Expert Lawyer on Your Team
Angela Price-Stephens works closely with accident victims and their medical treatment providers to ensure that all injuries are properly diagnosed and treated, that appropriate rehabilitative services are available, and that adaptive technologies for in-home living assistance and mobility are well suited to each client’s needs.
We also work to secure payment for treatment of peripheral injuries and medical conditions experienced during an extended stay in a rehab hospital or at home. These range from bedsores and bladder infections to serious problems with neuropathic pain, autonomic dysreflexia and the emotional problems that many people encounter during the adjustment to paralysis.
We monitor the payment of ICBC benefits to make sure that the treatment and rehabilitation benefits available under Part 7 are not diverted toward reimbursing the Medical Service Plan for primary medical care.
Our client service goes beyond focusing on a client’s immediate and apparent physical injuries. We make sure that the effects, such as chronic pain, reduced mobility, and psychological impacts, are also acknowledged and that appropriate strategies (e.g., pain management, mobility supports, and counselling) are put in place as part of an overall treatment plan. With over 25 years of experience in complex injury claims, including claims against doctors and health authorities, Angela Price-Stephens understands the importance of effective and early rehabilitation, and the need for long-term financial planning.
