As the universal auto insurer for all BC drivers, ICBC is involved in every car accident claim in our province. Since a Basic Autoplan policy includes third-party liability coverage, ICBC will pay you accident benefits from your own policy and for a different set of losses under the at-fault driver's policy. While these are separate legal claims, in practice, the same ICBC adjuster will handle both.
The advice and representation of a lawyer, such as Michael Golden and our team of injury advocates at the Michael Golden Law Corporation, can help ensure you receive the appropriate benefits from ICBC following an accident. Unlike an adjuster, who works for the insurer, Michael's objective is to represent you and get you the compensation to which you are entitled.
The Importance of Establishing Liability
Early investigation into what caused your accident is important to establish who was liable for the crash. As your lawyers, we will work to gather the evidence required to defend against an accusation that you may have caused your own crash.
Although accident benefits, including medical treatment with user fees and wage loss benefits, are available to you regardless of whether or not you are deemed at fault, third-party liability coverage for pain and suffering and out-of-pocket expenses is available only if it can be shown you did not cause your accident. Our team can work to get you the benefits you are entitled to, given the circumstances surrounding your crash.
