WHAT IS Personal Injury?
Personal injuries, like those caused by a motor vehicle accident, can have catastrophic consequences that affect both you and your family. Pain and suffering are only part of the loss. Loss of employment, ongoing expenses and costly medical care are also frequent consequences from a serious injury.
At Pihl Law Corporation, we recognize that dealing with an insurance company can be a difficult and intimidating experience. We want to help you level the playing field, with our team of experienced personal injury lawyers. We will guide you through the legal and financial challenges that follow your accident and will ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Although some very simple and straightforward claims may be more economically handled by you, the victim, the majority of claims will involve complexities that are not obvious to most people and that significantly affect the value of claims.
We are an approachable team of personal injury lawyers. We have extensive experience in dealing with traumatic personal injuries, including:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injuries
- Injuries caused by car accidents, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents
- Orthopedic injuries
- Slip and fall
- Medical malpractice, wrongful death, and infant claims
- Personal Injury inflicted by a range of circumstances
If you feel that you can identify with any of these situations – or a similar unfortunate circumstance– and feel that you or a loved one may have been wrongfully disadvantaged as a result, then the advice of our Personal Injury Kelowna team could help you to make the best of a bad situation. The guidance and support that our knowledgeable and experienced staff can provide could prove to be invaluable in achieving clarity, security and a sense of justice in what can otherwise feel like a confusing, vulnerable and unfair time. In many cases, we do not charge for initial consultations regarding personal injuries. Even if you eventually chose to represent yourself, we may be able to provide you with valuable tips for resolving your case on your own. We understand that to protect yourself and your family you must understand your legal rights.
Many people are unaware that they are entitled to make a claim, to secure the justice that they rightfully deserve. By contacting our Personal Injury Kelowna lawyers, you can take the first steps towards accessing the support that is available to you, and achieving the rightful result in a circumstance where you or a loved one has been wrongfully harmed.
Our skilled and understanding team can appreciate the obstacles and difficulties that a personal injury can create.
