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.
If your injury was sustained prior to 2019 your damages would be covered under the previous insurance model and you may be eligible for compensation.
How can you be sure that your injury is being classified appropriately and that you will receive fair compensation needed to cover:
- Medical expenses,
- Lost wages
- Care expenses
- Psychological care
Under the new ICBC No Fault insurance it is important to understand that there are exceptions. We will advise you as to your rights and help you decide how to best approach your claim.
Factors that determine the way your claim is processed and settled include
- Criminal charges against the person at fault
- When you obtained medical attention
- Timeline between the accident and the claim
