01 May If You Are Injured in a Motor Vehicle Collision, ICBC May Put You Under Surveillance

An article released in the Vancouver Sun discusses ICBC’s use of surveillance: 


 According to the article, ICBC uses surveillance “to see if they are lying about injury claims”.  ICBC has a team that looks at photographs and status updates posted on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites. 

 The concern is that this limited information does not provide an accurate picture of what is actually going on in someone’s life. People have a tendency to post positive events, even if they have ongoing pain and suffering.  The posts often do not capture the pain and suffering that happens before or after the photograph is taken. 

If you have been injured in a collision, you need to be careful about your social media posts.
