Nanaimo Car Accidents


Even the most cautious, safety-conscious motorist could be involved in a car accident caused by a negligent driver. For unsuspecting, rule-abiding drivers, serious crashes in Nanaimo can lead to serious injuries, and can even lead to the tragic loss of life.

According to British Columbia’s Motor Vehicle Act, all drivers on the province’s roads and highways owe a duty of care to their fellow road-users. This includes:

  • Other motorists
  • Their passengers
  • Motorcycle riders
  • Truck drivers
  • Cyclists
  • Pedestrians
  • And possibly others

That being the case, all drivers are required to operate their vehicles with a reasonable degree of caution and in accordance with the province’s traffic laws. If a driver violates the rules of the road– even for a brief moment– and an accident ensues in which another road-users sustains injuries, the at-fault driver might be considered negligent. And, if the collision they caused occurred before May 1, 2021, the negligent driver might also be liable for damages incurred by car accident victims who were injured because of their wrongful conduct.

Therefore, if you were injured in a motor vehicle collision that took place before May 1, 2021, our Nanaimo car accident lawyers may be able to help you file a civil claim against the negligent driver whose unlawful behaviour behind the wheel led to your injurious car accident. By pursuing tort action against the at-fault driver, our car accident lawyers serving Nanaimo may be able to help you recover the maximum amount of compensation to which you could be entitled.

If your accident occurred after May 1, 2021, your options for financial recovery will, unfortunately, be limited. ICBC, the Crown corporation that provides auto insurance coverage exclusively throughout the province, has instituted changes to their coverage model and implemented a new “enhanced care” system. ICBC now provides all injured car accident survivors with no-fault accident benefits (regardless of their degree of culpability for causing the collision). However, the company has essentially stripped injured car accident survivors of their right to pursue civil action against the at-fault driver and has limited their options to contest or appeal unfair settlement decisions made by the provincially-owned insurance organization. These changes have already had widespread, negative consequences for countless car accident victims looking for fair treatment and fair compensation. If you have concerns about this new “enhanced care” insurance model and its potentially devastating repercussions for vulnerable road-users, contact your MLA.

Even if your collision took place after May 1, 2021, our Nanaimo car accident lawyers may be able to help you by offering personalized legal advice, and helping you complete your ICBC claim in a thorough and effective manner to increase your chances of receiving a higher settlement amount.
