Abbotsford Car Accident Lawyers


Suddenly and without warning, an unexpected motor vehicle collision can change the course of an accident survivor’s entire life and have profound impacts on the lives of their loved ones. Sadly, many serious crashes in Abbotsford lead to tragic deaths. Those who are fortunate enough to survive severe collisions often sustain life-altering injuries that can adversely affect their overall quality of life and their ability to continue earning a living.

Thousands of community members are forced to live with the consequences of someone else’s negligence behind the wheel. According to data provided by ICBC, over the course of one year, there were more than 3200 car accidents in Abbotsford. Because of another driver’s failure to obey the rules of the road, innocent lives can be lost and unsuspecting motorists and their passengers can sustain permanent, catastrophic injuries.

Since implementing their new “enhanced care” model of no-fault accident benefits, ICBC no longer permits injured car accident survivors to pursue civil claims against negligent drivers whose unlawful behaviour on the road caused their collision to occur. However, if you were involved in a crash before May 1, 2021, our Abbotsford car accident lawyers may still be able to help you pursue compensation from the at-fault driver whose negligence led to your injury-causing collision.

Driver negligence occurs when the operator of a motor vehicle fails to fulfill the duty of care they are legally required to provide to other road-users. If a driver disobeys a local traffic law and their actions lead to a collision in which another party is injured, they might be considered negligent. Examples of driver negligence include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Speeding
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • Improperly changing lanes
  • Distracted driving
  • And more

If you were injured in a collision caused by another driver’s negligence before May 1, 2021, our car accident lawyers serving Abbotsford may be able to help you pursue a civil claim against the at-fault driver. By doing so, we may be able to help you recover the maximum damages to which you should be entitled.

ICBC’s new “enhanced care” model strips away injured car accident victims’ rights to sue for damages. Instead, any party injured in a motor vehicle collision– even those who caused the accident by violating the law– are entitled to no-fault accident benefits. However, ICBC notoriously looks for reasons to deny car accident survivors’ claims for accident benefits, to provide unfairly low settlement amounts, and to withhold crucial, potentially life-changing financial support to people who desperately need easy access to care.

Our Abbotsford car accident lawyers have combined decades of experience completing ICBC claims for clients we have successfully represented. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we are committed to helping injured members of the local community navigate the challenging process of receiving fair treatment and fair coverage from ICBC, even in spite of unfair policy changes that will continue to negatively impact the lives of injured car accident victims and their families.
