they need to understand their rights when it comes to filing a personal injury claim.

Our experienced lawyers are here to assist you in every way possible and want you to be an integral part of the process. At our offices, we often get questions on all facets of personal injury cases. We’d like to go over some of the more common questions we frequently receive and let you know that we’re here during this difficult time to help fight for you so you can get the maximum compensation you deserve.

Does hiring a lawyer affect my ICBC claim?

  • Many people are often concerned that if they hire legal representation that it will negatively affect their ICBC claim. We want you to know that it will not. It would be illegal and unethical for ICBC to reduce or penalize your claim for hiring a lawyer. Our lawyers can help you make sure that you’re receiving all of the benefits you’re entitled to after an accident.

How can a lawyer help with my ICBC claim?

  • Our lawyers can help you by ensuring that your legal rights are protected during the claim process. We can also help to collect and preserve any evidence relating to your accident to help maximize the compensation you may receive.

If I’m in a car accident, what information do I need?

  • If you’re involved in a car accident that was caused by the negligence of another driver there are certain pieces of information we will need to help you in the most effective way possible. The information we need from you includes things such as names and phone numbers of all parties involved in the accident as well as any witnesses; the date, time, and location of the accident as well as the road/weather conditions at the time; any medical information if you had treatment because of the accident.

What rights do we have if a loved one was killed by negligence?

  • Having a loved one die because of another’s carelessness or negligence is a devastating experience. While the loss of a loved one can never be replaced, our lawyers can help surviving family members such as spouses, children or dependants pursue compensation for costs of medical treatment, funeral, and burial expenses.
