What is settlement?

When you have been injured as a result of a car accident or any other accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your claim. The full and final resolution of your claim is known as the settlement of your claim.

With legal representation, you could be awarded a combination of the following in settlement:

  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Compensation for lost wages
  • Compensation for future earnings
  • Payment for pain and suffering
  • Compensation for lost opportunities
  • Compensation for family and future care

If you settle with ICBC on your own, you may not receive what you’re entitled to. That is why an injured person needs to be sure that the relief they are being offered by ICBC is a fair award for their claim.

If you sign a “full and final release” agreement with ICBC to settle your claim, you will not be able to get further compensation even if your well-being continues to decline or if you continue to spend money on the after-effects of your injuries.
How can you be sure you are getting what you’re entitled to? Don’t accept an ICBC adjuster’s settlement offer without first contacting us.
