Hire Tim Louis – Vancouver Personal Injury Lawyer

Finding a first-class personal injury lawyer in Vancouver BC is no easy feat. The reality is there are plenty of law firms that focus on volume, with the goal being quick and easy settlements involving as little effort as possible.

A personal injury lawyer in the Greater Vancouver area who is willing to put in the time required to get to know a client, who is accessible and focused on keeping the client up-to-date at all times, and who starts with the attitude that a trial is inevitable because trials generally yield the biggest settlements… well, finding such a person is not as easy as it might seem. Then again, anyone who starts with a call to Tim Louis & Company is on the right track.

If you’ve suffered a personal injury through no fault of your own, you deserve compensation

It’s true! If you’ve been personally injured in any way by someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation. If someone has intentionally injured you in some way, you deserve compensation. If you’ve ever been harmed by a defective product or service, you deserve compensation.

And when any of the situations arise you deserve to have one of the best personal injury law firms in Vancouver and British Columbia in your corner… namely Tim Louis & Company.

25 years of experience

Tim Louis has been practising personal injury law for more than two decades, and nothing is as valuable in a personal injury case as experience. Dealing with ICBC claims constitutes a significant part of Tim’s practice, though he and his associates deal with all manner of personal injury lawsuits, including slips and falls, dog bites, assaults and any other instance caused by someone else.

For Tim, every case he undertakes becomes a personal fight on behalf of a valued client. He is always accessible, returns call promptly, and begins every case by getting to know the client involved. Tim’s clients are real people, not file folders and his ultimate goal is always to achieve the best possible result for them.

A personal injury suit is a strategic campaign, not a short-term skirmish

With Tim Louis and Company, there are no premature settlements. Every campaign starts with the setting of a trial date – a not-so-subtle signal that the case is going to go the distance, and that Tim is going to fight for every penny his client is entitled to in a settlement. In fact, settlement dollars aren’t even discussed until a client has fully recovered, or until a doctor says, “that’s as good as it’s going to get.” Only then can financial compensation be fairly determined.

In addition, every expert and report necessary to prove a client’s case will be presented, and Tim’s many years of practice, in combination with his superb reputation, ensures his clients have access to the best experts and any field.

To hire a personal injury lawyer, one needs to look at reputation, reviews online, summary of previous client’s experience with that lawyer, case experience, years in practice, lawsuit experience and more.
