Common Law & Tort Rights
People who are injured in a car accident that’s the fault of another person can also make a “Common Law,” or “Tort” claim against the person who injured them.
ICBC is often the insurer of the negligent person and the insurer responsible for the Part 7 benefits claim. As ICBC is the insurer of the Part 7 claim, and the defendant in the Tort claim, people often get ICBC’s obligations to them in each claim confused.
In the Tort claim, an injured person can claim damages for pain and suffering and all past and future monetary losses arising from their injuries from the person who caused the accident.
