“Our firm practises and focuses on actions that are exclusively in the interest of human beings as opposed to in the interest of governments or other large institutions.” declares Rajinder Sahota, partner at Acheson Sweeney Foley Sahota LLP.
At Acheson Sweeney Foley Sahota (ASFS), a leading British Columbia personal injury law firm, people always come first. “Our firm practises and focuses on actions that are exclusively in the interest of human beings as opposed to in the interest of governments or other large institutions,” declares RajinderSahota, practising lawyer and partner at the firm. He describes the firm as a “plaintiff-side litigation boutique.”
For more than 35 years, ASFS has represented injured people in claims against insurance companies and government agencies that want to settle for the least amount of money possible. “We practice primarily in personal injury; that includes complex medical malpractice claims, child abuse claims against the government and others, punitive damages claims for wrongful denial of disability benefits, human rights abuse claims in prisons, product liability actions, municipal liability actions for public spaces, and motor vehicle claims from the mild to the catastrophic,” says Sahota.
Coming back to the description of a plaintiffs’-side litigation boutique, Sahota proudly states that his firm’s focus is on applying the law in an empathetic way. “That means representing people as opposed to corporate interests and trying to see that justice is done for human beings.” Every single case at ASFS is prepared for trial instead of essentially trying to settle cases and avoiding trial. The lawyers work hard to negotiate a just and fair settlement for their injured clients, in a timely manner. “We prepare for trial and proceed towards trial, and that approach to litigation on behalf of our clients results in much more fair and equitable settlements for our clients.”
A thorough and client-focussed approach is one of the many reasons that the firm has experienced significant success in most cases, particularly in complex liability cases, class action lawsuits, cases relating to serious motor vehicle accidents, and those involving children or infants.
Sahota’s advice to those seeking the services of a law firm is to find counsel that is a good fit for them. “Someone who has the same sort of interest at heart and is interested in seeking justice on their behalf as opposed to just going through the motions,” he adds.
Make ASFS your top and trusted choice for injury-related litigation services. They also offer free consultations and work on contingency, which means they don’t get paid until your case is settled. Acheson Sweeney Foley Sahota has offices in Victoria, Surrey and Courtenay.
