RITA RODGER'S STORY

WHEN THE UNEXPECTED HAPPENS

Recently, the law in BC has changed to prevent claims being brought by injured victims of car accidents. However, the law has not changed as it relates to injuries from other causes, including sexual and other assaults, slips and falls, animal attacks or mishaps, products liability and more.

Dealing with the aftermath of injuries received in any accident through another person’s negligent behaviour can be emotionally and financially challenging as well as time-consuming. If you weren’t at fault and you want to pursue compensation through a claim with an insurance company, an individual or company, RDM may be able to help.

With our knowledge of BC injury law and years of experience dealing with insurance companies, we can help you get the compensation you deserve in a timely and professional manner. Our team of legal professionals understand your rights as the victim of an accident and can advise you on what to expect as we guide you through the claims process. Having an experienced personal injury lawyer working with you from the beginning is critical to achieving a successful outcome in your personal injury claim.

In over 50 years of practice, RDM Lawyers have successfully handled thousands of personal injury claims including:

Head injuries (from mild trauma to severe brain damage)
Paraplegia, quadriplegia and other neurologic injuries
Broken bones
Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries
Psychological injuries
Neurologic Injuries

Damages can be recovered for:
Pain and suffering
Out of pocket expenses
Wage loss
Costs of future medical care and treatment
Loss of future earning capacity and opportunities

As your personal injury lawyers, we can advise you on how to proceed with your claim and support you throughout the entire settlement process, including advocating for you in court if necessary. Contingency fees are available in most cases. This means you don’t pay anything up front for our services but only once a settlement is reached.

If you’re pursuing a personal injury claim, call RDM. We’ve got a lawyer for that.

Fees

At RDM we strive to be transparent in our billing. Personal Injury matters are typically billed at a contingency rate of 30% of amounts recovered if the matter settles at least three months prior to trial and 33% if settled within three months of trial or after the lawyer has prepared for trial. There are also limited circumstances in which we may assist you on an hourly basis, which ranges from $200-$600 depending on skill, experience and specialty of the lawyer(s) involved.
