Let's start right from the start.

WHAT exactly is an ICBC injury claims?

An ICBC injury claim is the type of claim you make if you've been injured due to another B.C. driver's carelessness.

And the day you are injured you effectively step on to a battle field.

The opposition is the insurance company that insured the vehicle which collided with you or your car.

And in British Columbia that means ICBC.

Why is ICBC "your opposition?"

There are a swack of legal technicalities involved.

But the bottom line is simple.

If you were hurt in a car accident in British Columbia. And the car that collided with you or your vehicle had B.C. plates. You'll be looking to ICBC to compensate you for your injuries and losses.

ICBC, like any other auto insurer, wants to pay out as little as possible to people making injury claims. That's simply the nature of the beast.

You, on the other hand,  should be seeking to be fairly and fully compensated.

So, by defintion, your ultimate goal and ICBC's ultimate goal are by design opposition in nature to one another.

Right from the get go.

Being clear on  YOUR RELATIONSHIP  with ICBC ( right out of the gate) is CRUCIAL

And, more to the point, NOT APPRECIATING appreciating the TRUE NATURE of your relationship with ICBC could cost you dearly.
