Prince George ICBC Lawyer

Car accidents remain a significant issue in British Columbia, and the roadways of Prince George are no exception. Many of these accidents are significant, with drivers and passengers sustaining severe injuries. While compensation for those injuries is a possibility, the claims must go through the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) first.

With ICBC policies, you have the right to recover some monetary compensation for your injuries regardless of whether you were the at-fault party or not. However, a full recovery is only available if you can show that another driver was responsible for your injuries. Obtaining these damages can be challenging, but an experienced ICBC law firm may be able to help.

Benefits in an ICBC claim

The benefits available under an ICBC claim are also known as “Part 7 benefits.” Any driver injured within the province has the right to seek benefits from ICBC. British Columbia residents involved in an accident elsewhere also have the opportunity to file a claim. The benefits available under Part 7 include:

  • Medical bills
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wage replacement
  • Death benefits

Even if you are entitled to Part 7 benefits, ICBC can require that you first submit to an examination from a doctor of their choosing. Failing to comply with these requests can cost you your shot at recovering damages. Thankfully, an experienced ICBC lawyer can help you prepare for a meeting with ICBC doctors.

Investigating an accident

Getting to the bottom of what caused your vehicle accident is a critical step. However, insurance adjusters with ICBC rarely take the time to investigate your crash thoroughly. Given the enormous volume of cases they handle, many ICBC investigations are deficient. You do not have to leave your claim to the whims of an adjuster, however. An ICBC lawyercan take the steps necessary to get to the bottom of your accident.

Some of the critical facts your lawyer should seek out include:

  • Was another driver at fault for your accident?
  • Was the driver speeding or under the influence of alcohol?
  • How many different parties contributed to your accident?
  • Did the driver that hit you stop or leave the scene?
