Don’t Be Your Own Worst Enemy
Depending on the nature of your ICBC injury claim, there can be strict time deadlines within which you must perform a certain action. Failure to do so can result in all or part of your claim being lost.
Perhaps one of the most important reasons for hiring Veale Law is to ensure that all time limits and limitation periods are met. Consider the following situations where failing to comply with a limitation period or time limit can result in all or part of your ICBC claim being denied:
