Skilled bicycle accident lawyers serving Chilliwack

Even cyclists who wear helmets, neon or reflective clothing, and use hand signals are vulnerable road users. There are dozens of scenarios where motorists don’t visually register bicyclists, are distracted, or fail to yield the right of way. Accidents between vehicles and bicyclists have the potential to result in debilitating injuries for cyclists, ranging from broken bones and internal bleeding to brain damage.

While negligent drivers are often to blame in bicycle vs. vehicle accidents, other parties may share liability. For example, if hazardous road conditions were a direct cause of the accident, the municipal agency may be held liable for poor maintenance. If a defective part caused the bicycle to malfunction and crash, the part’s manufacturer might be held responsible. No matter the circumstances of your accident, you can rest assured we will investigate the facts and uncover the truth.

Our Chilliwack personal injury lawyers leverage extensive experience handling all kinds of claims involving cyclists and motor vehicle accident accidents. And since we operate on a contingency fee basis, we can advance your claim without placing extra financial burdens on you.

Common causes of vehicle vs. bicycle accidents

A good bicycle accident law firm is in a position to investigate your case, call in expert witnesses as needed, and handle all communications with the insurance company on your behalf.

Our legal team is well-versed in bicycle-vehicle accidents involving the following scenarios:

  • Dooring – when a motorist opens their car door on a cyclist
  • Left-hand turn accidents – left-turning drivers fail to look for cyclists, and turn directly in their path
  • Lane change crashes – drivers fail to check mirrors or blind spots for cyclists crashing into them as they change lanes
  • Intersection bicycle accidents – these collisions are common when drivers are distracted, roll through a red light, fail to look before they turn, or fail to slow for yellow lights.
  • Drivers who fail to share the roadway and allow ample space for cyclists
