There may be a time in life where you find yourself involved in a lawsuit. The litigation process can be long and complicated. The best course of action is to hire a lawyer from Chahal Priddle LLP in Kamloops to help you through the entire litigation process. We will attempt to help you with disputes such as:
1. Contract Disputes
When a contract dispute arises, it is often necessary to consult with a lawyer to discuss your options. At Chahal Priddle LLP, we provide wide-ranging services in this regard: review of documents and legal analysis; drafting of demand letters and negotiation with opposing parties; and filing court documents to initial formal litigation. If you have provided a service and not been paid, or believe you have a valid agreement that has not been adequately fulfilled, book a consultation with Chahal Priddle LLP to discuss how we may cater our legal services to fit your needs and reach a resolution.
2. Estate Litigation
The death of a family member can be an emotional and stressful time. However, this difficult situation can be exacerbated when a dispute arises between family members or close individuals over access, responsibility and control when it comes to the deceased person’s estate and assets. In British Columbia, the law presumes that closely-related individuals will be provided for in an estate document unless an intention is shown otherwise. If you are applying for an estate grant as an Executor named in a Will and the Will is being challenged, we can help defend the wishes of the deceased. Alternatively, if you are a family member who has been disinherited and believe that there is reason to question the validity of the estate documents being relied upon, or are being unfairly treated, we can represent you in your claim. No matter the estate issue, we can assess your situation and help you determine the best course of action to suit your particular circumstances.
3. Personal Injury -- Slip and Fall
As you are aware, not all injuries occur in a motor vehicle accident. We at Chahal Priddle LLP also represent clients who have been injured in an accident on public or private property. This can include what are known as “slip and falls”, accidents that occur when an individual is hurt when tripping over or falling on a hazard. The Occupier’s Liability Act in British Columbia provides that a person in control of the land or building where others may attend have a duty to take care that the premises is reasonably safe for people attending at that location. Oftentimes “slip and fall” injuries are difficult to initially judge, because it is not uncommon for the extent of head injuries, internal injuries or soft tissue damage to take some time to become clear. Our lawyers at Chahal Priddle LLP can help you to understand the wide range of issues that arise with Occupier’s liability matters and to determine if the facts of your case support a claim.
4. Insurance Claims
Fire and water claims are common in British Columbia; however, determining the extent of damage and fair compensation for a loss resulting from a claim is not a simple matter. When damage occurs to your property, a lawyer can help you determine the extent of your insurance coverage and advocate on your behalf with the insurance company managing your claim. At Chahal Priddle LLP, we can assist you in accessing all your coverage under your insurance agreement, and negotiate with your insurer to ensure you are adequately reimbursed for the loss you have suffered.
