About 1/3 of our clients have some degree of psychological injury. In addition to physical injuries sustained, here is a list of potential personal injuries that may also have psychological repercussions:
Automobile Collision. The most common circumstance is when you are injured as a result of a collision with a car or truck. The party that usually funds your award is ICBC.
Hazardous Conditions. Injuries can also occur as a result of somebody not taking care to look after an obvious hazard on their property such as ice on a sidewalk or a stairway in the wintertime or leaving a cracked, uneven sidewalk exposed.
Slip and Fall. This might include slipping on water or spilled juice at the grocery store.
Products Liability. This could be the result of a glass breaking in your hand upon examining it while at the store.
Collateral Damage. It could also be as a result of others fighting and you getting injured as collateral damage. It might even include an instance wherein you are injured because the bar or restaurant did not properly supervise and control other patrons or served them too much liquor.
There are many ways in which you could be injured where you have a right to collect money from the others who are responsible.
