Injured in a Car Accident?
Will You Still have an ICBC Claim when the Rules change in 2019?
The laws with respect to compensation in car accident injury cases in B.C. will change after April 1, 2019. The new rules will apply to all car accidents that occur after April 1, 2019.
How do the new rules affect you?
First and foremost, if you or somebody you know has been involved in a car accident in the past or is involved in a car accident before April 1, 2019, it is absolutely vital that you or your friend consult with a lawyer at Cowley & Company immediately to learn your rights. Nobody should be depending on an ICBC adjustor to advise them of their rights. ICBC adjusters are not on your side. Their job is to save ICBC money.
If you or somebody you know is injured in a car accident after April 1,2019, it is even more important that you take the time to check in with a Cowley & Company lawyer. The new ICBC system is very complicated. Few people will be able to figure it out themselves and the last place any injured person should go to for advice about the new system is ICBC. Remember that it is ICBC that has to pay you compensation. It is common sense that ICBC adjusters are not inclined to give you information to assist you to get the maximum compensation from ICBC.
