We Help File ICBC Claims in Kelowna
Figuring out what to do after an accident can be overwhelming. And making a claim with the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia is just one more thing to worry about. That’s why at the Robert O. Levin Law Office, we help clients file ICBC claims in Kelowna so the task is taken care of and they can move forward with less stress.
As an insured driver, it's your legal responsibility to notify the ICBC if your vehicle or the one you're driving has been involved in an accident where someone was injured or any property was damaged. Claims should be made after the following:
- Auto theft
- Fire damage
- Single-vehicle accidents
- Auto equipment theft
- Multiple vehicle accidents
- Broken glass and/or windshield
We'll walk you through each step of the process – our experienced injury lawyers are here to answer your questions and advise you on the best course of action to take. When we work together, you'll have the peace of mind that your claim was set up properly.
Benefits of Hiring an ICBC Lawyer
As your legal counsel, we represent and advocate for you, not the insurance company. This is probably the biggest benefit of hiring a lawyer to handle your ICBC claims in Kelowna. We'll protect your rights and your best interest. Additionally, we can obtain evidence to dispute liability and build your defence based on expert opinions, like those of medical doctors. We can also compile statements from any witnesses present.
We understand how to work with complicated ICBC documents and negotiate a settlement. You can count on us to meet every filing deadline and handle all communication with the ICBC if needed. When you're recovering from an injury, staying updated with your claim can be a real challenge. We want you to focus on your health instead of hassling with your insurance company.
Filing an ICBC Claim in Kelowna
Reporting ICBC claims can be confusing, but if you understand the general process, it gets a little easier. ICBC should be notified of the accident within 24 hours, and they'll ask you to answer several questions, including:
- When and where the accident happened
- The driver's licence and licence plate numbers of both parties
- Whether or not you accept fault
- If you have any injuries
- If the police were called
- Were there any witnesses
After you speak to an ICBC representative, you'll be able to submit an application for benefits. Our lawyers can help you file your ICBC claim, which could involve liability or insurance coverage issues. We recommend consulting with us before speaking to the ICBC because your words should be chosen carefully. In this stressful time, you may misspeak or omit something important. When liability is being determined, your statements can be used against you, so everything you say should be as clear and concise as possible.
