Motor Vehicle Collisions

Knowing what to do following an accident can make the process of filing a claim, and getting the medical and financial support you deserve, much easier.

If you’re injured in a motor vehicle collision in British Columbia you should do the following:

Get the name, address, driver’s licence number and licence plate number from the other driver.

Get the names and addresses of anyone who witnessed the accident.

Call the police to report the accident. If it is a serious accident they will attend at the scene.

If you have been injured, go to the Emergency Department of the nearest hospital.

Report your claim to ICBC Dial-A-Claim by calling 1-800-910-4222. Make arrangements to have your vehicle examined by an ICBC estimator and the damage assessed.

Contact a lawyer before you make a personal injury claim with ICBC. People sometimes make statements to ICBC that can hurt their case later. It is important to talk to a lawyer first so that you fully understand your rights and obligations in making an insurance claim. ICBC is a corporation and they make profits by denying claims. The ICBC adjuster’s job is to pay you as little as possible. Our experts will ensure that you receive the compensation and care you deserve.
