Personal Injury & ICBC
A personal injury lawyer can help assist you in receiving compensation for damages suffered as a result of someone else’s negligence. We deal with the insurance company and the legal proceedings so that you can focus on getting better. If you have been injured in an incident for which you are not at fault, the best time to take action is now.
If you have been injured in an accident, whether as a vehicle occupant, pedestrian, slip and fall or some other accident, it is important that you know your rights. You should speak to a lawyer with Villani & Company as soon as possible. We provide free consultations and will often work on a contingency fee agreement so we only get paid if you do.
If you have been injured in a hit and run, it is very important that you take immediate steps to try to determine the identity of the other driver. This means getting the names and phone numbers of any witnesses, placing an ad in the paper, notifying the police and placing posters asking for witnesses at the site of the accident.
For any accident, it is important that you commence a court action within two years of the date of the accident. Not doing so will extinguish your claim.
It is important that you speak to a lawyer before you sign any document with ICBC so that you understand your rights. We provide free consultations for motor vehicle claims and work on a contingency fee basis, which means we don’t get paid until you do. With Villani & Company, we’re only paid once we deliver positive results for our clients. That means there are no fees until your case is settled!
