Q: When should I get a lawyer?
Don't delay. You should meet with a lawyer as soon as possible after your motor vehicle accident, and certainly before you talk to ICBC.
A lawyer will protect your legal rights and give you the best advice on how to get a fair settlement. Even if you have already met with ICBC or have been negotiating with them for some time. It is always wise to consult with a lawyer before settling your injury claim.
