A common question: I just had a car accident. Do I need a personal injury lawyer? The answer: You do not need a lawyer to claim compensation for an injury. However, often it’s strongly recommended to seek legal help.
Driving is a necessary part of modern life, but roads aren’t always safe. Every year, thousands of people in British Columbia are injured and killed in car crashes, leading to physical, emotional, psychological and financial burdens not only for victims, but also their families. Our car accident lawyers serve clients in Surrey, Burnaby, Port Coquitlam and surrounding area of BC. At Spraggs & Co., can help you get access to the care and support you need—and to seek compensation on your behalf for your injuries.
Car crashes or motor vehicle accidents (MVA) happen for a number of reasons and a combination of factors. Frequently, one driver is more at fault for the accident. Usually, that driver has failed to follow the rules of the road by:
- Disobeying traffic signs and failing to signal
- Driving in a hazardous manner—too fast or too slow
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Failing to adjust driving to weather or traffic conditions
Car accidents can also be caused by a variety of other sources including:
- Malfunctioning or defective products
- Poorly repaired vehicles
- Improperly maintained roads or malfunctioning traffic signals
- Intoxicated drivers
As a result of a car accident a victim may sustain soft tissue injuries, neck, back and other injuries, and brain injuries. You may also be entitled to out of pocket expenses, compensation for lost wages and future earnings, payment for pain and suffering, and compensation for future care.
