Car accidents and collisions happen every day and the impact on those involved can be devastating. Collisions can negatively affect your life, work, family and loved ones. Our lawyers have over 30 years of experience representing car accident survivors and achieve outstanding results.
Hammerberg’s car accident lawyers move quickly to complete full accident scene investigations and contact witnesses before evidence is lost. We work closely with you to recover both economic and non-economic damages so you can move forward in your life.
Our network of medical specialists, combined with our years of experience in properly identifying possible future medical complications, allows us to ensure that fair compensation is awarded for future medical issues that may not have even considered. Our primary concern is helping you recover and our goal is to get you the very best outcome when your claim concludes.
We’re one of BC’s largest groups of Personal Injury lawyers for a reason – we care deeply about the injured clients we represent. We get to know you well because the better we know you, the better we understand how your accident has affected you. We are trial lawyers and your interests are best served, in our opinion, by preparing your case as if it is going to be heard by a court. We have found this approach is the most effective for optimal results.
We look at all the facts of your case, from your injuries and the environment where the accident happened, to its ramifications on both your day-to-day life and future activities. This helps us build a strong case and determine what the long-term effects of your accident are likely to be. We diligently record all of your injuries and ensure you are tested for easily missed injuries such as concussions and PTSD. We also look for signs of injuries that can show up later or develop into degenerative issues.
Our commitment to client care includes assessing your needs for child and home care, or home adaptations, such as wheelchair ramps and roll-in showers. We deal with insurance companies, cut through red tape, secure income replacement and benefits, and arrange for the medical care and therapy you need to heal. We free you up to focus on your recovery while we work to ensure the best possible outcome for your future.
Our lawyers and staff genuinely want to make a positive difference in the lives of our injured clients. We are informal, relaxed and empathetic in our approach to client care, yet formidable litigators in a courtroom.
Our role is to be your advocate and to be involved at every step of your progress, including coordinating access to medical equipment, occupational therapists, and programs to promote your financial, social, physical and emotional well-being.
In British Columbia, you have two years from the date of the accident to commence legal proceedings, or your claim will be barred.
Injuries, and their resulting effects on work, social and recreational activities, can worsen over time – it’s important to know your rights and the strict time limits that apply.
Hammerberg’s car accident injury lawyers represent you on a contingency fee basis, so you do not pay legal fees until your claim is resolved positively.
You do not have to live nearby to access our services. Our lawyers can travel to you from the outset.

We put your needs first and will meet with you, your family and your doctors, as needed.
It is common for accident survivors to have trouble piecing together the details of what happened. We go to great lengths to establish fault in accidents and dispatch an investigative team to gather evidence from cameras and locate witnesses to support the facts of your claim.
We employ experienced accident reconstruction engineers who analyze everything from road conditions to seat belt placement, in order to build a strong case on your behalf and reduce the chances of evidence being discredited. We leverage all these facts and our trial-tested negotiating skills to maximize the value of your claim.
