What is personal Injury?
Anything that renders our client unable to work or live in the manner he or she did before the event. That could mean anything from a broken finger to a traumatic brain injury. It could be a psychological injury from an assault or abuse. Sadly, it could be a catastrophic injury and resulting paralysis from an accident. Whatever the case, we have over twenty years experience dealing with personal injury cases.
I've been injured in a car accident. What are my next steps?
First, seek medical attention. Then, call a knowledgeable Personal Injury lawyer.
What if I can't afford a lawyer?
We take your personal injury case on a contingent fee basis. That means you dont pay anything until it settles, no matter how long that takes.
How do I know if my claim is worth pursuing?
Dealing with an auto accident is stressful and time consuming. When you have been struggling with an injury, it's easy to want to escape the hassle and move on by settling your claim with ICBC. The right lawyer, however, will handle the stress but not compromise the outcome by settling too soon. ICBC lawyers are skilled. We have the expertise to negotiate with them for the fair compensation you deserve.
Whether you have been injured in an auto accident, at work, or involved in an assault, DWG Law Corp wants you to stop being a victim. With good legal representation you will be empowered to get the best treatment for your injuries, and the best settlement in the end.
The breakdown of the marriage was hard enough. How will I handle a legal fight too?
Even though you are understandably upset, now is not the time to drop the ball. True, time will heal the wounds but acting promptly and prudently now could save years of struggles. The beauty of a lawyer handling things is the objectivity and knowledge that can in some cases help the parties to understand the need for collaboration and mediation. If that is not possible, then a calm, professional head looking out for you is best.
What about our children? How can we minimize the negative impact on them?
We will assist you to reach a fair and equitable agreement as quickly as possible. When emotions are involved people say things they later regret. Having a lawyer who communicates on your behalf may make it easier for your spouse to hear you.
How can I be sure I will get a fair settlement?
There are no guarantees when these types of cases actually go to trial. That is why it is best to consult a professional who can properly assess the case.

My business partner is not abiding by our contract. Do I have any recourse?
