A serious injury can impact every aspect of daily life. Not only does a serious injury effect the life of the injured victim, but also that of their loved ones. This is why it is essential that you consult a lawyer immediately after a serious car accident in British Columbia.
Continued Care after Hospital Discharge
Returning home after a prolonged stay in the hospital can be a very stressful time for an injured person and their loved ones. A lawyer can make sure that an Occupational Therapist is ready to complete an in-home assessment to ensure the home is properly equipped with mobility or medical aids. Also, if a trained nurse or care aid is required, a lawyer can obtain the information necessary to arrange the appropriate funding from ICBC or the insurance company to reduce stress on loved ones.
After a serious car accident, access to rehabilitation and funding is a priority for recovery. A lawyer can facilitate treatment by recommending treatment providers, deferring costs and working with your medical team to arrange private diagnostic tests, such as MRI’s, that are essential for early detection of injuries.

Quantifying a Serious Injury Claim
A serious injury requires a legal team with extensive knowledge and experience in preparing damage claims for major loss injuries. When a person is no longer capable of working at the same capacity or in any capacity, extra evaluation and evidence is necessary to fully assess and quantify this loss. This can include one or all of the following:
- One or several assessments with medical experts;
- Functional and/or physical capacity evaluation;
- Cost of future care report;
- Vocational assessment;
- Economist report; and
- Life expectancy report (rare).
The car accident lawyers at Warnett Hallen have access to a team of engineering, vocational, occupational and medical experts who we work with to assess and quantify cases involving serious injures where major damages have occurred. We fight to ensure fair compensation is received.
