On April 1, 2019, many changes came into effect which alter how ICBC treats no-fault benefit claims (sometimes known as Part 7 claims). Among the most significant changes are increases to the wage loss, homemaker, and death benefit amounts available. Previously, the government increased coverage from $150,000 to $300,000 for benefits claims which have arisen since January 1, 2018. Most accident victims will not exhaust these limits.

ICBC adjusters have the first say when accident victims seek reimbursement for treatments or other benefits. If an accident victim disagrees, decisions can often be reviewed before the Civil Resolution Tribunal. It is important to know your rights. Different rules apply to accidents which occurred before April 1, 2019.
