Acumen Law’s Kyla Lee kicks off the first episode of People of BC’s Justice System — a new podcast focusing on the personalities and roles in the B.C.’s legal world.
In our debut episode, Kyla talks to lawyer Chris Carta from Trial Lawyers Advocacy Group about what child support matters get litigated in B.C., and poses a legal conundrum around how far you can push responsibility in personal injury cases.
In this episode, Carta discusses unique situations that may limit your car insurance coverage with ICBC, the difference between physical and psychological injuries, how compensation matters are decided if you are witness or are in an accident, and how reimbursement works when a traffic accident affects something not directly related to the collision itself.
Carta also talks about his work in family law — how people try to shirk their responsibility to pay child support, how much is expected as payment, and how personal income gets determined in family law cases.
