No. Once you settle with ICBC and have signed a release for your personal injury, you are not entitled to go back and claim additional compensation.
Yes. To recover the majority of benefits in a law suit you must prove the other party was completely or partially at fault for the accident. If you are completely at fault for the accident you will only be entitled to “no fault” benefits which are extremely limited. To prove fault we will obtain witness statements, photographs of the vehicle and accident scene, police reports and we may require traffic reconstruction experts in complicated cases. It is important to obtain this evidence while memories are still fresh, before vehicles have been fixed, and while the accident scene remains unchanged.
