Personal Injury
In British Columbia

In British Columbia most personal injury cases arise from car accidents, and ICBC always has to be involved if the car is registered in British Columbia. If the vehicle is registered outside of British Columbia, then other insurers are involved.

Our firm in West Vancouver deals with not only ICBC car accident cases but with any other kind of personal injury case. If you have been injured, no matter what the cause, contact Goluboff & Mazzei on the North Shore for a free thirty-minute consultation to determine if you have a triable claim.

Limitation Periods


In British Columbia, in most cases you have two years in which to commence a legal action against the party at fault.

Claims Against ICBC

However, if you have been injured by an uninsured driver or a person whose identity unknown to you then you must name ICBC as a defendant in the action. In these circumstances your limitation period is one year from the date your claim arose.

Claims Against City/Municipality

ICBC Claims

Not all injuries resulting from a car accident will be compensated by ICBC. If you are driving your vehicle in the course of your employment and are injured by another person driving in the course of their employment your injury claim will be handled by workers compensation.

If you have been injured in a car accident and you have made a claim your first step should be complete a Part 7 No Fault Benefits application.

Role Of The Adjuster

The ICBC adjusters’ job is to manage the claim on behalf of ICBC. Their main objective is to resolve the claim as economically as possible. Even though the adjusters may try to handle the claim in a fair and reasonable manner, they are working for the insurance company, and will pay you as little as they can.
