After a motor vehicle accident, you may be worried about what will happen – to your premiums, your vehicle, and of course, to yourself if you have been injured. You deserve a settlement that will help you get through such a trying time. To receive such a settlement, you will need to file a claim through ICBC.

What is ICBC?
The Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) is a provincial Crown corporation that provides universal auto insurance to BC motorists. They are responsible for driver licensing as well as vehicle licensing and registration.
What is an ICBC Claim?
After a motor vehicle accident or other issue, to get reimbursed for the damages you have suffered, you will need to file a claim with ICBC. You will need to report any personal injuries as well as damage to your vehicle. You will have 30 days to provide ICBC with a written report of the circumstances and consequences of any car accident, along with a 90 day due date for disclosure of an accident benefit application.
There are many instances where you should report an ICBC claim, including:
You'll undoubtedly want guidance through the recovery and claim settlement process to make sure you’re getting the most out of your claim. In many cases, you could report your claim online by yourself, but by doing this you may not get the most out of your claim because it is in ICBC’s best interest to avoid paying your settlement.
