The Insurance Company of British Columbia (the “ICBC”) will likely be involved in resolving car accident insurance claims for almost every vehicle collision in British Columbia. Residents of Langley and its surrounding communities who suffer property losses and injuries in a car accident can find themselves fighting an ICBC bureaucracy that handles numerous accident claims every month.
Our ICBC law firm can help injured parties cut through that bureaucracy. Preszler Law established its offices in Abbotsford and Surrey to serve Langley Township’s residents in filing and negotiating claims with the ICBC. Our Langley ICBC lawyers can verify that your accident claims are filed promptly and with all of the information that is needed to justify a claim for the largest compensation award that may be available.
What Benefits Are Available Under An ICBC Claim?
If you have suffered injuries in a car accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation under ICBC “Part 7 Benefits”. Those benefits might include reimbursement for:
These benefits are not automatic, nor is it likely that the ICBC will offer the full amount of these benefits as an initial response to an injured party’s claim. To qualify for benefits, you need to promptly notify the ICBC of your accident and you need to send the ICBC a written report about the accident and your injuries no later than 30 days after the accident happened. You also need to submit an ICBC proof of claims within 90 days. Finally, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit to support any claims that have not been resolved.
A Langley ICBC lawyer can help you to file your claim on time and to initiate a lawsuit before the deadline for filing expires.
