There’s a fascinating article in today’s Province newspaper that exposes the issues that victims face when they’re trying to claim compensation after a car accident.

The article is even more intriguing given that it involves Cody Franson who is a former Vancouver Giant and who currently plays for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Franson’s ICBC injury claim is set to go to trial on June 16th.

So what’s Frason’s case all about?

It dates back to a car crash that took place in July 2008. Franson alleges that the injuries he suffered in the accident stopped him from making the Nashville Predators’ NHL roster that fall.

Costing him a cool $500k in lost earnings.

Franson made the Predators’ roster a year later. And has since gone on to make a name for himself in the NHL with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

However, Franson recently became a restricted free agent.

And in this regard Franson claims that the accident continues to have a negative financial impact on his hockey career. In particular, his ability to negotiate a competitive contract as a restricted free agent.

Ok, so most good Canadian kids don’t stand a chance of making it to NHL.

And yes, despite his injuries, Franson did.

But that’s not the issue when it comes to an ICBC injury claim.

You see every injured person’s compensation claim is unique.


Well, everyone is different. So every case is different.

And more to the point, compensation needs to be evaluated in the context of the unique circumstances of the injured individual.

In Cody Franson’s case the issue is whether his injuries have stopped him from reaching his full earning potential in the NHL.

So, if you play hockey in a beer league the issue in your case might be that you can’t enjoy your favourite form of recreation anymore.

If you’re a mom the issue might be that you can’t look after your kids without support.

Or if you’re a construction worker you might not be able to do the only job you’ve ever know.

You see, everyone is different. And so is their ICBC claim.

That’s why your accident is about more than your injuries. It’s about you.

We’re all different and so are our stories.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional hockey player or a stay-at-home mom. Your case is about how your life has been changed by your injuries.

It’s really about your story.

You see, a well prepared person injury claim is custom tailored.

Not off the rack.
