Surrey Bicycle Accidents


For people who have been injured in Surrey bicycle accidents, the road to recovery can be painful, emotional, and expensive. When negligent motor vehicle operators fail to consider the possible consequences of their wrongful actions behind the wheel, their thoughtlessness can greatly affect another person’s life as well as their livelihood.

In accordance with the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, drivers in British Columbia are required to operate their vehicles in a reasonably cautious manner in order to reduce the risk of injury-causing or fatal collisions with other road-users. If a driver’s misconduct on the road leads to a bicycle accident in Surrey, the cyclist who was struck could be killed on impact or sustain severe, life-changing injuries.

Depending on the types of injuries they have sustained, cyclists who have been struck by motor vehicles may no longer be able to perform their professional duties or continue working in the same capacity as they had been prior to their bicycle accident. Many injured bicycle accident survivors in Surrey incur economic losses because of lost wages, as well as a reduced future earning capability. They often lose out on opportunities for professional advancement in their chosen occupational fields because of their injuries’ preventative impact on their abilities to continue working.

Additionally, injured survivors of bicycle accidents in Surrey are often required to pay out-of-pocket for necessary, injury-related expenses. These can include:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Attendant care
  • Prescriptions
  • Prosthetics
  • Mobility devices
  • Housekeeping services
  • Mileage to and from medical appointments
  • Necessary home modifications
  • Psychological counseling
  • And more

By working with our Surrey bicycle accident lawyers, cyclists who were injured in collisions that occurred before May 1, 2021 may be able to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault driver whose negligence caused the crash. By doing so, our bicycle accident lawyers serving Surrey may be able to help injured cyclists get the compensation they are rightfully owed.

Unfortunately, Surrey residents who were injured in bicycle accidents after May 1, 2021 face additional challenges because of newly implemented changes to the ways in which ICBC compensates injured victims of motor vehicle collisions. Under the Crown corporation’s new “enhanced care” model of auto insurance coverage, anyone injured because of a car crash should be able to receive no-fault accident benefits. However, by instituting these changes, ICBC has taken away accident victims’ rights to pursue legal action against the party responsible for causing their crash and has made it more difficult for them to appeal denied claims or unfairly low settlement amounts. To express your concerns about this newly adopted “enhanced care” model, contact your MLA.
