We continue to represent our existing clients that were injured in motor vehicle accidents prior to May 1, 2021. As of May 1, 2021 ICBC under the NDP government has moved to a no-fault insurance model. Under no-fault insurance, the injured party loses their right to sue for damages. In many cases the injured party not entitled to receive any money from ICBC for their injuries. Instead the injured party could receive payments, like one might receive workers compensation board (WCB) payments. For example, if you are injured in an accident, ICBC might pay for your treatments and lost wages, but they will not pay you any money for your injuries regardless of how serious they are. In many cases the injured party will be representing themselves (no lawyer) and will be dealing with ICBC on their own, which ultimately puts the injured party at a serious disadvantage.

Accidents occurring from tripping and falling on someone else’s property.
After April 1, 2019 ICBC should be fully funding your treatments. You shouldn’t be paying anything out of pocket for treatments. ICBC will only fund and reimburse treatment pursuant to the rates below:
ICBC Treatment Funding Per Session
We recommend finding a treatment provider who charges a maximum of the prescribed amount per session and bills this amount directly to ICBC. If you treat at treatment practitioners who are charging higher rates than the prescribed rates, you will likely not be receiving reimbursement from ICBC for any amount in excess of the prescribed rates.
All receipts for medical treatment, equipment, and other out-of-pocket expenses (including prescriptions, treatment sessions, medical equipment) must be submitted to ICBC within 60 days of the treatment or purchase date or it may not be reimbursed.
The amount of TTDs are capped at a maximum of $740/week and is calculated at 75% of a person’s average weekly earnings in the 52 weeks before the accident. You normally have to use up E.I. and extended benefits through your employer first before ICBC will consider giving you TTD benefits.
