It’s unfortunate, but motor vehicle accidents continue to be one of the leading causes of personal injury in British Columbia’s lower mainland and Greater Vancouver. According to ICBC crash statistics for 2011, more than 29,200 people were injured in just over 96,200 accidents. In other words, says personal injury lawyer Tim Louis, more than 30 percent of the people involved in vehicle crashes that year suffered a personal injury of some kind.

You owe it to yourself not to make any hasty decisions following a motor vehicle accident
The Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) will attempt to have you settle a personal injury claim as soon as possible. It is in the company’s best interests to reach an agreement quickly because it keeps the overall costs down. It should go without saying, however, that these speedy settlements are definitely not in your best interests.
Tim Louis & Company has represented thousands of motor vehicle accident personal injury clients over the years, and Tim knows that ICBC will do everything in its power to ensure you do not get the settlement you deserve from such an ICBC claim. It always starts with a tempting initial offer, but Tim says in most instances that figure is much lower than a judge might determine when all the evidence is weighed. This is particularly true when it comes to those nagging, long-term injuries that only set in months after the accident takes place.
