David had new job designing movie sets and was driving to his first set location when a van went through a stop sign and smashed into his car. He was dazed, but when he came to he realized the other car had fled the scene. When the ambulance arrived he noticed his forehead was bleeding, he was taken to the hospital and tests confirmed that he had suffered a brain injury.
In the days that followed the police were not able to find the other driver and David was having serious problems with his memory, concentration, and body wide pain. David lost his job and his friends and family noticed that he was a very different person. ICBC denied the claim and told David to try workers compensation for which he did not qualify.
David’s good friend had hired Holness Law Group years ago when he suffered a serious back injury in a car accident. He told David that Holness Law Group, after having two other lawyers, resuscitated his case. He was impressed with the professionalism, preparedness and the final result was outstanding.
David hired Holness Law Group and they immediately began an investigation into the accident. The other driver was eventually found, David obtained disability benefits from ICBC and the case settled for much more than ICBC had originally offered. David knew he would never fully recover from such a serious injury but settlement of his case gave him some closure.
Through the benefits obtained and the settlement negotiated by Holness Law Group, David was able to afford to pay for his brain injury treatment, continues to get disability payments and can afford to explore retraining for another job in the move industry.
