Changes to ICBC Insurance Claims
Significant change are coming to ICBC claims in BC. As of April 1, 2019, ICBC is imposing a mandatory cap of $5,500 for pain and suffering from “minor injuries”. Additionally, the Civil Resolution Tribunal will handle disputes over “minor injury designation”. The definition of “minor injury” excludes serious impairment, incapacity, and permanent disfigurement. The regulation expands the definition of “minor injuries” by adding to the list of specified injuries. A minor injury is not just scrapes and sprains. Whiplash is now included. Concussions and psychological conditions are also minor injuries if there is no incapacity beyond 16 weeks and if there is no substantial inability to perform the essential tasks of work/school, or activities of daily living.
