Suffering From Chronic Pain Due to an Auto Accident?

Cross Border Law wants to help.

Depending on the severity of the accident and the nature of the resulting injuries, an individual might suffer from chronic pain well after the actual injury has healed. Chronic pain can be debilitating and disruptive in nearly every aspect of a person’s life — personal and professional.

With offices in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Seattle, Washington, Cross Border Law is well-equipped to represent clients in Canada and the United States. No matter your residency or where the accident occurred, our legal team is prepared to provide exemplary client service throughout the legal process of monetary recovery. By working directly with the insurers, our goal is to reach a beneficial settlement in a quick, efficient manner. Through the history of our practice, we have gained a clear understanding of the intricacies of personal injury law in both countries.


Individuals suffering from chronic pain will likely notice an immediate diminishment of their quality of life. This pain can keep them up at night, make it difficult to concentrate or even make it impossible to sit for long periods at a desk or in a car. Whether the injury is to a limb or the back or results in nerve damage, a knowledgeable lawyer can provide the answers and legal assessment that you need. Depending on the type of accident and the resulting injuries, you might be entitled to recover monetary compensation for lost wages, medical treatment, property damage, and pain and suffering.

What is UMP [Underinsured Motorist Protection]?

By Cross Border Law

Underinsured motorist protection (UMP) is an insurance coverage that drivers can purchase to protect themselves in the event that injuries were caused by a motorist who is insufficiently insured. The basic UMP coverage is $1,000,000, but individuals can purchase additional coverage if they so choose.

Facing a catastrophic injury can be emotionally and financially devastating. Serious injuries might require multiple surgeries, hospital stays or lengthy physical therapy. If the accident occurred in the United States, an injured individual might quickly accrue hundreds of thousands of dollars of medical debt. One of the benefits of UMP is that the coverage extends to accidents outside of British Columbia. Every ICBC-insured driver, passenger and member of household has access to $1,000,000 in UMP coverage. An additional $1,000,000 in coverage is available for a low annual premium. Since drivers in Washington State are only required to maintain $25,000 in third party insurance coverage (and many drivers have no insurance at all), it is imperative that Canadians traveling in the U.S. understand how UMP comes into play. The potential benefits can be life-changing.

A Simple Traffic Violation Can Produce Serious Results.

By: Cross Border Law

Countless factors can contribute to a motor vehicle accident. Drivers can be affected by weather, debris on the road, poor road design or defective auto parts. When the accident is caused by the negligence of another driver, the entire situation can become frustrating. A knowledgeable lawyer can examine your case, and provide detailed guidance regarding the legal process and your options for monetary recovery.

With offices in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Seattle, Washington, Cross Border Law is prepared to provide skilled representation to clients in Canada and the United States. We understand the nuances of the law in both countries and can advise our clients on how best to proceed. It is our goal to resolve the matter efficiently through negotiation with the insurers to recover the full and fair monetary compensation for our clients. If we cannot reach a resolution through negotiation, however, we are prepared to pursue the matter in court for the benefit of our injured clients.


Whether your accident was caused by a drunk driver, road debris, an inattentive driver, a defective part or a road design flaw, our firm can help. We have experience representing clients injured in hit-and-run accidents as well as those injured by reckless driversor drivers who were speeding. Additionally, drivers who failed to follow posted traffic signs such as stop signs or yield signs can cause severe accidents. We have pursued claims against the Washington State Department of Transportation for negligent highway design and maintenance, and we have sued various tire manufacturers for unsafe automobile and motorcycle tires that caused serious, life-changing injuries. We have also successfully pursued claims against Washington bars and taverns for negligently overserving alcohol to drivers who subsequently cause accidents.

Serious accidents can lead to life-changing injuries. Injuries such as brain trauma, amputation or paralysis can impact the entire family and challenge your ability to live without constant medical attention. A knowledgeable lawyer can fight on your behalf to ensure that you recover the monetary benefits available to you.
