Wondering if You Have a Claim? Find out from One of Our Disability Lawyers in Vancouver!

Unfortunately, there are many circumstances where a person suffers an injury, but does not have a viable personal injury claim. This often arises when it is very difficult, if not impossible, to prove negligence on the part of the suspected wrongdoer. As a result, a person does not always have a claim against someone even though they have suffered an injury, regardless of how serious it is.

Seek Legal Advice from Our Firm Immediately

If you have suffered an injury, but you are uncertain whether you have a claim or not, the best thing to do is to seek legal advice immediately, especially since different types of legal claims have different deadlines to sue. In British Columbia, a lawsuit arising from personal injury must be filed within two years of the incident which caused the injury. If you are seeking a disability lawyer in Vancouver, the personal injury lawyers, case managers, and paralegals at Paine Edmonds LLP have vast experience in handling personal injury and disability claims arising from a variety of causes. Please feel free to call today for a free consultation.

If you do have a viable personal injury claim, if an insurance company is involved, it’s vitally important you realize that the insurance company is acting in the interest of the wrongdoer who caused the accident, not you. Only a personal injury lawyer retained by you can properly represent you and your best interests.
