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. Posted by Mr. Renn A. Holness

Jacqueline Small is diligent, professional, and compassionate. She went above and beyond when I was injured in a motor vehicle accident. Anytime I had questions she would respond quickly and always seemed to be one step ahead. I called several accident law firms and none were as knowledgeable and sincere as Jacqueline. Highly recommended!
I would totally recommend this law group. Renn handled my case with the utmost professionalism kept me informed throughout and explained in easy to understand layman's terms. I am very happy with how things worked out. I would highly recommend if you ever need a lawyer to contact him. Great job and a big thank you to all.
Over a period of 4 years Jacqueline Small guided me throughout the entirety of my personal injury claim after a motor vehicle accident left me with chronic pain. My experience was pleasant, professional, thorough, and communication was always open. I was treated with care like a person and not just a case. Jacqueline was with me every step of the way until we reached a settlement with the insurance company. 10/10 I would recommend to any friends or family.
