Here’s a good example why. A Surrey couple who lied to ICBC in an attempt to avoid paying $801 in deductible and increased premium costs related to a Newton traffic crash are now on the hook for more than $200,000 after their deceit was exposed. Amarjeet Panag was driving her kids home from Khalsa School in Newton in 2006 when she crashed her husband Bahadur Panag’s Chevrolet Malibu into a Dodge van at 72nd Avenue and 130th Street. It was a serious collision, causing significant injury and damage. The court heard that Mr. Panag talked a friend, Harinder Grewal, into fraudulently passing himself off as an independent witness to the collision, in their favour. But ICBC sussed this out. After finding Mrs. Panag entirely liable for the crash, ICBC concluded that she and her husband were guilty of fraud and, because of that, their own car insurance coverage was forfeit. The insurance corporation determined the Panags were liable for the $188,772.86 it paid out in claims related to the crash and went after them in court. A trial was held in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver and Justice Christopher Grauer found in ICBC’s favour. see ICBC FRAUD › page 9 Go fly a kite Matt Sokalski takes advantage of the sunshine on Tuesday and flies his sport kite on White Rock Beach.
