Legal assistance from Vancouver personal injury lawyers
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury from a motor vehicle accident that was caused by another driver, Vancouver auto accident lawyer Kevin G. Staples can assist you in a number of ways that include the following:
- Compensatory damages are payments for past and future economic losses related to an injury, such as medical expenses and lost wages. An injury lawyer in Vancouver can help you to recover compensatory damages from the person who injured you. Juries and judges can also award compensatory damages for pain, suffering, and mental anguish.
- Punitive damages are sometimes awarded in court to punish the defendant or to prevent him or her from doing the same thing again. It is more difficult to be awarded punitive damages in court, because it must be proven that the defendant’s conduct was worse than simple negligence. For example, a car accident must involve such factors as driver incompetence, excessive speed, intoxication above a certain limit, or knowingly driving an unsafe vehicle. If any of these factors were involved, a skilled Vancouver injury attorney can present the facts persuasively in court.
Kevin Staples also has thorough experience dealing with specific local and federal government sectors and can represent you before the Department of Labor and Industries if necessary.
