Accidents involving drunk or impaired drivers are often more complex than other kinds of accidents. There may be a criminal case in addition to a civil claim, and the drunk driver may not receive insurance coverage from ICBC. Legal advice in these situations is particularly important, so you can take the necessary legal steps to gain the benefits you need.
Michael Golden and our Vancouver office of drunk driver accident lawyers can give you the legal representation you need to claim appropriate benefits from ICBC.
ICBC and Drunk Drivers
If a drunk driver is suspected to have caused an accident, ICBC will consider that driver to have breached his or her insurance. ICBC will refuse to provide the driver with benefits under his or her insurance policy, even if the evidence against the driver regarding his or her sobriety is inconclusive.
If you have been injured by a drunk driver, we can take the legal steps necessary to file suit against the driver, claim benefits from ICBC and, in the case of the loss of a loved one, potentially file a suit for wrongful death.
