Being involved in a car accident in Surrey is a stressful experience. It’s even more terrifying if you or someone you love is seriously injured in the collision. Even though it may feel like the last thing you want to do, speaking to a car accident lawyer as soon as possible is the best way to protect your legal rights.
Klein Lawyers represents auto accident victims in Surrey and surrounding British Columbia communities. For more than 20 years, our skilled lawyers have helped clients resolve their Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) claims and recover the compensation that they deserve. We can help you, too.
Car accident victims who are injured due to no fault of their own may be eligible to file an ICBC claim for compensation against the at-fault driver. Benefits can cover accident-related costs such as medical bills, prescription medications, assistive devices and rehabilitation. You may also be entitled to partial compensation for lost wages if your injuries kept you from working. But the amount paid can vary greatly, which is why it’s important to have an experienced car accident lawyer by your side.
Our ICBC lawyers handle hundreds of car accident claims for injured people throughout British Columbia every year. We also work with clients who have also been hurt in bicycle accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle crashes and pedestrian accidents. Our goal is to make sure that you obtain the compensation you need for financial, physical and emotional healing.

Surrey is the second-largest city in British Columbia, falling only behind Vancouver. The thriving community’s population is projected to exceed Vancouver’s by 2030. But with that growth will also come more traffic — and an increased likelihood of car accidents. There were an estimated 330,000 motor vehicle collisions in British Columbia in a single recent year, and 64,000 of those accidents resulted in an injury or death.
At Klein Lawyers, we know that motor vehicle accidents are a problem in Surrey. The intersection of 88th Avenue and King George Boulevard is ranked among the top 10 crash sites in the Lower Mainland, according to the most recent ICBC statistics. Other dangerous intersections along the King George corridor are at 72nd and 64th Avenues, and major arteries such as Highway 1, Highway 99 and Highway 15 bring countless motorists through Surrey every day.

Transportation officials are working to account for the expected influx of people by laying the groundwork for the Surrey light rail transit system in the city’s busiest areas. Road improvements are also expected to ease congestion in the coming years.
A car accident happens fast. The moments after impact are often confusing, leaving many accident victims wondering what to do next. If you are able, there are several other things you can do at the accident scene to protect your legal rights.
Navigating the ICBC claim system can be tricky. It’s rarely as simple as filing a claim and getting a reasonable settlement. Most people are offered settlements far below what they are actually entitled to. Unfortunately, many are duped into accepting the amount because they don’t realize that they are being lowballed or are too discouraged by the process to keep fighting.
Our seasoned ICBC car accident lawyers know the tricks that adjusters will try to use to lessen your settlement payout. We will build a strong claim that proves the true impact that the car accident has had on your life.
