If you are injured in an accident you will likely be entitled to compensation for a range of expenses under Part 7 of the Insurance (Vehicle) Regulation. In addition to your medical expenses, ICBC is required to pay other benefits, such as disability benefits if you are off work, benefits to pay for assistance with household expenses you are unable to do most of your household chores, and funeral and other ‘death’ benefits if an individual has passed away as a result of the accident. However, your entitlement to such benefits is not automatic, and you must apply for them as well as take other specific steps to ensure that you receive them. Many individuals fail to so so, simply because they are unaware of their entitlement to such benefits. A consultation with a personal injury or ICBC lawyer can ensure you are informed of your rights under the legislation and receive the full compensation you are entitled to.
