Injuries due to Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents cause injuries every day in British Columbia. Because of car accidents (amongst others), there are thousands of injuries in British Columbia every year. Our lives, and our livelihoods, are at risk every time we get inside a vehicle. An accident can happen any place and at any time.
A motor vehicle accident may occur at any speed. Low velocity impact (LVI) accidents are less likely to cause broken bones, but can still result in whiplash and other soft tissue injuries. High velocity accidents may cause all of the damages in a low velocity accident, with the added probability of a head injury or spinal cord injury. No matter what type of accident you have been involved in, it is in your best interest to seek medical attention immediately and to follow your doctor’s instructions.
Contacting an ICBC Lawyer
Your doctor may tell you to take your time to allow the healing process to occur, but financial considerations and stress might cause you to feel like you have no options. It is best to consult with a personal injury lawyer before you speak with an ICBC adjuster so that you can be made aware of the relief you are entitled to. Healing properly from personal injuries takes patience and diligence. Do not underestimate the process and effort that you will be required to make in order to make your best recovery. A personal injury lawyer can be of great assistance here because he or she is familiar with ICBC’s process and can fight on your behalf to get you the treatment you require.
ICBC has it’s own adjusters, doctors, and lawyers working on its behalf. You want to make sure that you have professionals who are concerned representing your best interests and not the corporation’s bottom line working for you, such as your doctor and your lawyer.
