ICBC not treating you fairly after the car accident? It’s a common enough story …
The Insurance Corporation of British Columbia or ICBC, like all insurance companies, wants to pay out as little on a claim as they possibly can.
And because they insure all motor vehicles in British Columbia, almost all car drivers have to deal with them at one time or another for an insurance claim.
Whether your claim involves injuries, vehicle damage, loss of income or damages for pain and suffering, the story is often the same.
Before you agree to anything, before you sign anything, you need to talk to a lawyer and find out where you stand. You need to know what your rights are and what you should or should not do.
You should consult a lawyer experienced in dealing with ICBC matters as soon as possible.
