Happy Canada Day!
Happy Canada Day! As with all long weekends, there will be increased traffic on the road as people are eager to get on with their vacation plans. In light of this, ICBC will be stepping up their CounterAttack road checks, beginning tomorrow, July 1st, saying “Whether you’re on a busy highway filled with summer road trip travellers or just driving your regular route across town to a game at your local ball diamond, it’s important to stay focused and alert.” In the Lower Mainland alone, 180 people were injured in 460 crashes on Canada Day last year.
The other side of the picture, if you’ve already been in an accident: We’ve previously written about the dangers of posting too much on social media when you have an active ICBC claim. It’s important to keep this in mind this long weekend, even as you’re trying to keep living life normally.
If your Canada Day vacation was cut short due to a motor vehicle accident, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer. John Mickelson Law Corporation can help you acquire financial assistance and medical treatment. Our ICBC lawyers have the experience needed to maximize your personal injury settlement.
