B.C. Pedestrian Injury Lawyers
Whether a pedestrian is crossing the street in a crosswalk or outside a crosswalk, with or without the benefit of traffic signals, it is the responsibility of every motorist to recognize the pedestrian’s rights. When a motorist fails to do so, and accidents happen, the resulting injuries can be extremely serious, if not fatal.
Injury victims have the right to seek compensation including loss of income, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, medical care and other benefits from the negligent parties. The Vancouver pedestrian accident lawyers at the law firm of Grant Kovacs Norell represent clients throughout the Lower Mainland and British Columbia in a broad range of these types of accidents.
Representing Injured Pedestrians in ICBC Claims
If you were hit by a motor vehicle, it is likely that your claim will be handled by ICBC (Insurance Corporation of British Columbia). If an ICBC representative contacts you to make a settlement offer, do not commit to anything without speaking to one of our lawyers. If you accept a settlement before you know the full extent of your injuries, you could be giving up some of your future rights.
Our experience with these cases has given us an insight into the types of injuries that are possible and the importance of gaining a full understanding of your injuries before discussing a settlement offer. When you retain our firm, we will do everything in our power to see that you receive the financial and medical support you need in the short and long term.
