Your brain controls your thoughts, movements and behavior. This is why any injury to your brain can harm your mental and physical health in many different ways – and ultimately prove to be very costly.

For more than 20 years, we have provided valuable assistance to those in Vancouver and throughout British Columbia who have suffered brain damage and other severe, life-changing harm in an accident.
We know how to seek the maximum amount in an ICBC settlement and, if necessary, take cases to court in order to fight for what our clients deserve. We are ready to get to work for you today. Call or submit our online form for a free consultation.
You may read or hear from others that you do not need a lawyer to pursue an ICBC claim after a motor vehicle accident. This is technically true. However, in reality, you should always get help from a lawyer – especially if you or a loved one has suffered severe harm such as a brain injury.
Through the years, Klein Lawyers has obtained millions of dollars in ICBC settlements on behalf of our clients, including those who were impacted by mild to severe brain injuries. We believe we can make a major difference in the amount you obtain in your case.
