The Law Show: Ep. 12: Evidence, Finding a Lawyer and Starting an ICBC Claim
Scott Stanley and Kevin Gourlay discuss the importance of expert and lay witnesses evidence on pre and post accident behaviours in brain injury cases as well as the types of cases and circumstances where people should seriously consider getting a lawyer. They also discuss how Murphy Battista helps clients while they are waiting for their cases to be resolved and how to go about finding the lawyer that is right for you. Scott and Kevin then review the information helpful at a first meeting as well as what you need to do to start an ICBC claim. The key take away is that while you do need to report that an accident has occurred as soon as possible you are also entitled to seek legal advice before providing substantial detail. You may not need to hire a lawyer but everyone involved in an accident should talk to one first before making that decision so that you are fully informed of your rights and obligations.
