TIME LIMITS – Don’t Be Your Own Worst Enemy
Depending on the nature of your claim, there can be strict time deadlines within which you must perform a certain action. Failure to do so can result in all or part of your claim being lost.
Perhaps one of the most important reasons for hiring Veale Law is to ensure that all time limits and limitation periods are met. Consider the following situations where failing to comply with a limitation period or time limit can result in all or part of your claim being denied:
- Notifying ICBC of an accident
- Providing a written report to ICBC about an accident
- Applying for ICBC “no fault” benefits
- Suing ICBC for denial of “no fault” benefits
- Suing an at-fault driver and owner for damages
- Suing ICBC under your insurance contract
- Filing for arbitration in regards to the value of your “written off” vehicle
- Informing the police about a hit and run accident in B.C.
- Informing the police about a hit and run accident in the United States, or certain areas of Canada
- Providing written notification of a hit and run claim to ICBC that occurred in B.C.
- Providing a sworn statement to ICBC about a hit and run accident in the United States, or certain areas of Canada
- Notifying a municipality of a claim
- Suing a municipality for damages
- Infant claims, when a Notice to Proceed has been served on you
- Infant claims, when a Notice to Proceed has not been served on you

HOW WE CAN HELP
At Veale Law, we offer you a free consultation to discuss your case, and to advise you of your legal rights and obligations. For a free consultation, call us 24 hours a day at either 604-685-2833 or toll free at 1-855-685-2833, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill out our free consultation form on the right.
We also offer you a legal contingency fee of 20%, the lowest in the province of British Columbia for a motor vehicle accident. On an average ICBC injury claim, this can save you thousands of dollars. If you have an existing offer from ICBC, and would like us to finalize your matter for you, you will not be charged a fee on the amount of your existing offer from ICBC, and our fee will only be based on any amount recovered in excess of your current offer. You don’t pay us anything up front, you don’t make any payments along the way, and you don’t pay us anything until we resolve your ICBC injury claim for you. In reality, no money ever leaves your pockets, as our fee comes out of the settlement money. For your convenience, home and hospital appointments are also available.
We also serve clients throughout British Columbia, whether you are a resident of British Columbia, or a non-resident of British Columbia, that have been injured in a motor vehicle accident in British Columbia.
