7. Settlement Negotiations
From the time we first speak on your behalf to ICBC or other insurance companies up to moment we walk the courthouse steps, we will be negotiating a settlement to your claim. The vast majority of claims settle before trial. In some ICBC settlement cases, settlement is achieved through a process called mediation.
Mediation is an informal process, in which we hire an independent party to help reach a settlement. You have the benefit of our advice and will only recommend settlement if you are justly compensated for your losses.
