Accidents that occur in British Columbia should be reported to ICBC. However, you have the option to have a lawyer file on your behalf, so you have the benefit of legal advice and advocacy that is in your best interest. If you file a claim on your own, you will rely on the recommendations of an ICBC adjuster as to the compensation you are entitled to and a determination of who was at fault for your accident.
Michael Golden has represented ICBC claimants during the past 20 years of his more than 25 years as a lawyer in the Lower Mainland. Michael and our team at Michael Golden Law Corporation work for you, unlike the adjuster, who works for ICBC.
Understanding the Role of the ICBC Adjuster
ICBC adjusters are often hardworking individuals who may have honest compassion for you and your claim. However, adjusters ultimately work for ICBC and will pay out claims based on established criteria. Unlike a lawyer, who will negotiate on your behalf and work to secure you benefits that you are entitled to, an adjuster may be motivated to close your file quickly even if the severity of your injuries is not fully understood.
