ICBC Personal Injury Claims
Low Velocity Impact Car Collisions
The Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) may deny your personal injury claim if they believe your car collision was a low velocity impact.
ICBC estimators will examine your vehicle and depending on the type of damage and the
circumstances of the collision may refer your personal injury claim to a committee which will
decide whether or not to accept your ICBC personal injury claim.
If the committee deems your collision to be a low velocity impact collision ICBC will reject your personal injury claim and you may not receive benefits which normally would be provided to you. (See Part VII Benefits)
