Julie Lamb’s presentation addressed the following issues on underinsured motorist insurance coverage: (1) What happens when an ICBC insured is injured as a passenger in an Alberta-insured vehicle, and the tortfeasor is underinsured?; (2) What if an out-of-province claimant is injured in B.C., and the defendant driver has inadequate limits?; (3) If there is more than one policy that may respond, what is the priority of underinsured motorist insurance policies?.
