Loss of Housekeeping Services

If a homemaker is injured in a car accident rendering him/her unable to pursue the various household chores that he/she once did for the family there may be a loss of housekeeping services award. Alternatively, an award for a housekeeper may be advanced in the future care claim.

In most situations ICBC resists this sort of claim just like they try to resist other future heads of damages. The claim is only applicable in a situation where an individual suffers lasting injuries rending them in essence partially or fully disabled from providing homemaking services.

It will be highly unlikely that ICBC will pay this head of damage to a self-represented litigant so to pursue this claim you will definitely need a lawyer. Also, usually an economist provides the calculation as to what the loss entails.
