icbc claim process

What is the value of my claim?

A natural question that many of our clients ask is: “What is my claim worth?” There are several factors that determine the compensation to which an injured person is entitled. A skilled personal injury lawyer can help you understand the process, provide advice on the specifics of your claim and fight for the justice that you deserve.

If you have been injured in a car accident or suffered some other kind of injury you may be entitled to compensation. A number of factors affect the potential value of your claim and in the eyes of the law your claim is unique.

There is no replica of your experience and of the specific factors that contributed to your injury. It’s impossible to put an exact price on a claim without first seeing how long it takes for someone to recover from their injury.

As a client of Spraggs & Co. we perform a comprehensive legal analysis of the factors at play in your claim. We refer to relevant case law and precedents to develop a ball-park range of the potential value of your claim. We can hone this estimate with a medical prognosis.

Depending on the nature and severity of your claim, most doctors are reluctant to provide a prognosis for at least 12 to 18 months. Most injures have not settled before that time frame: sometimes injury symptoms will subside only to flare-up or return when you think they may have been resolved. At other times you may be left in a weakened condition that leaves you more susceptible to future injury.

At Spraggs & Co. we restrict our practice to helping injured people get access to justice. Since 1971 we have helped thousands of injured people get fair compensation for their injuries. Our team of skilled lawyers can help you navigate the claims process to get justice.

Contact us at 604.464.3333 for a free no-obligation consultation to discuss your unique circumstances. The exact value of your claim is as unique as your circumstances and your road to recovery. Talk to us before you speak to ICBC.
