What You Need to Know About Filing an ICBC Claim

If you were injured in a car accident in Coquitlam, it is crucial that you follow the proper ICBC claims procedure. Even a relatively minor mistake in the early stages of the claims process could adversely affect your ability to recover the full Part 7 benefits available to you. For this and other reasons, you should work with ICBC through a skilled Coquitlam personal injury lawyer. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, our legal team will ensure that your claim is presented properly. This includes:

  • Reporting your car accident to ICBC;
  • Drafting and submitting a narrative description of the accident;
  • Provide details regarding your car accident injuries; and
  • Sending your proof of claim form to ICBC.

You only have limited time to file your ICBC claim. You should report the accident to the insurance company within 30 days of the crash. Your proof of claim form must be sent in no later than 90 days after the date of your accident. If you miss these deadlines, it could hinder your ability to get the full benefits that you are owed.

British Columbia drivers are required to carry auto insurance that provides ‘no fault’ coverage in the case of an accident. These benefits are referred to as both ICBC benefits and as Part 7 benefits. If you were injured in an accident in Coquitlam, our auto accident lawyers can help you recover the full ICBC benefits that you are owed. This could include compensation for:

  • Medical treatment;
  • Physical rehabilitation;
  • Lost past or future wages;
  • Housekeeping expenses;
  • Disability benefits; and
  • Wrongful death benefits.

ICBC benefits are no fault benefits. However, that does not mean that it is easy to get a full settlement offer. The Insurance Company of British Columbia pays dividends to the province. The insurance adjusters at the company are tasked with serving the interests of the company. Unfortunately, you cannot rely on ICBC insurance representatives for guidance through the claims process. Before you contact the company to discuss your auto accident, you need to be sure that you consult with our experienced Coquitlam ICBC lawyers. We will make sure that your legal rights and financial interests are fully protected.
