Port Coquitlam Car Accident Lawyers


In the time it takes a distracted driver to glance away from their windshield to check a text message notification, innocent lives can be tragically cut short. Negligent drivers whose failure to consider the potentially devastating consequences of their wrongful actions can tear families apart, permanently injure unsuspecting community members, and cause law-abiding road-users years of pain and suffering.

According to recently released data, in just one year, 1,457 motor vehicle collisions occurred at intersections in Port Coquitlam. Each year, hundreds of car accident survivors in Port Coquitlam are hospitalized because of injuries they sustained in the collision. These injured car accident victims often require invasive surgeries, intensive physiotherapy regimens, prescription medications, and substantial changes to their daily lives to fully cope with the wide-ranging repercussions of their accident.

In addition to suffering physical pain and discomfort, many injured survivors of car accidents in Port Coquitlam develop serious, potentially disabling mental health disorders. The process of recovery can be emotionally challenging, isolating, and expensive. Anxieties about financial instability combined with feelings of helplessness can lead to serious psychological conditions, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Other sleep disorders
  • Alcohol use disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • And more

On top of the physical and psychological injuries sustained by the survivors of serious motor vehicle collisions, injured car accident victims often incur significant financial losses. These can be related to necessary medical expenses, lost wages due to missed work, lifestyle adjustments to accommodate newly developed disabilities, attendant care, medical equipment, and even a reduced future earning capability.

If your collision was caused by another driver’s negligence and occurred before May 1, 2021, our Port Coquitlam car accident lawyers may be able to help you pursue a civil claim against the at-fault driver whose negligence instigated your injury-causing collision. However, because of recent changes implemented by ICBC, car accident victims who were injured after May 1, 2021 have more limited options.

ICBC is the province’s sole provider of basic auto insurance. The Crown corporation recently implemented a new “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage, providing all injured car accident survivors with no-fault accident benefits to offset the resulting costs they have incurred. But in doing so, ICBC has also taken away injured car accident victims’ rights to sue at-fault drivers. It has also substantially limited their options to appeal denied ICBC claims or contest unfairly low settlement amounts provided after their injury-causing collision.

Since ICBC is owned and operated by the provincial government, you can voice your opinion about this new “enhanced care” system of insurance coverage by contacting your MLA.
