ICBC Lawyer Injured in a car accident

Postby Parent on Wed Feb 10, 2016 4:48 pm

Can anyone recommend a good ICBC lawyer in Victoria?
We are interested in an introductory meeting to find out our options.
Has anyone hired Anne Sheane?

Background
I am looking for advice following a car accident that happened almost 2 years ago. It was a rear ender and the other driver was 100% at fault. ICBC did pay out for the car that was totalled.

The claim is ending in a few months and there is an outstanding soft tissue back injury. The injury is not severe like a broken back, but it is persistent. ICBC has offered to settle a few times, but because the back is still sore we keep saying no -- not sure that it will ever be fixed totally. The deadline to settle is 2 years unless a claim is filed with a lawyer - so either we settle or get a lawyer.

We want someone who is easy to talk to and will give us straightforward advice. I want to know the pros and cons of settling now versus later, the steps and costs involved. We don't want to hire someone and then end up with less than if we settled on our own.

Thanks everyone

Pretty much all personal injury lawyers will do a free consult. Maybe talk to a few and compare their advice.

Ken Walton is by far the best in Victoria. His office is on Sooke Road in Colwood. Numerous years experience dealing with lawsuits against ICBC.

Lambert and Williams in VicWest - they opened in August 2014 and the partners are Darren Williams and Rory Lambert. Excellent Google reviews - and they only work for personal injury plaintiffs. Both Darren and Rory have over a decade of experience - and the philosophy of the firm is very client orientated (they put the client's physical recovery first). Personally, I think Darren is awesome (but I might be biased as I'm married to him)... :D

They have free consultations - and a don't pay until they get paid policy on injury claims. The office can be called at 250-888-0002.

Best of luck with your claim - but time is running short, as there is a statute of limitations of 2 years to file if you wish to pursue through the courts.
