The Drunk Driver

Drunk drivers are a menace on our roadways. If the drunk driver leaves the scene of the accident, your compensation will come from other sources. For example, the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims fund. This is a government fund that will compensate you for personal injury up to $200,000. It does not cover property damage. If your damages are greater, then your auto policy likely has an SEF 44 Family Protection Endorsement to cover the remainder of your damages. Very specific rules and notice periods apply to these types of cases and you must speak with a qualified personal injury lawyer who understands the law in this area.

I sustained a severe brain injury when I was hit by a car while walking in a back alley. I had no idea what I needed to do because there was no insurance available for the hit and run driver.

Joe informed me that there was a special government fund from which I could collect up to $200,000. As a resident of B.C., there was also up to a million in coverage under my wife’s auto policy known as “underinsured motorist protection.” Joe filed 2 lawsuits and fought very hard with ICBC and the lawyer representing the government fund.

I was very pleased with how Joe represented me and I had complete faith in his ability to ensure I was properly compensated for my brain injury, past and future wage loss, cost of future care and other expenses. After several lowball offers, Joe just kept pushing the case to trial and we eventually settled out of Court. It was a long hard fight but Joe got me the result I wanted. I highly recommend him.
