When you accept an ICBC settlement, you are taking the final offer for compensation. Due to this, it is vital that you understand how your injury will impact you in the future. Before you accept an ICBC settlement, you should discuss your case with one of the attorneys at Stephens & Holman. We will work closely with you to help you determine what your claim is really worth.
Stages of an ICBC Settlement
There are four stages to an ICBC settlement:
- An adjustor reviews your claim
- You review the settlement offer with the adjustor
- You accept the adjustor’s offer
- You receive payment
During stage three, the acceptance, you also have a right to deny the offer. Once you have signed the final release forms, you waive your right to seek further compensation.
To ensure you are being treated fairly and awarded the entire amount you are due, you need an experienced lawyer on your side. Our Surrey ICBC settlement attorneys have years of experience helping victims of automobile accidents work with ICBC and get the maximum compensation they are due.
