So almost 2 weeks ago I was going through a green light at an intersection and was taken out by a 66 year old ******** making an oncoming left turn. I'm basically fine just my back is still nagging me. Couple days after the accident the ICBC guy who declared my bike a writeoff called me and said the most they can pay me is declared value. I bitched and said I need compensation for tax, gear, everything else directly related to this accident. He said they don't pay tax and declared value is the most he can give me and to take other losses up with the adjuster. So I meet with my adjuster and he says (after I bring it up of course) they owe me the PST on the declared value and a GST voucher for if I buy a brand new bike. That first fucker straight up lied to me how can they legally do that?? The other thing is I had a set of Powers installed 45 minutes before the accident, they had maybe 20kms on them. I definetly should be compensated for that but I know the guy will be a dick about it. I'll be dealing with him tomorrow I'm hoping someone has been through this before and can offer me some advice. If you've had a writeoff did you get paid for tax and recent purchases?
