Vernon Car Accident Lawyers


When negligent drivers violate traffic laws, they jeopardize the safety, physical well-being, and the very lives of local community members. Tragically, preventable car crashes caused by negligent drivers in Vernon can be fatal. They can also cause unsuspecting, rule-abiding car accident victims to sustain life-altering injuries.

Depending on the specific circumstances of the individual car accident, the people involved in the collision can sustain an array of injuries, ranging in severity from moderate to catastrophic. Some injuries commonly sustained by injured victims of Vernon car accidents include:

  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Internal organ damage
  • Traumatic amputations
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • And more

The real-world impact of these injuries can be overwhelming for the people who have survived harrowing, near-death collisions. On top of suffering physically, injured car accident victims commonly develop mental health disorders that can be so debilitating they are no longer able to work, maintain social relationships, or enjoy the same quality of life to which they had become accustomed.

Furthermore, injured survivors of car accidents in Vernon often suffer financially. Because of a complete stranger’s failure to abide by the rules outlined in the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, injured car accident victims often face an influx of new expenses and economic losses. This is especially true of injured car accident survivors who are unable to continue performing the duties of their jobs because of their injuries.

Since going into effect on May 1, 2021, ICBC’s new “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage provides injured car accident survivors with no-fault accident benefits. That means all parties who have been injured in a collision should be able to access insurance coverage to help bear the financial burden caused by their newly acquired medical conditions. However, ICBC’s “enhanced care” system strips car accident victims of their right to pursue compensation from negligent drivers through civil action. Additionally, it puts even more roadblocks in the way of injured claimants who received unfair settlement amounts or whose ICBC claims were outright denied by the provincially-owned insurance provider.

If you are outraged by the way this Crown corporation has taken away the rights of injured community members, contact your MLA and encourage them to consider repealing the so-called “enhanced care” insurance model.

If you were hurt in a motor vehicle collision before May 1, 2021, you may be eligible to pursue legal action in order to recover the compensation you deserve. Contact our Vernon car accident lawyers today by calling 1-800-JUSTICE and receive a free initial consultation on your case.
