The Vancouver-based personal injury lawyers at Murphy Battista LLP provide comprehensive client service across the full range of needs arising in the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident. Contact Murphy Battista for a free consultation and learn how you can benefit from our experience negotiating settlements and litigating serious personal injury claims. Our focus on client service and our careful attention to detail in the proof of accident claims are two ways that we help clients get their lives back.
Murphy Battista has decades of experience with the presentation and proof of losses before the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC). We recommend that you obtain legal advice as soon as possible after an accident, and before you discuss your potential claims with an ICBC adjuster. Be aware that ICBC’s interest is to resolve your claim at the least possible expense. ICBC adjusters are employees of ICBC. As such, they have a duty to act in the best interest of the corporation even though they are referred to as “your” adjuster. Because of this apparent conflict of interest, you should not expect any insurer (or its employees) to go out of its way to identify compensable losses for you, or to investigate potential rights of recovery that might be hard to prove.
At Murphy Battista, our job is to even the playing field between accident survivors and ICBC. We know what components of loss are likely to be resisted and how detailed evidence and expert testimony can establish your right to payment on contested claims. Our lawyers also work closely with accident victims, their families and their medical treatment teams to ensure that we understand the practical effects of the accident medically, financially, personally and emotionally. All of this evidence is important in both settlement negotiations and in situations where a claim must be taken to trial to achieve fair injury compensation.
Your personal injury team at Murphy Battista acts for clients in a wide range of motor vehicle accident situations including:
While attending to the problems of proof that frequently arise after a motor vehicle injury, our lawyers are fully committed to helping people deal with the problems and uncertainties associated with time lost from work, slow convalescence or the psychological consequences of a traumatic accident.
