What is ICBC & How are ICBC Injury Claims Made?
To determine liability and assess damages, ICBC assigns an adjuster to your claim. If multiple vehicles are involved in an accident and liability is disputed, ICBC will assign adjusters to each side. These adjusters will determine the amount each person will receive to cover their costs from the accident.
ICBC is a universal insurer and, as such, must compensate you even if the offending driver has no insurance or cannot be located. However, it is important that you behave proactively. In order to be awarded adequate compensation for your claim it is advisable you hire a lawyer with experience handling ICBC claims.
Factors that Affect Your Claim
When reviewing your claim, your adjuster will consider the circumstances of your accident, as well as the impact of the accident on your life. Particular factors include:
- Medical reports from your health care providers;
- The impact the injuries have had on your lifestyle, including your ability to earn income;
- ICBC’s history of similar settlement payments and court cases
Our ICBC personal injury lawyers can challenge these determinations on your behalf.
