Nanaimo Truck Accident Lawyers


The victims of truck accidents in Nanaimo are often faced with enormous challenges. Sustaining various types of injuries in a collision caused by a negligent truck driver can be a harrowing experience, one that is made even more difficult to navigate because of ongoing, bureaucratic nightmares.

ICBC, the sole provider of basic auto insurance throughout the province, has recently introduced a dramatic new policy that makes it more difficult than ever for injured victims of motor vehicle collisions to get the compensation they deserve. Under the Crown corporation’s new “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage, all parties injured in a collision are entitled ICBC accident benefits to offset the costs of injury-related expenses. That is nothing new, but what has changed is the accident victim’s ability to pursue fault-based civil claims.

If you were injured in a truck accident that occurred before ICBC’s no-fault insurance system took effect on May 1, 2021, you might still be entitled to sue the at-fault driver whose negligence led to your collision. You might even be entitled to sue other parties whose contributory negligence contributed to the conditions leading to your injury-causing truck accident (such as the negligent driver’s employer). However, if your collision took place after the “enhanced care” model went into effect, you will only be permitted to pursue a civil claim in very limited circumstances.

On top of that, after sustaining injuries in a truck accident, if your ICBC claim is denied, or if the settlement amount you receive is too low to cover your total financial losses, under this new system, it is more difficult than ever to appeal the unfair determination. Indeed, ICBC’s “enhanced care” insurance model appears to offer the exact opposite of what its name promises.

Already, both the injured survivors of serious collisions and the families of wrongfully deceased accident victims are experiencing the unfair impacts of ICBC’s no-fault insurance system. While individual drivers’ insurance premiums might be somewhat reduced, this new model could jeopardize the physical, emotional, and financial well-being of countless accident victims throughout the province.

ICBC is a provincially-owned Crown corporation. To express your concerns about the ubiquitous insurance provider’s no-fault system, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal the “enhanced care” model.
