PERSONAL INJURY | ICBC

Our BC personal injury lawyers help accident victims obtain fair compensation for their injuries. We know that recovering from an accident can be a stressful process that takes a heavy toll on accident victims and their families. At McQuarrie, we consistently strive to efficiently meet the needs of our clients so that they are able to return to concentrating on the issues in their life that truly matter.

If you have been injured in an accident, it is important that you seek legal advice as early as possible so that your legal rights and obligations can be assessed and your interests protected. Our lawyers help you navigate the injury claims process so that you can focus on your recovery.

How much is My Claim Worth?

Compensation is always based on the particular facts of your claim and on the value assigned by the courts to similar sets of facts. In particular, the circumstances of the accident, the severity of the injuries and the impact the accident has on your ability to earn a living will influence the range of damages to which you are entitled.

When required, our clients also benefit from our lawyers experience achieving impressive results through courtroom advocacy and trial work. Recently, a personal injury lawyer in Surrey, Perry Armitage, and the personal injury team achieved an award at trial in excess of 1.8 million dollars for a personal injury client.

Types of Accidents

Our experienced personal injury lawyers act for a wide-variety of accident victims. Our clients include victims of:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck or van accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bike accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Trip-and-fall accidents
  • Assaults

Although accident claims share common elements, our team recognize that every personal injury law case is unique.

While our lawyers see certain injuries more often than others, we recognize that each case is unique. Our lawyers work with medical professionals to determine the severity of a client’s injuries and the impact that these injuries have on their ability to earn an income and live a fulfilling life. We also work with economists, occupational therapists, vocational consultants and actuaries wherever necessary to help us assess, predict and quantify current and future losses for our personal injury clients.

Personal Injury Experience

The experience of a personal injury lawyer is critical to their degree of success in representing the interests of accident victims. Settling a claim with ICBC requires both a commitment to advocating strongly for a client’s interests as well as years of experience guiding efforts for settlement. Our lawyers have considerable experience and a strong track record of achieving generous settlements for our clients through mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution, which are often the most efficient ways to settle personal injury claims.

We treat accident victims as we would like to be treated. This means offering legal assistance through a translator in your language of choice (including Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, French, Cantonese, Mandarin, etc). This commitment to service extends to the families of accident victims who often suffer alongside their loved-ones.

If you are having even the slightest doubt about whether you should see a lawyer or you are wondering “Do I have a case?” – DON’T! That is exactly how I felt before I called McQuarrie. The legal team of Kirk Wirsig and James Hankinson worked above my expectations while handling my long term disability claim. They worked tirelessly to successfully settle my case with a fantastic result and in much less time than I expected. They were extremely professional, personal and compassionate and made the entire process simple. Make the call – you won’t be disappointed.

I highly recommend Mr. Sarando Matheos for anyone looking for trustworthy legal representation. I was recently represented by Mr. Matheos in a denied long term disability claim and he was everything I could have hoped for in a legal advocate. I found him to be supportive, empathetic and compassionate to my situation during our meetings. And during negotiations, I was thrilled to have him standing with me as a very experienced, knowledgeable, trustworthy, articulate, respectful and tenacious advocate.Contact this firm if you need assistance. I am so glad I did!

I was put in an interesting position being able to observe and support my friend as she progressed through the arduous journey of fighting back when denied a long term disability claim by her insurance providor.Her decision to sign on with Sarando Matheos and the team at McQuarrie Hunter was the best decision she could have made.Sarando helped her through the whole process and when it came time to deal head to head with the insurance company, he did everything we could have expected and more.It was a long day of negotiation but he remained professional, respectfull and calm with the final outcome being the right outcome for everyone.

Sarrando helped me resolve a situation that had been going on for years prior. Not once did I feel like I was just a case number. I could tell he was invested in seeing an outcome that would benefit my needs. He fought for my rights and came through 200%. I was updated and educated on the legalities of everything so I didnt feel lost or overwhelmed. He guided me through a situation that was highly stressful and made me feel at ease. I am beyond grateful I had him in my corner!

I'm not usually one to leave reviews, but I would've felt a slight guilt to have not commended Mquarrie Hunter due to the level of professionalism and security I had experienced from this firm. I was represented by Perry who displayed an exemplary amount of confidence and knowledge toward his trade, while still keeping me informed to the realities of my case. Mr. Armitage made sure that I felt in control and aware of everything that happened through out my legal battle and I can't show appreciation enough for how he, and the firm, handled my case through to the end.

I was working with Martin Willemse after I was denied disability. I can’t recommend him enough! He’s been in this field for a long time and it shows. Highly professional, knowledgeable and kind person. I felt heard and understood, everything was done in a very professional manner.When you’re struggling with health problems and barely functioning, the last thing you want to do is try to fight with insurances who will want to dismiss your disability no matter what. Hire Martin Willemse and you won’t be disappointed!

Martin Willemse is top drawer. He is as others describe him to be - caring and compassionate. He definitely has the knowledge skills and ability needed to do the job that he does. I was dubious of litigation after my horrible experience in family court but Martin proved that he knows his strengths and has fortitude to boot. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Martin. I Wish I could say more - much more. Suffice to say his name ought to send shock waves to those in his cross hairs.
