Since the arrival of “No-Fault” ICBC insurance on May 1, 2021, those who are injured in a motor vehicle accident after this date are no longer entitled to sue for compensation unless the at-fault party is convicted of a crime or the injuries are deemed to be catastrophic.
Contact us to see if your claim meets these eligibility requirements.
Those who are injured in a car, bus or motorcycle accident prior to May 1, 2021 may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages and loss of future earning capacity.
If you were a driver at the time of the accident, a successful claim requires you to establish that the other driver is at least partially at fault for the collision.
If you were injured as a passenger, you may be required to sue the driver of the vehicle you occupied. While that person is often a friend or family member, you can rest assured that ICBC is financially responsible for conducting the lawsuit and settling your claim.
Many claimants believe that the ICBC adjuster is “on their side” and will represent their interests. This is not the case. ICBC is routinely accused of using specialized tactics to deny legitimate claims, from unfairly blaming the accident on the injured claimant, to dispatching their own team of medical experts to marginalize the claimant’s injuries.
This is in direct conflict with your right to fair compensation, and a compelling reason why one should always consult a lawyer prior to dealing with ICBC.
In the event ICBC unfairly finds you at fault, we retain skilled investigators to interview witnesses and secure critical evidence as early as possible, while employing specialized engineers and the latest accident reconstruction software to ensure that your side of the story is accurately and persuasively presented.
With over 35 years of experience, we have the skills and resources to substantiate your claim and maximize your compensation.
