Paine Edmonds LLP – Multi-Service Law Firm in Downtown Vancouver

An accident can change your life in a moment and plunge you into uncertainty at every level. This is when you need a personal injury lawyer with experience in catastrophic injury claim law. In the Lower Mainland, victims with catastrophic injuries can turn to Paine Edmonds, personal injury lawyers in Vancouver, for the support and legal guidance they need at this critical time.

A catastrophic injury is quite rigidly defined as an injury which causes long-term or permanent limitation of daily activities, work and self care. Typically, these are injuries such as severe fractures of the bone or damage to the brain or spinal cord. When you or a family member experiences such a life-changing injury, you will need a multidisciplinary team of people to help with the medical, psychological, financial and legal consequences. At Paine Edmonds, we can help you find the experts, such as doctors, physical and occupational therapists, psychologists, social workers and financial advisors who, together, can give you the guidance you need at this time.

Dealing with a catastrophic injury to a loved one or recovering from one yourself requires all your energy and resources. Dealing with the insurance company or the court should not distract you from your first priority: recovery. That’s why your Paine Edmonds catastrophic injury claim lawyer will take charge of organizing the investigation and documentation of your case so that a claim can be filed in a timely manner. We are experienced in providing people dealing with catastrophic injuries the support and advocacy they need to re-imagine and rebuild their future.

Personal Injury Lawyers in Vancouver

The majority of injuries that we deal with at Paine Edmonds are, most fortunately, not catastrophic in nature. However, we understand that injuries of many kinds result in loss of income, pain and suffering. As your personal injury lawyers in Vancouver, we can play a crucial role in your recovery by taking on the stress of dealing with insurance companies and other entities who may see your injury simply as a liability on their bottom line.

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident of any kind, come in for an initial consultation and let us guide you through the next steps to build a solid case. We know ICBC’s rules and general practices and can advise you on your rights and entitlements: keep in mind that your ICBC adjuster is not required to offer you this information. For this reason, we recommend that you talk to a personal injury lawyer before you call the insurance company. If, for any reason, your disability benefits have been denied or have not been disbursed in a timely manner, we will actively pursue the recovery of these benefits to promote your recovery.

Paine Edmonds LLP has been a leader in the field of personal injury law and catastrophic injury claims for decades. Our years of experience have helped us understand the short-term and long-term challenges you and your family will face in the aftermath of an injury. At a time when you are necessarily focused on the physical and emotional pain caused by your injury, we can provide you with holistic, compassionate and far-sighted legal guidance as well as a variety of resources to help promote your recovery. Through negotiation, and, if necessary, litigation, we will make every effort to secure for you the fair compensation you need to rebuild your life from a critical injury.
