It is very important for BC residents who are injured in the United States to hire a law firm that can act for them both in the United States and in British Columbia. This is the case because most jurisdictions in the United States allow motorists to carry extremely low insurance liability policies, and BC residents have coverage from ICBC to protect them if the person who injures them does not have enough insurance. In order to deal with cross-border claims, injured BC residents need a lawyer who understands the interaction between US and Canadian law and can pursue their case for them in the United States and then pursue any coverage shortfall against ICBC in British Columbia.
