If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident and want to make a claim against ICBC for damages, get the lawyers that Surrey (Cloverdale) residents have trusted for years on your side. Learn more about how the ICBC claim process works and how a MacMillan Tucker & Mackay lawyer can make the difference in your claim.
What Makes an ICBC Claim
You may be entitled to make a claim for one or more of the following, and our lawyers can help you determine which claims make sense in your situation:
Whether you’ve suffered whiplash, a concussion, orthopedic injury (such as a broken bone), brain injury or any other injury from a motor vehicle accident, talk with our lawyers about the possibility of pursuing a claim.
Claim Filing Time Restrictions
It’s important to remember that in most cases there is a 2 year time limit for pursuing a claim for damages from a motor vehicle accident. The earlier you consult with a lawyer, the better. Not only can we potentially expedite the process, but we can also help to ensure that your claim is as strong as possible.
How Long Will My Claim Take?
The length of time it takes to assemble and present your claim rests primarily on the nature of your injuries. It’s only after the nature of your injury—whether it’s temporary or permanent—is determined that we then have the information and ammunition necessary to properly and completely present your claim.
Getting You the Treatment You Need, Now
You might wonder what happens to you while you wait for your claim to be settled. Can you get the care you need to deal with your injuries? How will that be paid for? Even if the insurance company won’t agree to pay for private treatment, we can try to help you locate a place that will establish a “tab” to be paid as soon as the case settles. Our lawyers can even help get you to a specialist, even without the referral of your general practitioner. We can also arrange for procedures like MRIs to be completed privately, faster than the public medical system.
