If you're a practicing Muslim you get down on your knees and prostrate yourself when you pray.

That's what your religion requires you to do.

And if you've been injured in a Vancouver car accident your ability to pray may be affected.

Seriously..... your back hurts, your neck hurts, you have a headache. And if you've injured your knees.... well that's even worse.

Your religious beliefs and your ability to pray as you're required are probably very important to you.

To your family.

And to your community.

In British Columbia the law states that " you take your victim as you find him".

What does that mean?

It means that the question of  an injured person's compensation needs to be looked at from the perspective of what was important in their life at the time their accident took place.

It means that ICBC or a court can't simply say that because "most Canadians don't pray this way" your beliefs and the way you pray should' not be taken into consideration when it comes to determining what's fair compensation.

Here in B.C. we live in a mulitcultural society.

People are free to choose how they wish to live their lives.

That includes their ability to practice their religion.

So, the bottom line is simple.

If you're Muslim and your ability to pray has been affected by the injuries you've suffered in your Vancouver car accident you deserve to be compensated for it.
