Making an ICBC Claim
Unfortunately a pedestrian struck by a vehicle will often suffer serious injuries, even if the vehicle was moving slowly at the time of the accident. Sometimes ICBC will try to put some of the blame for the accident on the pedestrian. Examples of alleged negligence on the pedestrian’s part can be:
- not crossing at a crosswalk
- failing to keep a proper lookout to ensure one’s own safety
- wearing dark clothes in a poorly lit area or at a time of poor visibility
- crossing a crosswalk against a light
