Graduated Licensing

Article Number: 
RoadRules Category: 

New drivers in British Columbia are subject to the Graduated Licensing program. This program was introduced as a result of concerns about the statistic that one in five new divers is involved in a crash during the first two years of driving. Reportedly, age is not a factor, so this is not just a “young driver” problem.

What is a Tort Claim?

Article Number: 

A “tort” claim is what most people will refer to as an “ICBC claim”. It is a claim for compensation for injuries. However, an “ICBC claim” involves two separate but overlapping claims. One is the claim for Part 7 benefits, discussed last week. Those benefits are paid without reference to the issue of “who is to blame”.

Hit and Run Victim?

Article Number: 
RoadRules Category: 

By statute, ICBC is responsible for payment of claims caused by the negligent actions of an unidentifiable motorist.

What is LVI?

Article Number: 
RoadRules Category: 

In the early 1990’s ICBC introduced a program to deny claims arising from relatively minor accidents. Initially the term “minimal/no damage” was used to designate this approach. Basically, if following a crash the damage to the vehicles was minor, no claims for injuries would be paid.

Preventing Car Theft

Article Number: 
RoadRules Category: 

ICBC reports paying out over $1 Billion over the past decade for theft and vandalism claims. These losses almost invariably relate to parked vehicles.
