At Bronson Jones & Company LLP, we work efficiently and effectively and will deal with you compassionately and fairly. As one of the largest personal injury law firms in BC, our services encompass:
A free initial consultation; and
No out-of-pocket upfront retainer fee
At the consultation, we will also discuss how we collect fees, on a contingency basis. Lawyers who work on a contingency basis only get paid legal fees if compensation is obtained for you, and those fees are derived as a percentage of your compensation.
If we take your case and you hire us to represent you, we will prepare a written contingency fee agreement. The agreement will outline how we will help you and what we expect in return. You will be provided with a copy of this contract so that there is no confusion.
In most cases, our office will handle the expenses (known as disbursements) involved with respect to starting and running a personal injury lawsuit. Typically disbursements include the applicable necessary expenses such as:
Filing court documents;
Hiring expert witnesses;
Obtaining medical records, ambulance and police reports;
Conducting vehicle searches; and
Faxes, photocopies and postage.
We pay the cost of these items for you and wait to collect them from the settlement or court-awarded funds. The BC Supreme Court Rules permit the recovery of most (but not all) disbursements from ICBC as part of the settlement of a personal injury claim. If you have questions about disbursements please ask your lawyer and he or she will be pleased to answer them.
Where possible, we will seek to recover disbursements from ICBC (or the other insurer) as part of the resolution to your case. In cases where this is not possible, the remainder is deducted from the settlement monies we attain for you.
