At Warnett Hallen, your success is our success. Here are some car accident case examples that we have successfully settled.
Trevor Smith – working with Warnett Hallen changed my life forever
Trevor was out with friends for an evening of fun and on the way home the driver of the car that Trevor was travelling in hit a telephone pole. Trevor woke up in the hospital, with no recollection of the accident. But the accident caused many injuries and left him battered and bruised. Trevor sustained soft tissue injuries, multiple bone fractures to the face, left clavicle and pelvis. He had contusions to both knees. The physical injuries have been on the mend with a program of physiotherapy and other treatments. However, more than a year after the accident Trevor was still experiencing problems with memory, focus, being forgetful and having debilitating migraine headaches. Believing this was just the aftermath of the accident, Trevor did not pursue the opinions of any specialists. This all changed when he met with Paul Warnett, Vancouver Personal Injury Lawyer. It was the guidance of Paul using his expertise in handling traumatic head injury car accident cases and calling on many experts to help get a proper diagnosis for Trevor’s brain injury. Utilizing special illustrations constructed from photos, CT scans and medical reports, Paul was able to provide proof of Trevor’s specific skull fractures, left brain hemorrhage and carotid canal fractures. Trevor has now reached a very successful settlement with ICBC which will enable him to continue treatments and eventually re-enter the work force. See more details regarding head injury diagnosis on the Warnett Hallen blog.
“Five years ago I was in a brutal car crash, which has changed my life forever. Throughout it all there were a lot of ups and downs. One aspect that stayed solid and on course was Paul Warnett’s attitude and passion for my case. He never once wavered his professional attitude on what he believed I deserved.
Thanks to him, I received the money I deserved from ICBC. There would be absolutely no way I could have done this all by myself. I endorse Paul Warnett and his firm. My experience with all of the staff members was amazing – they were so caring and professional.
Thank you for everyone who has helped this case come to a close, and most importantly, thank you Paul Warnett for all you have done for me, I can never repay you. Just know you have changed my life forever.” — Trevor Smith
P.T. – Amazed at the settlement
What could have been a devastating lifelong outcome for a young, career-minded person has turned into a success story. After a July 2013 car accident in Vancouver, BC, P.T. had to enter a year of rehabilitation for serious soft-tissue injuries, wrist and thoracic spine injuries. The ICBC car accident settlement included compensation for wage loss, injuries and ongoing medical care.
“The focus of this case was to get P.T. the necessary medical support in place,” reports Manjot Hallen. “He needed a new family doctor and a series of specialists to help him through rehab. He was unable to work for a period of time, but we wanted to help him pursue his career of working in law enforcement. He is now working full time and managing some lingering pain with healthy living, keeping strong and getting massage treatments.” Read more about P.T’s story on our blog.
“I was very happy with my settlement. The level of support from Warnett Hallen in terms of organizing my medical treatments was what got me through this ordeal. I was so amazed at the settlement Manjot negotiated on my behalf.” — Pritam Thandi
Brent James – I was treated like family
A severe motor vehicle accident caused an abrupt change to the life of Mr. Brent James, who now suffers from a spinal cord injury. In the accident, Mr. James’ automobile rolled over and he was ejected from the vehicle. The initial impact broke his neck and left him paralyzed from the chest down. Mr. James has also lost all feeling in his hands, including limited mobility of his hands and arms.
But with the help of Warnett Hallen, and personal injury lawyer Paul Warnett, Mr. James was able to focus on his recovery and start a new life.
“Paul made it easier to deal with my injuries and I was able to focus on my recovery,” said Mr. James.
In a complex case such as Mr. James’, filled with delays, set-backs and twists and turns over a two year period, Warnett Hallen guided the successful case into a conclusion. Throughout this process, a keystone of Warnett Hallen’s service was open communications with Mr. James, keeping him updated on developments and responding to questions and concerns at every juncture. To learn more about his case, view his testimonial here.
“They made it a very personal case for themselves and that’s what makes Warnett Hallen a good team to have on your side because they do treat you like a family,” said Mr. James.
Nilesh Sahai – Personal injury successfully settled
Mr. Nilesh Sahai was only in his early 30s when he was involved in a life altering collision: he was struck by a drunk driver. The accident caused a fatality and Mr. Sahai was lucky to walk away alive. The months and years that followed were trying times. Mr. Sahai suffered from chronic pain and he wasn’t able to return to work due to his injuries.
Recently, Mr. Sahai’s claim was successfully settled by Warnett Hallen. On Warnett Hallen’s services, Mr. Sahai noted:
“Manjot was always there when I needed him. I was even able to connect with him on the weekends when I needed his advice and assistance. Manjot guided me through the legal process. He devised a good strategy for maximizing the value of my claim. He sent me to the right experts and prepared me thoroughly for my examination for discovery. I’m certain that ICBC would not have taken my claim seriously, if I didn’t have Warnett Hallen LLP on my side.” — Nilesh Shari
Moe Kabalan – Four Accidents, One Successful Settlement
Mr. Moe Kabalan was involved in four motor vehicle accidents. The first took place in 2008 and the most recent in 2013. The combined effect of four accidents in five years was physically and mentally devastating. Mr. Kabalan suffered bodily injuries and was forced to change his profession. He could no longer sustain his work as a taxi driver due to his fear of being involved in another accident and worse, potentially a fatal one.
Recently, with the assistance of Warnett Hallen, Mr. Kabalan settled his claim for all four motor vehicle accidents. Representing Mr. Kabalan was Manjot Hallen who had been his lawyer since 2008. Of his experience with Warnett Hallen, Mr. Kabalan had this to say:
“Manjot was there from the beginning. I trusted him and his ability to find an amicable resolution to my claims and that is exactly what he did. I stuck with his plan and it turned out great. I had referred my family and friends to Warnett Hallen LLP based on my relationship with Manjot and my gut instinct that he would do a great job for them and achieve a great result for me. I was right. We got a great result and my family has been happy with the level of service.
I haven’t hesitated, and now I definitely never would hesitate, to refer anyone to Warnett Hallen LLP.” — Moe Kabalan
