No Charges, No Expenses.
No Fees Unless We Win.
We handle every aspect of your injury claim, from filling out the initial claim forms on your behalf, to ensuring that you’re reimbursed for your out-of-pocket expenses.
Unlike other firms, we do so without any upfront fees, and at no extra charge to you. Our fees are collected only as a small percentage of your eventual settlement.
This means we don’t get paid unless you get paid.
Most personal injury firms charge a fee of 30-33% of your settlement.
If we do not go to Court, our fees are 20-25% depending on when we settle, which is significantly less than the industry standard, and another reason why many of the claims we handle are referred to us by former clients.
Our philosophy is that a 30% fee is too high, especially when some clients recover from their injuries and we settle their claim at an early stage; in such cases, since the lawyer performed less work, they should be charging a lower fee.
We Never Act For ICBC.
We Only Act For You.
Many personal injury lawyers supplement their practice by acting for ICBC as well. The result is a potential conflict, and clients may be left wondering whether their lawyer avoided a fight out of fear of losing ICBC’s business on other files.
At Goodman Law, we never act for ICBC or any other insurer. We are dedicated solely to helping injured plaintiffs receive the compensation they deserve.
We Fight To Maximize Your Settlement Before Trial.
We recognize that most clients do not want to go to court.
A trial can be a stressful and uncertain event, and that is why we work hard to recover the largest amount possible through the settlement process.
However, with our commitment and record of success, we will not hesitate to take your claim to a judge or jury if a reasonable settlement is out of reach.
Choose a law firm that has a record of going to trial – and winning. Not every lawyer has significant courtroom experience, and in such cases, ICBC may be inclined to stick to a lowball offer with the assumption that the lawyer and client will eventually give in.
We believe that our reputation among insurance companies as a firm that is always willing to take a claim to trial results in higher settlements for all of our clients.
