Courtenay Bicycle Accident Lawyer
A personal injury law firm is a great resource to have in the days, weeks, and months following a bicycle accident involving a motor vehicle. We can refer you to the most respected medical care practitioners in the area for your particular injuries. We can investigate the accident scene, securing and preserving evidence, and tapping experts and conducting interviews to determine what happened. We act as a liaison with ICBC, handling all insurance claim communications, so you can focus on getting better. We’ll also put a stop to creditor calls, hassling you about past-due medical bills.
What To Do After A Bicycle Accident
We understand you are probably reading this long after your accident. In a perfect world, you would have gathered eyewitness contact information, jotted down your recollections of what happened as soon as possible before you forgot, and snapped photos of injuries, property damage, and the crime scene. If not, no fear – we can double back with an accident reconstructionist, check surveillance footage if available, and work with local law enforcement to find witnesses to come forward.
Other steps to strengthen your claim include:
- Keeping all doctor’s appointments and follow-ups.
- Writing a daily log of your physical and psychological symptoms.
- Maintaining medical bills, wage statements, and out-of-pocket receipts in one place.
- Avoiding signing any paperwork with ICBC until you have a lawyer look over it.

How Much Does A Bicycle Accident Lawyer Cost in British Columbia?
It may surprise you, but our Courtenay bicycle accident lawyers work on a contingency basis, meaning you don’t owe a single cent upfront for the firm’s advocacy. Your payment is contingent upon a successful resolution. So should a legal team secure compensation on your behalf, it is customary for a maximum of 40% of the total recovery to return to the firm for their efforts. If the case falls flat and you do not recover money, you pay nothing. Most personal injury claimants do win — and receive much more with a lawyer’s help than they would representing themselves — so it’s a win for both parties.
