ICBC Enhanced Care

On May 1st, 2021, ICBC made a set of changes to the rights and benefits available to persons injured in motor vehicle accidents under the new No Fault regime in British Columbia.

Contact Us

I’ve heard about ICBC’s “Enhanced Care” changes – does this mean I can no longer sue the driver responsible for my accident?

Not necessarily. If your accident occurred prior to May 1st, 2021, your right to sue a negligent driver for harms you suffered has not been affected by the recent ICBC changes. However, any accidents occurring after this date are subject to the new ban on motor vehicle litigation. For more information on the Enhanced Care changes, check out our guide on ICBC’s No Fault regime in BC.

4 Benefits of Working with ASFS

Three and a half decades of service have given us a tremendous amount of experience, perspective, and know-how. The last thing you need when dealing with a serious personal injury is a legal team that is inexperienced. The stakes are too high. We employ some of the best injury lawyers in Victoria to give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re dealing with professionals who have proven their abilities time and time again.

When dealing with a personal injury, you need more than just legal support. You need access to medical and engineering professionals. Sometimes, the insurance company will be happy to provide you with a medical professional, but we see that as a conflict of interest. That’s why we provide our clients with access to unbiased medical professionals that can objectively assess your injury.

We make it easy for you to get in touch with us and receive a case evaluation. Our goal is to help you understand the reality of your situation, what issues are at play, and the likelihood of a successful lawsuit. You also get a glimpse at what working with us would be like, and we take the extra effort to make sure you’re comfortable and in agreement with all of our actions and decisions.

The prospect of hiring legal help for a personal injury case is frightening to many people who ask themselves: What if I don’t win? What if I still have to pay for my legal help without the money from a successful case? The good news is when you work with our experienced lawyers, you don’t. You only pay us for our work if we win your case through a settlement or trial. This is our commitment to help you find the best lawyer for your case.
