In recent years, the British Columbia government has increased the administrative penalties for drunk driving in an attempt to reduce accidents. Despite these legislative changes, intoxication remains a leading cause of fatal car accidents in the province. According to ICBC, it is one of the top three causes of fatal crashes. Approximately 29 percent of motor vehicle fatalities involve drunk driving.
At Sugden, McFee & Roos LLP, we have handled drunk driving accident claims for more than 25 years. We know that our clients who have been injured by drunk drivers are hurting physically, financially and emotionally. We strive to ease their burdens by managing all aspects of their ICBC claims, aggressively working to obtain full and fair compensation for the damages they have already suffered as well as the hardships they will continue to endure in the future.
Compensation for ICBC car accident claims may include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, out-of-pocket expenses (including medical expenses), the cost of future care, past and future wage loss and loss of earning capacity. Contact our lawyers to discuss your claim and the ways in which your injury has impacted your life. We will help you identify all possible avenues of financial recovery.
