McComb Witten Empowers B.C. Car Accident Victims!
Are you looking for resources to help you with your ICBC injury claim?
Do you want to find out how accidents like yours should be handled?
Is ICBC downplaying your injuries? Are you having a hard time keeping up with your bills?
Is the stress of dealing with your claim affecting your recovery?
If you’ve been hurt in a car accident, you’re probably going through a tough time in your life. We’ve helped thousands of people who’ve been injured in car accidents, but we’ll never assume that we understand everything you’re going through before sitting down and spending some time getting to know you.
Maybe you want to talk about your situation. Or perhaps you’re interested in finding out how we’ve helped other people who’ve experienced car accidents and injuries similar to yours. Either way, we’d be glad to chat with you. We understand that accidents don’t always happen during office hours, so don’t worry about the time. Just call us.

What’s Your Situation?
That’s really where our conversation needs to start. Before we can determine how to best go about helping you, we need to find out a bit about what makes you tick. Of course we’ll need to talk about how your accident happened, what injuries you’ve suffered, and how the fallout from your accident has impacted your life. But before we get into all that, we need to find out what’s important to you—because what might be the best solution to one person’s problem isn’t necessarily what works for another.
The best place to start is with a telephone conversation. After talking over the phone, if we feel we can help you and you’re comfortable, then a face-to-face chat would be the next step.
Are You Only One Piece of the Puzzle?
We get it. When one family member gets hurt, the entire family suffers. That’s why we need to get to know not just you, but also your entire family. Quite frankly, a large part of our success over the years has resulted from focusing on how our clients’ injuries have affected their role in and obligations to their families. We also place a premium on investigating how your culture and background may affect the impact your injuries have on both you and your family.
It may sound a bit corny, but it’s really about developing a relationship of trust. Your injuries have probably had a significant impact on every aspect of your life—but we know from experience that before you’re going to share these very intimate details with us, we’re going to have to earn your trust.
What Language Do You Speak?
What language do you speak when you’re angry, sad, frustrated or in pain? What language do you speak when you talk about your hopes and dreams? Is it a language other than English? If so, why shouldn’t you be able to speak that language when you talk to your lawyer? The lawyers at McComb Witten have had the privilege of helping clients from a wide variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds over the years. We understand how important it is for our clients to be able to speak from the heart. How do we do it? We have experienced staff members who speak the following languages:
When you call, just ask to talk with a lawyer in the language you are most comfortable speaking. We’ll make it happen.

How Are You Feeling?
If you’ve been hurt in a car accident you’re probably in a lot of physical pain…but what about your emotional problems? Our experience tells us that people who’ve been hurt in car accidents can develop emotional problems which are often as bad as, or worse, than their physical injuries.
Are you struggling with fear, sadness, panic attacks, nightmares, or an overwhelming feeling that your pain and disability are never going to subside?
Please be clear: Your emotional disorders are very real. They aren’t something you should be ashamed of or reluctant to recognize as related to your car accident. Such disorders can include:
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Chronic Pain Disorders
Your emotional health is a serious issue when it comes to recovering from a car accident. Emotional problems can be very difficult to deal with—both for the injured person as well as their family—so it’s important that these problems not be overlooked or brushed under the carpet.
The first step in dealing with your emotional problems is to make sure that your lawyer is committed to making sure you get the treatment you need. The next step is to be sure that your lawyer has the experience necessary to ensure that you get fairly compensated for your emotional injuries.
How Will You Be Treated?
Law firms aren’t all the same when it comes to the way they treat their clients. Don’t assume that the “legal” end of your case and the feedback, support, understanding and guidance which you’re going to be provided with are one in the same—because they aren’t.
When you hire a law firm to handle your injury claim, you’re entering into an important relationship. It’s a relationship that you really need to understand and give some thought to. In fact, it’s important that you have a clear understanding of what you want out of this relationship before you enter into it.
Here are a few examples of the types of “lawyer relationship” issues you should consider and questions you should ask:
- You’ll probably have questions:
What process is in place for my questions to be answered when they come up?
- You’ll want to ensure that your lawyer is up to speed on how you’re progressing:
Is there a system of any kind to ensure that my lawyer is up to date on how I’m doing?
- You’ll want to be kept in the loop about ICBC’s approach towards your case:
How will I know what ICBC is telling my lawyer about my case?
- You’ll want to make sure that you’re doing everything necessary to protect your rights to fair compensation:
Will my lawyer be checking in with me to make sure I’m doing everything necessary to protect my rights?
- You’ll want to ensure that you lawyer has a handle on what your doctor thinks:
How will my lawyer and my doctor communicate?
The bottom line is that when you hire a lawyer to handle your ICBC injury claim you should be getting a lot more than “legal services.” It’s important that you make sure you’re getting everything you deserve.
