Why You Need An ICBC Settlement Lawyer
If you are injured as a result of a car accident in BC you may have an ICBC Claim. You need an ICBC Settlement Lawyer to deal with ICBC.
Generally, if you are injured in a car accident in British Columbia, regardless of who is at fault, ICBC must provide accident benefits (Part 7 Benefits) to cover medical and rehabilitation expenses up to a maximum of $150,000 or up to $300,000.00 for accidents that happen after January 1, 2018. These accident benefits can include expenses such as physiotherapy or chiropractor treatments, medications, home support services, and medical equipment. In addition, if you are unable to work as a result of your injuries, you may be entitled to wage loss benefits.
Types Of ICBC Injury Claims
In making an ICBC Claim you may be entitled to an award for pain and suffering, special damages (out of pocket expenses), wage loss, cost of future care expenses, and future loss of earning capacity.
If the damage to the vehicles involved is minor, ICBC may be skeptical of your claim for injuries.
