Your Langford ICBC lawyers are here to help you resolve and win your personal injury claim. If you have been involved in a collision and that collision is not your fault, you will want to consult with a lawyer experienced in matters associated with the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia.
When deciding whether or not you should hire a lawyer there are some things you should know.
Many times, injured people are not sure about whether or not it is worth it to hire a lawyer. They are often concerned about the cost. At Hemminger Law Group Westshore, it is our view that the best thing to do is meet with one of our lawyers and tell them about your claim. You and the lawyer will discuss whether or not it makes sense to hire a lawyer for your claim.
ICBC does not want you to hire a lawyer. At the initial phases of your case, ICBC adjustors may be very friendly and cooperative. They are like this because it is part of their job. They do not work for you. They work for the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. * ICBC wants to make sure that you do not seek legal advice. At least, in our experience, if clients have legal representation, they end up getting more money than if they did not hire a lawyer. Such is the case even when they take into account the legal fees they paid.
Of course, every claim is different. We cannot make any guarantees on your claim. At the same time, we have countless examples of where this has been the case.
Most injured parties do not have the funds to pay up front for the cost of really great legal representation. Because of this, most ICBC lawyers, including us at Hemminger Law Group Westshore, will act for you and wait until your claim has been resolved to get paid. We can structure our legal fees from the ultimate amount of money you receive on a percentage basis.
We are motivated to get you as much money as possible for your injuries because the more money you get, the more money we make. It is simply good business. It is also good business for us to get as much money as possible for our clients because then they are happy and tell all their friends about how great their Langford ICBC lawyers were on their case. That is also good business.
