If you’ve been injured in a car accident in Kelowna then you need a lawyer who will protect your interests. ICBC doesn’t want to help you, and will look for any excuse to pay you as little as possible.
Meanwhile, you’re going to have expenses. Post-trauma medical bills that ICBC won’t pay. Dental reconstruction bills. Bills to handle services like housekeeping that you can’t handle on your own while you recover.
You’re also missing work, and may be too hurt to work again in the future.
You need the compensation that you’re entitled to under the law. Merchant Law is here to help.
ICBC wants to prove the accident was your fault.
While ICBC will still pay you some money if you were at-fault for the accident, they must pay you considerably less. They can also raise your insurance premiums.
In fact, it does them the most good if they can prove each driver was equally at fault, as both are usually covered by ICBC policies. Then they can raise both driver’s premiums while paying the bare minimum to each driver.
If the other driver was negligent you shouldn’t have to stand for this treatment. Yet your own word won’t be enough to assign blame to the other driver or to increase your payouts.
You’ll need dedicated lawyers who will talk to witnesses, get evidence, and help the judge, jury, and ICBC understand the true facts of the case. We want to get you enough coverage to cover all your expenses, not just the paltry sums that ICBC will offer if they can justify saying you were at fault for the accident.
Having a lawyer helps you avoid costly mistakes.
ICBC adjusters will try to sweet talk you or intimidate you into signing documents you shouldn’t sign, making statements you shouldn’t make, and making mistakes with your medical care.
When you work with one of our personal injury attornies you’ll get to deal with someone who will handle ICBC for you. That gives you peace of mind. You can focus on healing while we focus on getting you the money you’ll need to get back on your feet.
We’ll also give you plenty of advice about what to do while you’re healing. There are mistakes you can make while seeking care that we should talk about before your case gets too old.
