In this section you will find some helpful tips on making sure your Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (“ICBC”) claim gets started in the right direction especially since a new, and very restrictive, injury “cap” scheme will apply to all accidents on or after April 1, 2019. You will also find some general information about ICBC and how the corporation works. There is also helpful information on what to do if you are the driver being sued because of a motor vehicle accident. Overall, the best starting point is to read through the articles in this section before you begin the ICBC process.
These articles will familiarize you with the ICBC process and give you a general idea of what to expect. If you are unfamiliar with the process, you will be giving ICBC the upper hand in their dealings with you. A lack of knowledge may result in a poor outcome for your claim and likely a “minor injury” designation, giving rise to very limited compensation for your injuries.
