I have been a personal injury lawyer in Vancouver serving all of British Columbia, including Langley, Surrey, and the Tri-city areas,  since 1995 and have assisted numerous ICBC injury claimants obtain fair settlements. One of the first questions people ask me at a free legal consultation is how much I charge for legal fees.
Legal fees are regulated in British Columbia and lawyers and personal injury lawyers cannot charge anything they want. If you pay your lawyer by the hour, the hourly rate must be reasonable given the type of case, experience of the lawyer, and other factors including complexity and the importance of the outcome to the injury claimant.
If you are paying a personal injury lawyer by percentage for a car accident claim you cannot be charged more than  one-third without approval of the court.  Other injury claims such as medical malpractice and slip and fall can be even more complex and a personal injury lawyer can charge 40% or more with approval of the court. Take a look at my short video about hiring personal injury lawyers in BC.
Free legal advice for your ICBC injury claim cannot be competently obtained by simply reading articles on the Internet.  Your personal injury case will have unique facts that will require a personalized assessment of your case.  You can often find out if you would benefit from having a lawyer by attending a free legal consultation with a personal injury lawyer in BC. The lawyers at Holness Law Group will agree to talk with you at no charge to help determine whether you really need a personal injury lawyer in Vancouver for your claim.
Car accident lawyers in BC are some of the most well regulated lawyers in the world.  The Law Society of British Columbia regulates the more than 10,000 lawyers in the province, setting and enforcing standards of professional conduct that ensure the public is well-served by competent lawyers.
