Motor Vehicle Accident
In British Columbia, injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident on or after April 1, 2019 could be categorized as “minor injuries”, subject to a settlement cap, or serious injuries which are settled based on the extent of the injury, recovery time, and process.
How can you be sure that your injury is being classified appropriately and that you will receive fair compensation needed to cover:
