Bodily Injury

Key Contacts

Bodily injury claims often involve emotionally charged plaintiffs. We provide our clients with clear-cut solutions to empower them in these challenging cases. When we defend bodily injury claims on behalf of insurance groups, we give them our comprehensive assessments early on in the litigation process to prepare them for every stage of the case. We present clients with the fairest, quickest and most cost-effective course of action—whether that means going to trial or securing a settlement.

Our lawyers are active in professional associations including the Canadian Defence Lawyers, the Canadian Bar Association, Insurance Law Section, and the Medical Legal Society of British Columbia. We are up-to-date on all new legislation, important case law in the defence of bodily injury claims, and medical developments in the diagnosis and treatment of all physical and psychological injuries. We also have regular in-house seminars to discuss the implications of new legislation and important case law in the defence of bodily injury claims.
