Entitlement to benefits, and fault, damages and/or a minor injury determination if you were in a vehicle accident.

The CRT has jurisdiction over most motor vehicle accident claims in BC, including claims about:

  • Entitlement to accident benefits
  • ICBC’s assessment of responsibility for an accident
  • Monetary damages if you’re injured in an accident, including determination of whether an injury is a “minor injury”
  • Other types of monetary damages including property damage, vehicle damage, and lost business income

Watch Mike’s story!

Mike was in a car accident, and hurt his arm and neck. He wasn’t able to work while he recovered, so ICBC paid income replacement benefits.

Mike and ICBC don’t agree on when he should be able to return to work and if his benefits should continue.

See how the Solution Explorer can help Mike understand his options, and how easy it is to make a CRT claim.
