No-fault benefits are also known as part 7 benefits under ICBC regulations. These benefits provide payment for medical and rehabilitation expenses and wage benefits in the event of an injury. In the event of death, no-fault benefits provide payment of funeral expenses and loss-of-support benefits.
No-fault benefits are generally available to anyone injured or killed in a motor vehicle accident in British Columbia, or to any BC resident injured or killed in a motor vehicle accident in North America. These benefits are typically available regardless of who was at fault in the accident.
It is not necessary, nor a good idea, to provide ICBC with a signed statement to obtain no-fault benefits. These statements are used by ICBC to build their defense, rather than to determine if an injured person is entitled to receive no-fault benefits.
