An experienced accident lawyer will be able to gather important evidence and accident details and assemble them into a clear and concise argument for monetary recovery. Your car accident lawyer will quantify all the ways the accident has affected your life and seek an official amount of compensation from ICBC and any other insurance companies involved. Your lawyer is, most importantly, the guardian of your rights and a spokesperson for your interests.
You will need to provide your lawyer with any and all details surrounding your car accident:
- Names and phone numbers of witnesses, the careless driver, and any other vehicle owners or drivers involved
- Date and time of the accident
- Driving conditions
- Information regarding medical treatment for your injuries
Beyond these basics, there may be other contributing or environmental factors important in building your case.
If you were injured in an auto accident that was not your fault, you should have to pay nothing out of pocket, or in some cases only a deductible amount. ICBC should cover the repair cost of your vehicle from the careless driver’s and/or your own policy.
It may be easy to assess the value of your automobile and/or resulting damages. But most people are unaware of just how much their medical bills will amount to, over time. An experienced B.C. car accident claims lawyer will present a fair monetary assessment based on your current treatment needs, lost income, and potential future medical expenses.
We recommend that you never accept a settlement without first consulting a lawyer. We’ll make sure your rights are protected and your interests are heard.
Yes. ICBC adjusters are working for the company, not for you. Their job is to save the company money, and they don’t always pay out what’s fair. It is your legal right to have a court of law to decide the amount of compensation that you deserve for your injuries. Hiring a skilled Vancouver courtroom lawyer to represent you in an accident claim may mean a bigger settlement.
