Since 1987 Hoogbruin & Company has handled all manner of injury and wrongful death cases throughout British Columbia.
Our mission is to give you the best quality legal representation, to work with your family physician and other treating medical professionals to facilitate the best possible care for your speedy recovery, and to maximize the value of your final settlement or judgment.
We exclusively represent injured people and their families
It is our responsibility to ensure that you are kept fully informed and that your questions are answered promptly and quickly. In the lawyer/client relationship the lawyer is to provide advice and the client provides instructions. You are the boss. It is our responsibility to ensure that you are informed when it is your turn to make a decision.
Our lawyers and staff offer a personal approach to winning your case. We know what a serious injury can mean to you and your family. As a client, we want to know how the crash has affected your life. We will discuss all aspects of your case with you. Helping you through this difficult time is our commitment. We are always available to answer your questions and will always keep you informed.
Our Fee Structure
Initial consultations are free. When you first contact us we start with a short free phone call to determine if your legal problem is one we can help you with. If it sounds like it is, we will set up an initial in-person consultation, also free, to explore your options in more detail.
Our fees are on a percentage basis. According to the Legal Profession Act, the most a law firm can charge a client in a car crash case is 331/3 % of the recovery (settlement or judgment). On most cases we charge 30% but we take into account a number of factors before determining the fee percentage. Factors that we consider in determining our fee percentage include: whether liability is at issue ( i.e. is the crash clearly the other driver’s fault ), the amount of vehicle damage, the extent of the injury, the time off work, the amount of treatment required, the extent of permanent injury or disability, and the complexity of the medical evidence.
The legal team of Hoogbruin & Company will do everything to ensure that you are treated fairly and with respect.
