ICBC Says Car Crashes in BC at All-Time High
A recent article on the Daily Hive website reported that car crashes in British Columbia have hit an all-time high.
At Vertlieb & Co, we regularly work with people who have been seriously injured in an accident and who are worried about their future. We know that it can be both a physically and emotionally challenging time and that it’s hard to know what do.
If you have been seriously hurt in a car accident, it is important to understand your rights. Speaking with a lawyer is a good first step. And, for most lawyers, there is no charge for the first meeting. (There is no charge for the initial meeting with the legal team at Vertlieb & Co.) If you would like to speak with a lawyer about your personal injury and don’t know where to start, check out our blog post on what to look for when hiring a lawyer. It will help.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident and ICBC has offered you a settlement – it is important to make sure that you receive fair compensation. This is not a decision to be made quickly. You can find out more about what to do if you have been offered a settlement from ICBC on our blog post here.
If you have been seriously hurt, it helps to have someone who is on your side – an advocate who understands the law and can negotiate on your behalf. The team at the Vancouver law firm, Vertlieb & Co, has extensive experience doing this and works throughout British Columbia. Our founder and CEO, Art Vertlieb, is one of the most respected personal injury lawyers in Canada. His expertise is surpassed only by his compassion and commitment to his clients.
