Hit by a car while working at 7-Eleven?

Strange but true.

It's an average day for the employee of  the 7-Eleven located at No. 3 Rd and Blundell in Richmond.

When suddenly, out of the clear blue sky, a car rockets through a brick wall.

Right into the store.

And the 7-11 employee gets injured.

So, can the  7-11 employee make a claim through ICBC?


You see, because the employee was "working" at the time of the accident he/she is likely covered by the Workers Compensation Board ( WCB). So, I think it's pretty safe to say that he/she is eligible for benefits through WCB.


The missing piece of the puzzle is whether the driver of the vehicle which caused the 7-11 employees injuries was also "working" as the time of this accident ( delivering pizza, courier, etc.).

You see, if the driver of the vehicle  was "working" then the ONLY option the 7-11 employee has is to make a claim through WCB.

But, if the driver of the car WASN'T "working" at the time of the accident.

Then, Mr./Mrs./Miss 7-11 employee has a CHOICE of claims.

He/She can choose between making a claim through WCB or  making a claim through ICBC.

Involved in a car accident while you were WORKING?

Considering which way to go with your injury claim?
