CAR ACCIDENT CLAIMS
The most common types of ICBC injury claims occur when there is a motor vehicle accident in B.C. between two motor vehicles. Generally speaking, in a two vehicle collision, the other driver is more likely to be at fault in cases where he or she:
- cuts into your lane quickly, without signaling or shoulder checking;
- runs a stop sign or red light;
- hits you while under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
- hits you head-on in your own lane;
- rear ends you
It is important to arrange for a free consultation with Veale Law as soon as possible after your accident, as there may be certain situations that will complicate matters:
- liability may be in dispute such as, for example, an accident in a parking lot, or at an unmarked intersection
- there may be an allegation of contributory negligence against you
- you may have been struck by an out of province driver
- you may have been struck by an uninsured driver
- you may be the victim of a hit and run accident
- you have serious injuries, and the other driver does not have enough insurance
- you are a passenger, and you may need to sue the driver of the car that you were in, which may include a family member
Regardless of the nature of the accident, there are various time limits and limitation periods that you must meet, or else all or part of your ICBC injury claims may be denied. This is another important reason to contact Veale Law as soon as possible after the accident to discuss your ICBC injury claims.

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.
