Hanson & Co is the experienced and approachable law firm to help you if you have been hurt due to someone else’s negligence.
“I was born in North Vancouver and have lived my life on the North Shore” says Jim Hanson. It makes sense that his busy and growing law firm is in the heart of North Vancouver at 1401 Lonsdale. Hanson & Co also includes two senior level Associate Lawyers (Lawrence O’Neill and John Green), four paralegal/legal assistants, a receptionist and a bookkeeper.
“We represent anyone who has been injured, suffered pain, loss of income or loss of opportunities as a result of someone else’s negligence. Our clients range from people injured in car accidents, boating, cycling or motorcycle accidents. We only represent the plaintiff (the injured person) – not Government, ICBC or Insurance Companies
“We are the largest personal injury law firm on the North Shore,” adds Jim. “We are highly experienced and have both the background and the resources to ensure that injury cases are handled properly and that our clients are treated right.”
Hanson & Co is involved in and supports numerous community organizations. This community involvement has shaped the core values of the company.
“We deal with people at very traumatic times in their life,” Jim explains. “They are suffering physical injuries and resulting emotional issues that affect their finances and even their family. We place ourselves into that situation in a supportive way. We focus on being approachable, listening with compassion, empathy and connecting with our clients, and connecting them to the professionals who can best assist them in their recovery, in addition to dealing with ICBC and/or the party responsible for the harm on our client’s behalf.”
Making the law accessible to all is also a priority. “We take cases with merit on a contingency basis,” says Jim. “We get paid when the client gets paid, so there is no expensive up-front retainer to pay.”
Hanson & Co now has a free app for smartphones and tablets available in the app store under ‘Hanson & Co.’
“We know that when people have been in an accident it is upsetting and sometimes hard to think clearly,” says Jim. “We suggest that people download the app—we hope they don’t need it but if they do it provides a place to capture the details of the incident such of the photos, location, witness names and phone numbers, nearest hospital, taxi’s, towing services and more.”
