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 your recovery. If you have been injured in an incident for which you are not at fault, the best time to take action is now.
Your injury may have occurred while you were a vehicle occupant, pedestrian, a guest in a business, or some other incident. It is important that you know your rights. You should speak to a lawyer with Villani & Company as soon as possible. We provide free initial 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 driver who hit you. This means obtaining 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 most injury incidents, it is important that you commence a court action within two years of the date of the accident. Not doing so may extinguish your claim. Some accidents have shorter time limitations.
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 initial consultations for motor vehicle claims and, in the event of serious injuries, may work on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not get paid until you do.
At Villani & Company, we believe that in-person contact is always best. Our lawyers are committed to having regular meetings throughout your recovery — not just when you are ready to settle. We will visit you at home or in the hospital if you are unable to come to our office. Alternatively, we are experienced with virtual meetings – we can connect with you via video technology, such as Zoom™. Our staff is always here to answer questions or to simply listen to your needs. Our office is conveniently located in Powell River and is wheelchair accessible. We are a part of this community, and we are proud of that fact.
