Every day, people in British Columbia are injured in car accidents that are caused by the negligence of others or similar factors out of their control. If you were hurt in a car accident because of a negligent driver, we may be able to help you claim the compensation you deserve.

All car accident claims in British Columbia go through the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. As a corporation, the ICBC is not always looking out for the best interests of car accident victims when it makes decisions about how much financial compensation to award. To achieve a fair settlement in your case, you may need the assistance of an independent personal injury lawyer advocating on your behalf.

Our legal team is prepared to work quickly to recover the full value of your car accident claim. After representing clients in over 3,000 claims, we have an in-depth understanding of the long-term financial consequences that are associated with head injuries, spinal cord injuries and whiplash. We are also aware of how important it is to establish who was at fault in the car accident. Using eyewitness testimony, photographic evidence and police reports, we will present a clear picture of the accident that may help you to achieve a larger settlement.

Following a car accident, it’s important to speak with an independent lawyer before contacting ICBC directly. If you discuss your car accident with an ICBC representative, any statements you make could be used later on to limit or deny your claim for compensation. To learn more about how to deal with this type of matter, you can visit our page on car accidents.
