ICBC Tip-Of-The-Month (May 2015): Top 10 Mistakes (#5)


Mistake #5: You Are Not Prepared For Your First Meeting With An ICBC Adjuster

The initial meeting with ICBC can be complicated and sets the foundation for your claim.  Before seeing ICBC, contact your doctor's office, physiotherapist or chiropractor and confirm that dates that you received treatments before the accident in relation to prior health problems.  ICBC is often looking for "the pre-existing condition" to diminish your current claim. See previous post on pre-existing conditions: click here

If you think you are partly at-fault for the collision, speak to an experienced ICBC personal injury lawyer immediately so they can prepare you for the initial interview or take over conduct of the matter to protect your interests. Failure to do this could jeopardize your claim. Getting yourself into a dispute about fault can be stick-handled better by a lawyer.
