Is There a Statute of Limitations for Filing an ICBC Accident Claim?

Serving Greater Vancouver and Nearby Areas of British Columbia

If you’ve been involved in a car accident, there are a multitude of fears that may be running through your mind. Primarily, you’re worried about your health and the health of those involved in the accident, but you may also be worried about whether you’ll be able to return to work, fix your vehicle, and eventually pay for all of the bills associated with the accident.

If you’ve been involved in a car accident that was caused by another’s negligence, our British Columbia car accident lawyers at Stephens & Holman can help get you compensation. Filing claims through the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) can be difficult and are oftentimes denied. Therefore, we recommend contacting our injury lawyers as soon as possible so we can help you file your claim.

According to ICBC regulations, you have up to two years from the date of your accident to file a claim for damages. However, it is our experience that the sooner you file, the better because we can help get you compensation earlier. Our attorneys will work to get you compensation for the following:

  • Vehicle damage
  • Past, present, and future medical expenses
  • Physical, mental, and emotional rehabilitation
  • Loss of employment
  • Loss of benefits
  • Pain and suffering

Whether your car accident just occurred or it happened a while ago and you’re still within the two year statute of limitations, contact our British Columbia accident attorneys today. Let us help get you back on your feet! Call us at 604-730-4120.
