Learn about how BC’s “no-fault” auto regime has impacted motorists who are involved in motor vehicle accidents after May 1, 2021, and the adjusters faced with handling their claims.  The focus will be on the effect of these changes for out-of-province insurers.  Presenters from Dolden Wallace Folick will provide a brief overview of BC’s “no-fault” auto regime, Enhanced Care Benefits, new rules on limiting lawsuits respecting personal injury and property damage, key definitions under the Insurance (Vehicle) Act, and Insurer priority rights where an out-of-province vehicle or insured is involved in an accident in BC. Several common case scenarios will also be addressed including the effect of the new rules on cyclists.  Presenters will be prepared to answer questions from attendees about problems and claims they are currently addressing.
