If you are not at fault
If you are not at fault, you may be entitled to Accident Benefits from ICBC and settlement payments from the other driver. The at-fault motorist's insurance could pay for your vehicle repairs, rental car or reimbursement.
Accident Benefits are available to almost everybody in British Columbia who is injured in a motor vehicle crash—no matter who is at fault.
If you are injured, you may claim settlement payments for:
- medical treatment beyond the limits of Accident Benefits coverage
- net wage loss beyond the limits of Accident Benefits coverage, and
- pain and suffering.

Damage to your vehicle
The damage to your vehicle will be covered first by your Collision coverage, then by the other driver's insurance. In addition, Accident Benefits are available to almost everybody in British Columbia who is injured in a motor vehicle accident — no matter who is at fault.
Your collision deductible
When the other driver is at-fault, your deductible may be reimbursed or waived.
If you are a victim in a hit-and-run claim, you are covered up to a maximum of $200,000 for damages and injuries.
Please note: hit-and-run claims are not available for crashes on private driveways and private underground parking areas. Talk to your adjuster for details.
If the at-fault driver has no insurance for a crash in B.C., you could be covered up to $200,000 in settlement payments. Talk to your adjuster for more details.
