What are the TOP 3 Reasons most people don't get fairly compensated by ICBC when it comes to their ICBC injury claim ?

The answer to this question is simple and very straightforward.

Yet, most people simply choose not to deal with these 3 Reasons.

Why ? Quite frankly, most people simply don't have a strong enough desire to take the action necessary to recognize and  deal with these reasons.

Alright then, what are these 3 reasons I'm talking about ?:

1.  No Time

2.  No Idea

3.  No Money

No Time

Most people don't understand that in order to get fairly compensated for your ICBC injury claim you need to make an investment of time.

You need to take the time to see your doctor on a regular basis.

You need to take the time to follow through on whatever form of treatment or therapy your family doctor recommends. Physiotherapy, massage therapy, chiropractic treatment, accupuncture etc. Whatever your doctor recommends you need to invest the time required to see this treatment/therapy through.

I understand that we all have busy lives. But here's the thing. It's not that you have No Time. Everybody has 24 hours in a day. It's simply that some people chose not to invest the time required to properly pursue their ICBC injury claim.

No Idea

Most people have no idea how the ICBC injury claims system works. And, more to the point, they don't have a handle on  a what they need to do in order to ensure that they're get fairly compensated.

This information is readily available. In fact, the internet is overflowing with quality information about how the ICBC injury claims process works and what injured individuals need to do in order to get fairly compensated.

And yet most people don't take advantage of all this information.

Why?

Perhaps the the amount of information available online is simply overwhelming. Maybe they simply don't have the emotional or physical stamina to take all this information and distill it down and apply it. It could be that they simply don't trust the information available to them.

But anyway you slice it, many people I encounter have No Idea what's involved in dealing with their ICBC injury claim.

No Money

Many people operate on a paycheque to paycheque basis. Suffice it to say that they have little, if anything, set aside for a rainy day.

So, if they can't work for awhile their bills start to pile up. Such that even when they get back to work they're behind the financial 8 ball. And slowly but surely the internal pressure builds to " settle, settle, settle". And they become mentally  "softened up" to accept a signficantly discounted on  their settlement.

Getting to a fair settlement of your ICBC injury claim requires understanding that this process is a marathon. Not a sprint.

There will be challenges along the way. And one of those challenges may be financial. All you can do is strip your expenses down to a bare minimum and take a long run approach to your ICBC injury claim. As the old saying goes, " no pain, no gain."
