When you’re injured in an auto accident in British Columbia, seeking legal recourse typically involves filing an official claim with ICBC. Unfortunately, the process of submitting a claim and reaching a fair settlement with ICBC is notoriously difficult—and things can become even more stressful and confusing when you attempt to go through this process alone. Fortunately, hiring a personal injury lawyer who has a proven success rate at helping clients reach fair settlements with ICBC can benefit you in a number of ways.
Receive Important Legal Guidance
For starters, any reputable personal injury lawyers will offer you a free consultation. During this consultation, he or she will gather important details about your auto accident and use them to provide you with legal advice and guidance at no cost or obligation to you. This can help you get a better idea of what steps you need to take next to pursue your settlement.
Navigate the Claims Process with Confidence
The claims process following an auto accident can be extremely complex and intimidating, especially for an accident victim who has never been through this before. By working with a personal injury attorney, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that you have representation from someone who knows the ICBC claims process inside and out—and who has been through the process with clients thousands of times in the past.
Determine the Worth of Your Case
One of the biggest challenges many people face after being injured in an auto accident is simply determining how much their settlement is worth. After all, the last thing you want is to settle for less than what you truly deserve. When you work with a personal injury attorney who has specific experience with auto accident ICBC claims, you can get a much better idea of exactly how much your case may be worth when it comes to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related costs.
Maximize Your Potential Settlement
Last but certainly not least, an experienced and hard-working personal injury lawyer will go above and beyond to maximize your potential settlement with ICBC. At the end of the day, the purpose of your ICBC claim should be to receive fair compensation for all the expenses related to your accident. Unfortunately, first settlement offers from ICBC are often “low ball” offers that don’t even come close to covering all of those expenses. Allow a personal injury attorney to fight for every last bit of compensation you deserve.
