ICBC is taking more cases to trial. We are ready!
ICBC has in some cases (especially in late January and February) been pulling offers and replacing them with lower, more unreasonable ones in an effort to force more cases to trial. The result of such bargaining tactics is that courts usually award more than ICBC’s offers and often more than what the victim was offering to ICBC. In the below excerpt of his interview on Channel 4, the Multicultural Station, Chris talks about this ICBC tactic.
This approach drives up costs for ratepayers and makes the process harder on injured victims who already are suffering from the stresses of serious injuries.
We are ready! In the last five months, we have been revamping our operations to increase our capacity to run trials in the event that we face such hardball negotiation tactics on your injury claim. One example of how we are ready to help you is that we are ensuring that none of our lawyers will be double or triple booked for trials. Many law firms did this and were caught by surprise by ICBC’s change in tactics. We are not one of those!
We are here for you and will ensure that we put your injury claim first.
