We offer a free consultation, whenever and wherever is best for you, whether in our office, in hospital or in your home. Our lawyers have strong ties in small communities across British Columbia and can travel to you. It not necessary to live close by to retain our services. We meet with you, your family and your doctors, as required, wherever is most convenient for all.
It is in your best interest to contact us as soon as possible after your injury, but we are able to become involved at any point in your injury claim.
Once we have been retained and have met with you, we begin to collect any additional details about your case from resources such as accident reports, clinical records, and interviewing potential witnesses.
Our firm offers a variety of legal services in addition to personal injury claims, such as estate planning. Through our diverse practice areas, we are able to establish a committeeship or powers of attorney, to ensure you have the assistance from trusted loves ones that you require. This is all part of our service and commitment to you.
We continually track your progress and speak with you as often as necessary, ranging from daily interaction to a scheduled quarterly update. With Hammerberg, you will receive regular progress report phone calls from your lawyer, rather than a case manager. This sets us apart from many firms– our lawyers prefer to be directly involved with their clients.
Your legal team will include your Lead lawyer and their Legal Assistant, and often a second lawyer. Furthermore, our entire Personal Injury legal team is at your disposal, offering depth and breadth of experience, so you will not be left waiting for a call back. You can call your legal team at any time. We put your needs first.
In Spinal Cord Injury claims, enough time must pass to allow doctors to be in a position to assess your medical future before resolving your claim.
During your post-injury rehabilitation phase, you may require surgery. Medical treatment often goes through stages, each with its own recovery process, before you reach a stable condition with a determined prognosis.
Once you have reached a point of maximal medical recovery, your future medical needs can be determined. This is the stage when our lawyers are able to quantify the damages required to compensate you for your spinal cord injury.
Our lawyers are often able to obtain a fair settlement for your spinal cord injury claim without the need of a trial. If a fair settlement has not been offered, our experienced litigators are always prepared to take your case to trial. We prepare each claim for trial by gathering information along the way, so that our legal team has all the evidence required to achieve an excellent result for you in court.
