Personal Injury Claims In British Columbia


For over 30 years the lawyers at Taylor & Blair LLP have been dealing with personal injury claims in British Columbia.


Personal injury claims can differ greatly depending on the circumstances of the accident.  For example, while most personal injury cases in British Columbia have a 2-year limitation period in which you can bring a claim, personal injury claims against a municipality require notice to the municipality within 60 days of the accident or else are related claims are barred.  Another unique aspect of British Columbia law is while it is not required for motor vehicle accident claims, for all other claims tortfeasor (or one who caused the accident) must pay back any health care costs paid under the medical service plan (MSP) to the Plaintiff and have that payment approved by the British Columbia Ministry of Health in order for any settlement or judgment to have effect.
