Breaking Down Vancouver’s Most Dangerous Streets and Roads

Published on Nov 16, 2018 at 6:36 pm in Car Accidents.

Vancouver is the most densely populated city in Canada. As a result, it means our roads often see heavy traffic which can lead to a high risk of auto wrecks in and around the city. While there’s no way to completely protect against the possibility of a collision, you can make yourself aware of the more dangerous spots. If you’ve been involved in a crash that someone else caused, our Vancouver car accident lawyers can help you with your ICBC claim to ensure you receive the results you deserve.

Why is Brain Injury a Risk to Football Players?

Published on Oct 31, 2018 at 4:28 pm in Brain Injury.

Football is one of the most popular sports in Canada. Whether a young person is learning how to play the game for the first time, or your family and friends have gathered to watch your favorite teams play, football offers a sense of community. While we love to watch the game and root for our favorite players, there are serious and sometimes deadly consequences associated with the sport that need to be discussed.

When considering the nature of the game, it’s easy to see how players can be injured. Sprains, broken bones, and bruises are definitely common. But more dangerous and less visible consequences lurk every time a player gets hit in the head. Unfortunately, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are becoming more and more common among football players.

What You Need to Know About U.S.-Canadian Cross-Border Laws

Published on Oct 1, 2018 at 12:27 pm in Cross-Border Law.

If you’re injured in a car accident, truck accident, or any other type of accident that results in personal injury in a country other than your country of residence, both the laws of the country the accident occurred in and the laws of your residential country will come into play. This is because any insurance coverage you have will be based in your country of residence, including medical insurance, work insurance, and auto insurance coverage.

When a legal case is filed that involves laws and policies from two separate countries, a concept known as cross-border law comes into play. Any laws that affect the claim and its settlement outcome must be taken into consideration during every step of the case. Oftentimes this requires multiple lawyers, attorneys, and law firms to work together while their companies are based in separate countries.

As you can begin to imagine, cross-border laws can be complex, especially when it comes to personal injury cases. There’s also the fact that if a case is settled in one country without the victim and/or the victim’s attorney checking to make sure that all other laws and policies from the victim’s country of residence have been considered, that victim may find themselves in another legal battle later—or worse yet, short-changed regarding a final settlement amount.
