Campbell River Bicycle Accident Lawyers


Bicycle riders are among the most vulnerable road-users in our community. With only wearable safety gear protecting them from the perils of the road, if cyclists are involved in a collision caused by a negligent motor vehicle operator, their lives could be cut short in tragic, violent, and preventable accidents.

Those who survive serious bicycle accidents in Campbell River often sustain serious injuries as a result of the at-fault driver’s negligence. Depending on their severity, the injuries sustained in Campbell River bicycle accidents could have far-reaching and wide-ranging impacts, often adversely affecting injured cyclists’ physical, mental, and economic well-being.

Physical injuries sustained in a bicycle accident could range in severity from moderate to catastrophic. Bicycle accident victims may be unable to continue working, participating in recreational activities they once enjoyed, or even carrying out the functions of daily life independently because of the wrongful actions of a negligent motor vehicle operator.

As a result of an injury-causing bicycle accident, injured cyclists can also develop profound, debilitating mental health issues. The road to recovery can be a long, painful, and isolating one. It is not uncommon for injured bicycle accident victims in Campbell River to develop persistent, pervasive mental health issues like depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Injured bicycle accident survivors might also struggle with:

  • Insomnia
  • Other sleep disorders
  • Mental anguish
  • Mood swings
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of appetite
  • Increased stress levels
  • Alcohol use disorder
  • And more

Coping with the physical and psychological repercussions of an injurious bicycle accident can be expensive. Injured bicycle accident survivors often find themselves struggling to keep up with newly acquired injury-related expenses, particularly when their injuries force them to sustain even greater economic losses such as lost wages because of missed work or a reduced future earning capability.

If you were injured by a negligent driver before May 1, 2021, our Campbell River bicycle accident lawyers may be able to help you pursue a civil claim against the at-fault motorist in an attempt to recover the maximum amount of damages to which you might be entitled. Unfortunately, if your accident occurred after May 1, 2021, your case will most likely be subject to additional limitations because of ICBC’s recently implemented “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage. Although this new insurance model should provide all injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions with no-fault accident benefits, ICBC has taken away injured accident victims’ rights to pursue compensation by engaging in legal action. The new system forces injured accident victims to rely on the judgment and procedural timelines of ICBC, imposing limited methods for appealing unfair decisions and limited means of accessing necessary care. To express your concern over these sweeping changes to the Crown corporation’s province-wide changes, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal ICBC’s “enhanced care” insurance model.

Even if your collision occurred after May 1, 2021, consider taking advantage of a free initial consultation with our bicycle accident lawyers serving Campbell River. By doing so, you will have the chance to receive personalized, case-specific feedback, and learn the various ways which our Campbell River bicycle accident lawyers may be able to provide you with assistance.
