Daniel Corrin

Daniel is one of the principal lawyers at Parsons Corrin LLP.  He has 20 years of experience in brain injury litigation.  He has helped clients with significant brain injuries and other catastrophic injuries.  Daniel has extensive trial experience, including trials relating to “mild”, “moderate” and “severe” traumatic brain injuries, as well as spinal cord injury, malpractice and “shaken baby syndrome”.  He has prosecuted and tried many motor vehicle cases, for a wide variety of injuries.  Most have resulted in judgments in the multi-million dollar range.

Daniel is very involved in the brain injury community and the Trial Lawyers Association of BC (TLABC).  He has been a TLABC board member for over 10 years.  Within the brain injury community, he has taken on an advisory role for community brain injury associations, volunteered his legal services and assisted brain injury groups all over the province.

Daniel is active in the legal, medical and brain injury communities.  He has organized and chaired many conferences to educate lawyers.  He has co-chaired or spoken at BC’s leading legal brain injury conference on multiple occasions.  Daniel has chaired many legal conferences for the Trial Lawyers Association of BC.  He has been invited to speak at the International Mental Health and the Law medical conferences in both Rome and Prague.  He has spoken on the issues of brain injury, pain, competence, life expectancy and other legal issues in many forums.  These include the Pacific Coast Brain Injury Conference, GF Strong Grand Rounds, Vancouver General Hospital (VGH), and for the BC Occupational Therapists, vocational planners and many others.

Daniel was an author for the Continuing Legal Education publication of the British Columbia Motor Vehicle Accident Claims practice manual and has written articles for the Lawyer’s Weekly, Headline and other publications.  He was a long-standing member on the board of Family Services of Greater Vancouver.

Daniel attended the University of British Columbia (UBC) for his undergraduate degree and the University of Victoria (UVic) for his LLB degree.

More important than his legal expertise, he is proud of his direct work with hundreds of injured individuals and their families going from the hospital to the courthouse and maintaining contact after the case is done.  To prove the cases of those he has represented, Daniel has proudly spent thousands of hours listening to survivors, being in their homes, and doing his best to advocate for those who have suffered serious personal injuries.  Being able to advocate and genuinely help people following serious injury has been the most rewarding and motivating parts of Daniel’s career.
