One of the most frequent questions I'm asked as a BC Personal Injury Lawyer is how much is my claim worth?.
This is an important question for anyone injured through the fault of another in British Columbia. When negotiating with ICBC (or another Insurance company) the playing field is typically imbalanced in that the Claims Adjuster has lots of experience in valuing personal injury claims. Unless you are an injury claims lawyer you understandably would have little experience in valuing these claims and may need help valuing your losses.
It is important to empower yourself for the negotiation because in tort claims the insurer is negotiating on behalf of the person that injured you. With this in mind, here is a brief video introduction discussing some of the common 'heads of damages' that are frequently addressed in BC personal injury lawsuits. I hope this information is of some assistance in balancing the information playing field.
