"Will it take longer to settle my ICBC claim if I hire a lawyer?"

 It's a question that I hear all the time.

And it's a good question to consider if you're in the midst of figuring out how you want to deal with your ICBC injury claim.

My answer to this question is always the same - YES


It's simple. This question doesn't deal with the issue of QUALITY.

Seriously,when it comes to your settlement, is you priority SPEED or QUALITY??

Because, when it comes to resolving your ICBC injury claim, it's extremely hard to get both in equal proportion.

Truth be told, some lawyers place emphasis on one at the expense of the other.

You see, if a lawyer is going to going to get you a QUALITY result that lawyer is going to need to  properly prepare you case. And often that reduces the SPEED of settlement.

There's also the question of TIMING. There are certain points during your case at which it's more advantageous to settle your claim than others ( if you're concerned about QUALITY). So, it could be that you'll have to wait longer to settle your case than you might want to in order to reach one of these strategic points in time.

Now, in a perfect world your case is resolved as quickly as possible without having to seriously jeapordize the QUALITY of your settlement. And quite frankly, that's the sweet spot my law firm trys to hit.
