- Read all written correspondence sent by WorkSafeBC / WCB very carefully. If you do not understand statements in a decision letter seek legal advice.
- Pay attention to appeal deadlines, as extensions of time to appeal are difficult to obtain.
- If you do not understand your appeal rights, seek legal advice.
- Visit a regular General Practitioner/doctor as opposed to relying on various walk-in clinics. If your injury is serious, ask your doctor to refer you to an independent (of WorkSafeBC) specialist early on in the claims process.

I was referred to Mr. Gosal by one of his old clients. Mr. Gosal had won this man and his relatives case, resulting in a 100% WCB pension for both. I was told to prepare for a tough, expensive and long fight. It has taken several years, alot of frustration and ups and downs, but as Mr. Gosal told my wife and I, if we were patient and your doctor supports you the results will come. He was right! I am satisfied with my WCB pension which came with a big back pay amount. I would and already have encouraged anyone with a WCB pension to see Mr. Gosal. It was not cheap or quick but I am very happy with the result.
– Mr. N. Mann
