ICBC Out-Of-Province Injury Claim Lawyers

If you are travelling outside of the province and are involved in a motor vehicle accident, you might feel as if your options for monetary compensation are severely limited. Fortunately, the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) is often involved in the legal process out of province because ICBC insurance is considered "universal." Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident (whether you caused the collision or if you were driving a rental vehicle, for example), the level of ICBC involvement might change. It is important to have a lawyer on your side who understands your insurance coverage and the legal guidance you need to recover compensation for your injuries, lost wages and property damage.

There are four different categories of ICBC coverage that might typically be applicable in an accident injury claim:

  1. Property damage insurance: This portion of the policy covers repairs to your vehicle following an accident.
  2. No-fault benefits: Following an accident, you might be concerned about lost wages and medical treatment. These benefits cover those financial challenges.
  3. Third-party liability: If you cause or contribute to an accident that results in injuries or property damage, this policy will compensate those affected.
  4. Underinsurance (UMP): If the responsible driver does not have sufficient insurance to compensate you for your injuries, your own ICBC policy may provide up to $1,000,000 in additional coverage. We recommend opting for an additional $1,000,000 in UMP coverage for just another $25 premium.

Historically, the ICBC has focused on resolving claims fairly and efficiently. They remain one of the easiest organizations to work with. At Cross Border Law, we are proud of the countless injured clients we have helped by negotiating a successful resolution with representatives of ICBC.
