Kelowna Car Accidents
If you were injured in a motor vehicle collision before May 1, 2021, our Kelowna car accident lawyers may be able to help you pursue a civil claim against the at-fault driver whose negligence caused your accident to occur. By doing so, our car accident lawyers serving Kelowna could help you recover the maximum amount of damages to which you might be entitled. Depending on the severity of the injuries you sustained and the adverse impacts they have had on your overall quality of life, the damages to which you might be entitled could be economic or non-economic in nature. The might include:
- Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities
- Housekeeping services
- Attendant care
- Mileage to and from medical appointments
- Psychological counseling
- Psychiatric treatment
- Prescription drugs
- Mobility devices
- Medical equipment
- Lost wages
- Reduced future earning capabilities
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering
- Other medical expenses
- And more
Our Kelowna car accident lawyers believe that no one should be forced to suffer the economic repercussions of someone else’s negligence. In the context of motor vehicle collisions, negligence occurs when a driver fails to abide by the rules legislated within the provincial Motor Vehicle Act. In accordance with this piece of legislation, all motorists owe a duty of care to their fellow road-users. Failure to uphold this duty of care by violating traffic laws and engaging in wrongful conduct behind the wheel could constitute driver negligence.
Unfortunately, on May 1, 2021, significant changes to the ways in which ICBC provides compensation to injured car accident survivors in the promise were implemented, thereby stripping countless individuals of their rights to pursue tort action against negligent drivers. If the car accident in which you were injured happened after these changes went into effect on May 1, 2021, you now have limited options for financial recovery. If the Crown corporation responds to your ICBC claim with an unfairly low settlement, there are significantly reduced opportunities to contest or appeal the insurance provider’s decision.
To voice your concerns about these unfair, unilateral changes to the way injured car accident victims access crucial financial support in this province, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal ICBC’s “enhanced care” insurance model.
