Our Team

Vancouver Personal Injury Attorney

What We Do

Taylor & Blair was founded in 1993 by Graham Taylor and Kevin Blair, two of the most reputable personal injury attorneys in Vancouver. As a firm, we deal mainly with personal injury law, and since most injuries are the result of car accidents, almost 90% of our work is devoted to dealing with ICBC claims. However, there are dozens of other ways that a person can become injured (falling or slipping on driveways, floors, etc.). We are interested in helping our clients regain their footing both literally and figuratively through attaining the compensation that will help them recover from their losses.

Every personal injury case involves similar rules and steps. We have years of experience working with all forms of legal dispute resolution (negotiation, mediation and court) that exist in BC. Each day, we help people resolve their personal injury claims. But because the facts surrounding each circumstance are different, each case is unique and requires careful handling and expert examination. As some of the most experienced personal injury attorneys in Vancouver, we have decades of experience handling all kinds of injuries ranging from minor whiplash cases to serious brain injuries and even quadriplegia. We have successfully represented injury victims in cases involving the BC Provincial Court, BC Supreme Court, and the BC Court of Appeals.

When you hire us, we will be the professionals who will work on your file. The lawyer you meet with in your first meeting will most likely be the lawyer who handles your case until it is completed. You will work together with your lawyer and paralegal to sort through details and create a strong case. We take the time to make sure we fully understand the extent of your injuries, the legal issues involved in your case, explain your options to you, and keep you informed about the progress of your case.
Who we are

With over 40 years of combined experience helping injured people, each lawyer at the firm has developed a solid background as a qualified personal injury attorney practicing in Vancouver. We have worked almost exclusively as personal injury lawyers and have helped thousands of people to gain the compensation they deserve. We put the personal back into personal injury attorney, and work to represent injured people throughout the Vancouver area not their insurance companies. We feel strongly that if you have been injured in an accident you deserve lawyers that will explain your case so that you understand the process and can make informed decisions about your options. We provide excellent legal representation and we do everything we can to create an environment where you feel comfortable dealing with us and our staff. Open lines of communication help us to achieve the best possible results for you. Our job is to make sure that you get the compensation you deserve. We don't just care about your case we care about you and your situation as well.
