Successful claim will require that the other driver is at least partially liable for the accident. Also a passenger in a vehicle may claim against the driver of the vehicle that they were in.
Do not be under the misapprehension that ICBC adjusters are working on your side to provide you with a fair settlement. An ICBC adjuster’s job is to minimize costs for ICBC. ICBC may unfairly blame the accident partially on you. They may also use medical experts to minimize your injury claim. Though the adjuster will be referred to as "your adjuster", they are in fact employed by ICBC and therefore have a conflict of interest. They do not work for you. This is the reason to consult a lawyer before dealing with ICBC.
We can help you by working on your side to maximize your claim.
