Early Legal Advice is Important

If you have been involved in a car accident, it is very important to obtain legal advice as quickly as possible. If you deal with ICBC without a lawyer, you may cause irreparable damage to your claim.  Without help from a car accident lawyer, you may be putting ICBC in control of important evidence that is needed for your case.

If you do not have a car accident lawyer, ICBC will ask you to give a statement to them, and that statement can be used against you at a later date. ICBC will also try and gain access to your medical records, and in some cases, your medical history can be used against you to minimize the value of your claim. In a worst case scenario, ICBC may try to convince you to settle your case before your injuries are fully healed.

Getting early advice from an ICBC car accident lawyer protects your rights. We ensure that ICBC only gets relevant information about your car accident claim. Our experienced team helps you provide a statement which truthfully sets out the circumstances of your accident and your injuries. Our injury lawyers will also take steps to protect your private medical history. We make sure that ICBC knows they are not permitted to access any of your personal information without your prior consent. Finally, we make sure that your case is not settled until ICBC offers a fair value for your case.

ICBC Injury Claims: Your health is our primary goal

If you have an ICBC injury claim, our primary goal is to help you to get better. One way in which we do this is by making sure you have funding for any treatment you need. ICBC often will only provide partial funding for treatments. In other cases, the insurance company refuses to pay anything for treatment for an ICBC injury claim. As experienced ICBC claims lawyers, we can use the legal system to force ICBC to pay the full costs of your treatment.

In our 12 years as Surrey car accident lawyers, we have also developed relationships with clinics and caregivers throughout the Fraser Valley. If you need treatment, we can arrange for you to see a caregiver who will defer payment until your claim settles. This allows you to get the care you need without worrying about paying up front.

If you do not have a family doctor, we may also be able to help you find one. Over the years, in our work as Surrey car accident lawyers, we have developed relationships with a number of physicians.  Many people who have ICBC injury claims are unable to find a doctor willing to deal with their case.  When this happens, we are usually able to locate a family doctor for our clients to help them with their ICBC injury claim.

ICBC Claim Settlements – Surrey & Fraser Valley

Over the past 12 years, we have obtained hundreds of ICBC claim settlements on behalf of clients in Surrey and its surrounding communities. We have used our legal expertise and experience to convince ICBC to pay Surrey residents millions of dollars in claims.

As personal injury ICBC lawyers, we have expertise in how the ICBC Injury claim lawyers surrey bc - Car AccidentsICBC system works. ICBC assesses your case based largely upon your medical evidence. We take steps to ensure that you are assessed by medical doctors with experience in the kinds of injuries unique to your case. In other words, we make sure you have the right medical evidence needed to convince ICBC to pay you fairly for your ICBC settlement.

When considering a settlement in your case, our Surrey ICBC lawyers will closely examine all of the evidence in your case. We will interview your friends and family members so that ICBC knows all the ways the accident has affected your life. We will also research case law, which is a history of legal cases with injuries that are similar to your circumstances. Using this evidence and case law, our car accident lawyers write legal arguments to compel ICBC to pay you a fair ICBC settlement.

When trying to get you an ICBC settlement, we also look at the affect the accident has upon your ability to work. If you have lost out on wages or job opportunities, we take steps to interview your employer and get evidence which ensures you are compensated for these losses. If your injury causes you permanent problems, we also examine whether you are less able to work in the future. If your ICBC injury claim will prevent you from working in the future, we make sure that you are paid for loss of future earnings as part of your ICBC claim settlement.

Damage Awards 

ICBC pays out your claim based on the type of legal damages you have suffered. Legally, the term Damages refers to measuring all the ways you are damaged as a result of your ICBC car accident. The types of damages paid out by ICBC include past income loss, future income loss, and pain and suffering.

ICBC pain and Suffering Awards

ICBC pain and suffering awards are meant to compensate you for all of the personal ways you have been affected by a car accident. For example, ICBC pain and suffering looks at your restriction in social activities, your personal life with your spouse or partner, and your inability to enjoy your life. The amount of your award depends largely upon whether ICBC has the right information about the effects of your injuries. Our experienced team of Surrey ICBC injury lawyers make sure that we ask you the right questions about how the accident has impacted your life. We stay in touch with you regularly throughout the claim. In this way, we make sure the insurance company knows the full extent of your problems, allowing us to get you a fair ICBC pain and suffering award.

Income Loss – Past and Future

When we are negotiating your ICBC settlement, we make sure that you are properly compensated for any time you missed from work. We gather evidence of the time you miss from your job, and we make sure this evidence is put forward in the ICBC settlement process. As your Surrey car accident lawyers, it is our goal to make certain you are not out of pocket for any income you could not make due to your ICBC car accident.

If you have a more serious injury, you may have a claim for a type of damages known as future income loss. As Surrey car accident lawyers, we use our legal experience to determine whether you may be less able to work in the future. If the evidence shows that you may have difficulties working in other jobs at some future time, we take steps to get you money for these lost opportunities as part of your ICBC settlement.

Types of Injuries

When assessing the value of your claim, we examine the types of injuries caused by your ICBC car accident. As Surrey ICBC lawyers, we have dealt with a broad range of injuries over the past 12 years. One of the most common forms of injuries are soft tissue injuries. These types of injuries usually result from whiplash type accidents, where a person’s neck and back is thrown quickly forward and back in a motor vehicle collision.

Soft tissue injuries are often misunderstood. Many people erroneously believe that these injuries always heal, or that they are not serious. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. Many people with ICBC injury claims suffer from soft tissue injuries which take years to heal. In some cases, people never recover from car accident soft tissue injuries. If you are diagnosed with a soft tissue injury, it is important to speak with an experienced ICBC car accident lawyer. We have many years of experience dealing with these types of claims. We can ensure that you get the treatment you need to get better, and just as importantly, we can make sure that you are properly compensated with an ICBC settlement.

We also have significant experience dealing with injuries of a more serious nature. Specifically, we have achieved many ICBC settlements for clients with tears in muscles and ligaments. We also have expertise in dealing with concussions, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. These complex cases require the support and expertise of an experienced ICBC injury lawyer. Generally, the more serious the injury, the more serious are the needs of the client. ICBC has money to pay for needs such as home care, domestic help, and transportation assistance. An experienced Surrey accident lawyer can ensure that ICBC provides the financial assistance necessary to deal with these types of serious claims.

Types of Accidents:

Rear end Collisions

A common accident we see in Surrey and the Fraser Valley are rear end collisions. These often happen at intersections, or on highways when traffic is stopped and jammed up. For some reason or another, a driver is not paying attention and runs into the rear of the vehicle ahead.  These types of accidents often result in ICBC injury claims.

In our 12 years as Surrey ICBC lawyers, we have seen an increase in rear end collisions caused by distracted driving. This increase can largely be attributed to the increased use of cell phones and hand held devices. The law now prohibits drivers from using handheld devices while driving. If you are injured as a result of this type of negligent behaviour, you will likely be entitled to an ICBC claim settlement.
