If you have been hurt in a car accident recently, there are many things you should know, including your entitlement to Compensation.
You may be entitled to immediate compensation for your injuries, especially if you are unable to work. You may also be entitled to coverage for your medical expenses, prior to your claim being settled.
You are mistaken if you believe that ICBC will properly compensate you for your injuries! In fact, even if the accident is not your fault, chances are high that you may get the impression that ICBC does not have your best interests in mind. You may find yourself: Why is my insurer behaving as if they are working for the other party’s insurance company – and not me?! This is because ICBC wants to keep the cost of compensating you as low as possible.
An experienced Personal Injury Lawyer will maximize the compensation that you receive from the insurance company. Don’t sell yourself short. This includes your physical and emotional needs, not to mention your need to support yourself and your family financially after an accident.
Hire a Lawyer right away. Generally, Personal Injury Lawyers offer reasonable contingency (percentage) arrangements so that you don’t pay your lawyer until your claim is settled.
