Some Questions and Answers
You must notify ICBC of the accident. Make sure you review all the relevant details of the crash because accuracy is important in dealing with ICBC. It is best to consult a lawyer before providing ICBC with information, and before providing ICBC a formal statement or signing any forms.
If you are hurt, or you have any concerns at all about your health, seek medical advice immediately. Go to the hospital for a check-up or see your family doctor as soon as possible after the crash
Report all symptoms. Follow the doctor’s advice and the advice of any other medical or health professionals your doctor refers you to.
Our hope at the beginning of your case is that you will make a full and speedy recovery. Unfortunately, that is not always the case and we need to look carefully at the medical opinion available to assess your claim.
Without reading medical reports and knowing the full extent of your injuries, it is impossible to give a professional opinion.
You should consult with a personal injury lawyer before you give any statements or sign any papers. A personal injury lawyer will assist you to increase your chances of receiving fair compensation for your injuries.
It is important to contact a lawyer to discuss the details of your accident as soon as possible to ensure steps are taken and a claim is filed within the appropriate time periods.
We are always hopeful that our clients’ injuries turn out to be minor injuries that heal quickly. If it is a minor case, and the injuries heal well, the case will generally settle quite promptly after the healing takes place. More serious injuries generally take longer.
The timeline of a case generally depends on (1) how your injuries progress and the rate at which you heal (we will not want to present your case until we know your long term prognosis); and (2) how long it takes to fully document the evidence for your case (including, medical and wage loss documentation).
If you are still having problems arising from your injuries, but you do not see your family physician for several months, your doctor’s conclusion may be that you have fully recovered. You should therefore keep your family physician reasonably up to date on your condition.
