Critical Time Limits in Vancouver Personal Injury Cases

There are strict time limits on applications for no-fault accident benefits and that govern whether you can sue an at-fault driver for compensation for your injuries. If you miss them, you may be denied compensation. In this case, what you don’t know can definitely hurt you. Experienced personal injury lawyers know the time limits you face, what paperwork needs to be filed with ICBC and other insurers, and can assist in ensuring that your rights are protected.

Common situations where strict time limits may affect your rights include:

  • Applying for ICBC Accident Benefits (also called Part 7 Benefits, No-Fault or Recovery Benefits)
  • Hit and Run Claims
  • Claims of Negligence Against a Municipality
  • Suing the At-Fault Driver for Damages
  • Suing ICBC if you are denied Part 7 Accident Benefits
  • Wrongful Death Claims
  • Infant Claims (Persons under 19)

How time limits are applied to you will depend on the specific facts in your case. Missing time limits can have serious negative consequences and can generate serious problems if not dealt with effectively, efficiently and in a timely fashion. To be certain your rights are protected you should speak to a lawyer about your case.
