Navigating Minor Car Accident Injuries Under ICBC Regulation

Published on Sep 3, 2019 at 5:59 pm in Car Accidents.

The new ICBC Minor Injury Regulation hurts you if you’re in a car crash after April 1, 2019 and sustain minor injuries.

Here is what you need to know about minor injuries and ICBC regulations:

  • The new regulation affect anyone who was in a collision with a motor vehicle in British Columbia. This means that if you were a pedestrian, cyclist, a driver, or passenger of a car, truck, or motorcycle in a crash after April 1, 2019, the new regulation affects you.
  • If you have one or more of these injuries from the collision, the new regulation affects you:
    1. Cuts, scrapes and bruises
    2. Sprains or strains
    3. Pain
    4. Psychological or psychiatric illnesses
    5. Concussions
    6. Jaw injuries
    7. Whiplash
    8. Fractured or dislocated spine
  • If ICBC labels your injuries as minor, it can seriously limit your ability to make a claim for your injuries, and impact your ability to get treatment and recover.
  • We can fight ICBC when they say your injury is minor.

Here are the best things you can do after the collision to get out from the new regulation:

  • SEE YOUR DOCTOR.
    1. See them early and often. The most important thing you can do following a crash is to look after your own health and recovery. Tell them what hurts. Tell them if it keeps hurting. Tell your doctor if it isn’t getting better.
  • DON’T PUSH YOURSELF.
    1. If you cannot work, or if work is harder for you for 4 months, your injury is not minor. Talk to us about getting wage replacement while you recover.
  • MEET WITH US.
    1. ICBC’s minor injury law is designed to resolve cases quickly. Don’t let it cost you.
