If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, your main concern should be your health, and returning to your pre-accident status. Seeking immediate medical attention is very important, and can also have an effect on the value of your claim.

It is also important that you do not say anything to ICBC, or sign anything with them, until you first speak with an ICBC injury lawyer.

Quite often, an unrepresented claimant immediately contacts ICBC after an accident, when they may not be in the proper frame of mind. They may make a mistake in what they tell ICBC, which may come back to haunt them. They may also neglect to mention something important, which could also be a problem at a later date.

At other times, claimants may feel pressured to attend to an ICBC office to sign a statement about how the accident occurred. You are not required to do so.

It is important to have an ICBC Injury Lawyer on your side for many reasons:

Your legal rights will be protected. This can include meeting certain deadlines and time limits imposed by law.

Your ICBC Injury Lawyer will explain to you what different things you can claim for. Many people are unaware of many of the various components that make up an injury claim. Many people believe that you can only claim for pain and suffering, and income loss, however there are in fact many other claims that you can make. As a result of a person not knowing what they can claim for, they do not achieve the proper value for their claims that they deserve, and justice is not served.

Your legal obligations will be explained to you. For example, you have a legal obligation to mitigate your damages, meaning that you must take active steps to rehabilitate yourself.

Your ICBC injury lawyer will deal with ICBC on your behalf with respect to your ICBC Injury Claims, which will take a great deal of stress and inconvenience out of your life. To many people, this is a very important benefit to having an ICBC injury lawyer on their side.

Your ICBC Injury Lawyer will use their skill and expertise to help maximize the value of your injury claim.

If you have been in a motor vehicle accident, remember to first seek medical attention for your injuries.
Your next step should be to contact an ICBC injury lawyer for a free consultation.
It could be the best financial decision you ever make.
