Discomfort negates the seriousness of the injury. Why would you sue a ski hill that didn't cause the injury?

To the OP:

ICBC’s soft tissue injury settlement guidelines apply particularly to whiplash injuries and a cap on damages for these injuries ranges from $6,500 – $15,000, depending on the severity and duration of the injury. British Columbia Courts are not bound by ICBC’s soft tissue injury settlement guidelines. For this reason it is important to access reported court judgments to determine the potential value of a claim for non-pecuniary damages. It cannot be overstated that these “guidelines” are internal policies and a court is not bound by them.

I haven't read through this to see if it is pertinent:

Why do we pay people for hurting themselves ? I understand if its life changing. But even a broken leg. Suck it up. I dont understand why people feel entitled to a payday for getting hurt .
Now they want to take our guns away . That would be just fine. Take em away from the criminals first . Ill gladly give u mine. "Charlie Daniels"

I'm sure the OP doesn't care - they asked a simple question.

Did someone hit you and cause your injury? No? Just you own darn fault? Understand the difference? No?

You are just plain and simply wrong. Period.

Thanks for sharing that. I wish I had known about the link before I was in my accident, instead of my ignorant, non-internet savvy self having to wait for ICBC’s words only. Not that it matters now anyways, although I gained spine damage and a minor concussion alongside the whiplash. ICBC covered some treatments I needed for recovery, but I wouldn’t have asked were my case not as severe. ‘‘Twas nice of them.

Are you suggesting the OP was just trying to get money? I hope not because that would be horrible. I guess everyone that gets injured is just a scammer. Wow!
Your rates are going up for many reasons but not from innocent victims of stupid drivers. Maybe the stupid drivers that cause the accidents or the near non-existing penalties for scamming need to be held more accountable, but not the innocent victims. Not enough energy to stop the scammers and make them pay and pay hard. Lax penalties do not dissuade criminal behaviour. Scammers, real scammers need jail time.

Nope you are the one that is saying, via innuendo, that the OP is a baby and to suck it up. Innocent victim being told to suck it up. A kin to my previous post, blaming the victim. Different scale but same idea.

as i have already said if one misses work or cant work or has to change professions youre absolutely entitled to compensation however claiming because your neck is a little sore is bs and should be treated as such people like that are exactly why my rates go up
