What Are Some of the Time Limits for ICBC Cases?

Bad driving records

Bad driving records often make people feel guilty, especially when they are involved in a car accident.

From the time we earned our driving license, it is not always that we are in good shape on the road. Sometimes accidents do happen, which might make your driving record looks bad. These unexpected mistakes often haunt one’s life for very long time. For example, your insurance premium is most likely affected by these incidents.

Other situations when these bad driving records might come back at you is when you get into another accident in the future. It is not uncommon to see someone who involved in a car accident feels guilty themselves if they already have a bad driving record.

It is important to note that, however, bad driving records do not automatically put someone at fault for a car accident. So if you worry that the accident can be blamed on them just because of their bad driving records before that accident, worry not.

In every car accident, what is important and relevant in accessing who is at fault and at how many percentage, is what happened at the time and place of the accident.

In Steve Kooner Law Corp, we always encourage our clients to stand their grounds and should not be worried if they have had a bad driving record. If you feel uncomfortable about this issue, speak to a car accident injury lawyer of your trust.
