Initial Medical Care

If you have been injured in an accident, it is very important to see a doctor as soon as possible to document the injuries. This will not only help you in in your recovery but also help avoid the argument from ICBC that you were not injured in the accident because you never sought early medical treatment.

If you cannot get in to see your regular doctor within 24 hours of the accident, try a walk-in clinic or emergency ward. Waiting a few days to see a doctor after an accident only heightens ICBC’s concerns about your injury claim. After all, according to ICBC, if you didn’t seek immediate treatment how injured can you possibly be?
