It is normal to want to know what kind of personal injury or ICBC settlement you can expect, but this process is extremely complex. Our ICBC and car accident lawyers have the experience required to gather the evidence necessary to assess each portion of your damage claim. This can include the following:
Pain and Suffering (Non-Pecuniary)
Injuries sustained from car accidents range from mild soft tissue injuries to catastrophic injuries. All injuries cause pain and suffering, but the effect on one’s life differs with the injury severity. The car accident lawyers at Warnett Hallen have the experience necessary to maximize your car accident injury claim on an individual basis.
Past Wage Loss
Whether it’s a simple calculation or an accumulated loss of business, the legal team at Warnett Hallen assesses your wage loss to find the evidence needed for a strong wage-loss case as part of your ICBC injury claim. Supporting yourself and your loved ones should always be your top priority. Warnett Hallen LLP has the skills and training to protect your livelihood and compensate your wage losses.
Cost of Future Care
Injuries sustained from a car accident require care and future treatment that extend the duration of litigation or a car accident injury claim with ICBC. If a medical expert recommends future treatment and care, we will claim these costs as part of your ICBC settlement. Examples of future care costs include ongoing therapy and treatment, medication or in-home care.
Loss of Capacity to Earn and Loss of Opportunity
Injuries make it extremely difficult to work at the same capacity prior to a car accident. People with injuries sustained from car accidents often lose the ability to work extra hours. In other cases, they may need to reduce their work hours or are unable to work the same job duties in any capacity. Injured people may fall into a last-hired, first-fired category and cannot access the job market compared to the uninjured population. The car accident lawyers at Warnett Hallen will make sure this loss is properly assessed, quantified and supported by extracting the necessary evidence and presenting your claim to ICBC.
Out of Pocket Expenses (Special Damages)
If you have been injured in a car accident, you may incur expenses as a direct result of the car accident. However. not all treatment costs are covered by ICBC. Although Warnett Hallen can assist with treatment costs, there are other expenses such as mileage to and from medical appointments, costs of hiring help for household maintenance and other costs that directly result from a car accident. The car accident lawyers at Warnett Hallen will track these expenses and request reimbursement from ICBC.
A car accident can have a detrimental effect on your overall quality and enjoyment of life, ability to earn and ability to work in the future. If you have been injured in a car accident, the car accident lawyers at Warnett Hallen LLP are here to help.
