Determining fault in an accident is an important step in assigning financial responsibility for any injuries that occur. In British Columbia, if you are involved in an auto accident, the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) will investigate the incident. However, our accident lawyers can still help with the process.
The ICBC determines fault according to the Fault Determination Rules outlined in the Insurance Act and typically assigns a percentage of fault to each involved driver.
How a Lawyer Can Help
If you are involved in an accident and believe it was caused at least in part by the fault of another driver, our accident lawyers can make the entire process easier to understand.
An experienced accident lawyer will help you to gather evidence that proves fault in the accident and translates into the financial compensation you deserve. A lawyer can also help you appeal an ICBC decision or advise you whether an ICBC settlement is fair. It is a good idea to consult with a lawyer prior to making a statement to an ICBC adjuster. Your lawyer can help to outline your individual circumstances and the best course of action for your claim.
