ICBC is ultimately involved in all claims resulting from car accidents that occur in British Columbia. Before you speak with an adjuster about your collision, it is advisable to contact a lawyer who can advise you on your legal rights, of which even ICBC may not be fully aware.
At Gantzert Law, our practice is devoted to representing car accident claimants. Over our many years of doing this work we have represented hundreds of injury sufferers in their claims against ICBC. Our clients include those who have been involved in a variety of kinds of vehicle collisions, including:
We can give you an informed and objective assessment of your car accident claim and advise as to how you can access the full range of benefits you are entitled to.
Although you can undergo the claims process on your own, you will have to rely on ICBC to tell you what your rights are. Your particular adjuster may be unaware of specific benefits you are entitled to or be unwilling to offer them. Unlike a Vancouver car accident injury lawyer who represents you, ICBC is not required to look out for your interests.
When you meet with our law firm, we will explain how the claims process works and how we can help you. As your legal counsel, we are dedicated to working to get you the highest possible compensation for your injuries.
When you meet with an ICBC adjuster, he or she will ask you for details about your accident, income and medical history. The insurer is not necessarily entitled to all of this information and the process may be both stressful and intimidating. Before you sign any forms, it is important to discuss them with a lawyer who can tell you if it is in your best interest to sign.
At Gantzert Law, we dedicate our practice to assisting car accident victims to obtain needed compensation from ICBC. Since he was once contract counsel for ICBC, our founding lawyer, René Gantzert, knows how ICBC approaches claimants and how this approach may be to the detriment of accident victims.
Specifically, the insurer's objective is to settle claims quickly, often before the full extent of your injuries is known. As an experienced trial lawyer who will pursue your claim into a courtroom if necessary, René Gantzert is a strong advocate for you and your needs.
