ICBC injury claims after April 1, 2019

Major changes to the ICBC injury claim process came into effect on April 1, 2019. One of the most significant changes is the manner in which ICBC will be limiting payouts for pain and suffering with respect to minor injuries arising from a motor vehicle accident.  If your injuries are assessed as a ‘minor injury’ then ICBC is placing a cap or limit of $5,500.00 for pain and suffering.

On April 1, 2019 legislation came into effect imposing a number of new rules and regulations on ‘minor injury’ ICBC claims.  Minor injury claim disputes arising from motor vehicle accidents will be heard and adjudicated by the Civil Resolution Tribunal (CRT) where the ‘pain and suffering’ damages are limited to under $50,000.00. This legislative change restricts a majority of minor injury claimants from directly accessing the Supreme Court, unless certain criteria are met.

Before you accept that your injury claim is capped, or if you have any questions about the changes to ICBC injury claims process and how they affect your rights, please contact your MacIsaac Group office.
