Legal action when an accident occurs in a different country

Injury producing accidents occur every day throughout the world. While some may happen close to home, this is not always the case.

People who live near the Canadian and United States border, or who frequently travel between the two countries, may have experienced this firsthand.

In our last post we focused on the issues that are often to blame for fatal traffic accidents in British Columbia.
