Amandeep S. Sanghera B.A., LL.B.

“After my accident I had constant neck and back pains. I felt sad most of the time and became very anxious about
the future. ICBC said I was overreacting and offered $17,000. My case settled for $400,000 at mediation.” – MR. S.
“The damage to my car was only $700. ICBC said I could not have been injured; but I was. My lawyer finalized my
claim for $28,000 plus expenses.” – MISS M.
“ICBC offered me $32,000 to finish my case. I was off work for 6 months and saw a specialist because of my jaw
injury. I couldn’t mop the floor or clean our bathroom without help from my children. I received $200,000 through
my lawyer’s efforts.” – MRS. S.
“The damage to my vehicle was about $1,700. ICBC said this was a Low Velocity Impact (LVI) and refused to pay me for
my injuries and physio costs. My lawyer obtained more than $45,000 for me.” – MRS. B.
“A car hit me as I walked across the street. ICBC blamed me because of the colour of my clothing. My lawyer worked
hard and obtained necessary evidence. My case settled for over $300,000.” – MRS.
