No Charges, No Expenses.
No Fees Unless We Win.
We handle every aspect of your ICBC injury claim, from filling out the initial claim forms on your behalf, to pursuing reimbursement for your treatment expenses.
If you haven’t done so yet, we will also call ICBC Dial A Claim to report the accident for you. This ensures that no statements are given that could compromise your eventual settlement.
Unlike other firms, we do all of this without any upfront fees, and at no extra charge. Our flat fee is 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.
Our fees are 20-25% depending on when we settle.
Our philosophy is that a 30% fee is too high, especially when many 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 claimants 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.
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.
98% of our cases settle, and while we do not publish the results of those settlements, click here for a sample of our recent achievements in the courtroom.
Your Health Is As Important
As Any Financial Award.
Not only do we handle your entire claim so you can focus on getting better, but we also connect you with leading medical doctors and rehabilitation facilities.
With our 25 years of experience, we’ve come to establish the relationships that ensure you receive the most comprehensive and timely expert opinions and medical care.
For clients who require treatments such as physiotherapy or massage and are unable to afford the expense, we are generally able to offer some financial support as an advance on their eventual settlement. We are one of only a few firms across the province that regularly offers this benefit.
