"The BC Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Practice Manual is rightfully known as 'the bible for personal injury lawyers.'  I have practised personal injury law for 35 years and still consult it weekly. The only frustrating part is that even though we have two copies at my firm of six lawyers, I can never find it in our library, because it is always in someone else's office being used!  You should not practice personal injury law without this manual, even if you're not doing car accident claims." – Alison Murray, QC, Murray Jamieson Barristers & Solicitors

With this resource, you will be able to:

  • understand the intricacies of the Insurance (Vehicle) Act and Regulation and the legal principles that apply to your case
  • get to the leading cases  you need for your client's case
