During rush hour, when lengthy commutes and bumper-to-bumper traffic mean there is little space between vehicles and driver patience is at a minimum, rear-enders are common occurrences. You may be required to make a sudden stop, or the car behind you may suddenly accelerate and rear-end your vehicle.
ICBC may not provide you with the benefits that you need following a rear-ender accident. At our law firm, Michael Golden and our Vancouver team of rear-ender accident lawyers work with ICBC to get you the benefits you are entitled to.
Dealing With an ICBC Denial
If you have been rear-ended by another vehicle, ICBC may classify your claim as low-velocity impact, which may limit the amount of compensation they will offer you. Your rear-ender accident may result in physical injury such as whiplash, sore necks and backs, or possibly even orthopaedic injuries and fractures. You may be unable to work, but ICBC may refuse to give you appropriate compensation for loss of income and other expenses.
Michael and the rest of our team will file an ICBC claim on your behalf and will represent your interests to ICBC, so you do not settle your claim for less than you deserve.
