Were You Injured in Either a Minor or Major Car Accident in Canada or the US?

Countless factors can contribute to a motor vehicle accident. Drivers can be affected by weather, debris on the road, poor road design or defective auto parts. When the accident is caused by the negligence of another driver, the entire situation can become frustrating. A knowledgeable lawyer can examine your case, and provide detailed guidance regarding the legal process and your options for monetary recovery.

With offices in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Seattle, Washington, Cross Border Law is prepared to provide skilled representation to clients in Canada and the United States. We understand the nuances of the law in both countries and can advise our clients on how best to proceed. It is our goal to resolve the matter efficiently through negotiation with the insurers to recover the full and fair monetary compensation for our clients. If we cannot reach a resolution through negotiation, however, we are prepared to pursue the matter in court for the benefit of our injured clients.

REPRESENTING CLIENTS IN THE FULL RANGE OF ACCIDENT TYPES

Whether your accident was caused by a drunk driver, road debris, an inattentive driver, a defective part or a road design flaw, our firm can help. We have experience representing clients injured in hit-and-run accidents as well as those injured by reckless driversor drivers who were speeding. Additionally, drivers who failed to follow posted traffic signs such as stop signs or yield signs can cause severe accidents. We have pursued claims against the Washington State Department of Transportation for negligent highway design and maintenance, and we have sued various tire manufacturers for unsafe automobile and motorcycle tires that caused serious, life-changing injuries. We have also successfully pursued claims against Washington bars and taverns for negligently overserving alcohol to drivers who subsequently cause accidents.

Serious accidents can lead to life-changing injuries. Injuries such as brain trauma, amputation or paralysis can impact the entire family and challenge your ability to live without constant medical attention. A knowledgeable lawyer can fight on your behalf to ensure that you recover the monetary benefits available to you.

Can an Attorney Handle Cases in Both the US and Canada?

Yes. But It takes a firm with Knowledge of the Law on both sides of the Border.

Lawyers For International Insurance Issues

Given the proximity of British Columbia and Washington State, and the ease of travel between them, many people who cross the border each day end up suffering injuries in a “foreign” country. Whether you are commuting to work, taking a short trip or even visiting a friend, the potential for a motor vehicle accident exists.

Unfortunately, the legal process for international accidents contains an additional layer of complexity. Throughout the history of our practice, the lawyers at Cross Border Law have endeavoured to become skilled at representing clients in both Canada and the United States. We understand the subtle legal nuances as well as the major administrative differences between the two countries.

Lawyers in Washington State, for example, might not understand how ICBC underinsured claims work. Additionally, there are significant strategic reasons for negotiating a settlement in one country before the other.
