I hate to burst your bubble.

But ICBC is an insurance company.

And all insurance companies really care about is their bottom line.

It’s really that simple.

So what does that mean for you?

It means you’ve got a scrap on your hands.

Seriously, do you think ICBC isn’t going to put up a fight?

And rest assured it’s not going to be a fair one.

You see,  ICBC will do anything within their power to try and defeat your compensation claim.

Just look at this story about a Surrey man who’s finally been awarded compensation for a head-on collision on the Pattullo Bridge in 2005.

The victim was just 12 years old at the time of the collision.

And at the age of 21 he’s still suffering from chronic pain and psychological problems caused by his car accident.

 In fact, his problems were so severe that he developed an addiction to marijuana which arose from his efforts to try and cope with his physical and mental pain.

It’s a tragic story.

You see, this poor guy deserves every cent of the $517,346.68 a judge has awarded him for his pain and suffering, loss of earnings and future care costs.

But ICBC thought otherwise.

Their lawyers fought tooth and nail to try and defeat the victim’s claim.

They even went so far as to say that his addiction was a personal habit rather than the fallout from a tragic accident.

This is just one example of the lengths to which ICBC will go to try and avoid paying you the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

So what’s the moral of this story?? You’re going to have to stand up and fight to get what you deserve.

That means you’re going to need someone in your corner. Someone who isn’t afraid to stand up for you. Someone who’ll go the distance to make sure you get treated fairly.

At McComb Witten we don’t turn the other cheek.

You might say we’re prepared to go toe-to-toe with ICBC to make sure that their “bottom line” doesn’t get in the way of your right to fair compensation.

Involved in a collision that wasn’t your fault?
