Personal Injury Claims

What is a personal injury claim worth?

There are many types of personal injury claims: car accidents, slip and fall, animal attacks, physical disfigurement, occupiers accidents, and school accidents, to name a few.

Each personal injury claim will have unique legal and compensation issues depending on where the accident happened when it happened and the extent of the injuries. However, personal injury claims may include compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering – loss of your enjoyment of life
  • Loss of earnings, past, and future
  • Care costs – medical care, rehabilitation and other current and future costs including nursing or attendant care beyond what is available from accident benefits
  • Housekeeping and homemaking services
  • Compensation for family members affected by your personal injuries

Do I have a personal injury claim in British Columbia?

The law specifies ‘limitation dates’ on personal injury claims. These dates are set by the specific law that covers personal injury, such as homeowners, commercial, car accident or civic insurance. It is very important that you know the time frame in which you have to submit a claim to the insurance company.
