Offering High-Quality Representation For Accident Claims

An accident is a traumatic experience that often leaves injured victims who need medical and financial help. Individuals have the right to seek compensation for their pain and suffering.

Since 1963, Porter Ramsay LLP has assisted many accident victims through the claims process. Our Kelowna-based lawyers carefully guide clients through accident benefits claims while using their skill and experience to pursue fair compensation.

Safeguarding Your Rights In Personal Injury Claims

Accident claimants expect fair treatment from insurers. They do not realize that insurers often keep payouts to a minimum. As a result, you may not get adequate compensation.

Our lawyers have negotiated hundreds of insurance claims. We understand how entitlements to benefits are calculated, and we will use that knowledge at the negotiating table to pursue a compensation package that you deserve.

We have experience negotiating benefits packages for a wide range of accident types and claims, including:

  • Motor vehicle accidents and ICBC claims
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Wrongful death claims
  • Slip-and-fall accidents

The Importance Of Making A Claim Without Delay

Injuries suffered after an accident may appear minor at first, but they can be more serious than you realize. Some people may even delay filing a claim until their injuries get worse. A delay in claim can result in the insurer refusing to pay reasonable compensation. It is critical that medical and legal advice be sought directly after an accident.

Our lawyers regularly deal with the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia and we know that the sooner a claim is made, the better the chances of getting proper compensation. We will put you in contact with medical and rehabilitation specialists after you seek us out for assistance. This means we will have a proper diagnosis of your injuries before we settle your claim, which gives us more leverage to fight for fair compensation.
