Richard Parsons is licensed to practice law in British Columbia, Washington State and California.
We can help no matter which US state your accident occurred in
Most jurisdictions in the US allow motorists to carry extremely low insurance liability policies, and BC residents may have Underinsured Motorist Protection (“UMP”) coverage to protect them if the person who injures them in the US does not have enough insurance. It is important that a lawyer dealing with a cross-border claim understands the law in both jurisdictions and can protect clients’ rights by representing clients in both jurisdictions.
