People injured in a car accident are entitled to two types of benefits from ICBC. First, there are "no fault" benefits. These are benefits provided to a person regardless of who was at fault for the accident. Typically, these benefits provide compensation for:
* some medical and rehabilitation costs
* partial replacement for wages
* compensation for an inability to do house work
No fault benefits are usually the smallest part of a person's total compensation. They provide only a fraction of the real cost of an accident on a person's life.
Second, there are "tort" benefits. These are benefits that can only be claimed by people injured by the fault of someone else. The purpose of these benefits is to compensate an innocent person for the real cost of an accident in that person’s life. Tort benefits include:
* money for pain and suffering
* past and future wage loss
* cost of care and all reasonable expenses caused by the accident
Tort benefits can be substantial. There is no limit on what the court can award. The amount of compensation is only limited by the evidence.
