Is my claim smaller because I am a senior?
ICBC Claims for seniors are generally smaller than they are for younger people. This is because the income loss portion of the claim is generally lower or non-existent.
However, income loss only represents one aspect of injury claim valuation. Car crash injuries impact seniors and they are entitled to be compensated for them. Hiring a lawyer can be particularly important when you are a senior so that your ICBC adjuster does not try to minimize your claim in other valuation areas.
- Seniors can be hit especially hard by crash injuries
- ‘Senior mentality’ can stand in the way
- Seniors often get a break in personal injury claim lawsuits
