Finding a Personal Injury Lawyer In British Columbia

Finding a personal injury lawyer in British Columbia can be confusing as their are so many directories and sites that just list car accident lawyers.  These directory sites do not vouch for the skills of the lawyer.  British Columbia Lawyers all have to have a licence to Practice law in the Province, that’s a starting point. The lawyer should have experience in car accident settlements, ICBC injury claims, whiplash claims, and  accident insurance claims.  
If you have suffered a pedestrian accident, motor cycle accidents, truck accident or other type of vehicle collision ask the lawyer whether he or she has had experience with those types of cases.
With respect to your actual injury: Brain Injury, Traumatic brain injury, Soft tissue injury, and others,  make sure the lawyer is familiar with the type of injury you are claiming.
Remember that a lawyer referral service is not a law firm and cannot give you legal advice. Finally, when you call a personal injury law firm, whether for yourself , a friend or family member always have the date of the accident, location, time the accident occurred and any witness information available.
If you are looking for a personal injury lawyer that works for injury victims and not ICBC,  please give me a call for a free consultation.  If you are looking for another type of lawyer and want to use a lawyer referral service I think the service offered by the Canadian Bar Association is well administered.
