VANCOUVER, Aug. 12, 2015 /CNW/ - LexisNexis® Canada, a leading provider of information and technology solutions, today launched a Personal Injury module focused on British Columbia for its practical guidance solution, Lexis Practice AdvisorSM Canada. The fourteenth module to be released since 2013, it will help personal injury lawyers and their teams to produce more in less time with comprehensive guidance and "how-to" documents. The Personal Injury (B.C.) module features contributions from Michael Slater, Q.C., Anthony Vecchio, Q.C., and their team at Slater Vecchio LLP in Vancouver.

Loik Amis, CEO at LexisNexis Canada, said this latest module release addresses a continued demand for practical guidance in a key practice area.
