Home to Canada’s largest municipal bike park, Kamloops offers miles of scenic trails for avid cyclists. Whether done for exercise, pleasure, or an eco-friendly mode of transport, bicycling is a major part of the local community. And while cycling has myriad benefits for both rider and the environment, it is not without risks and dangers.
Proudly Representing Kamloops Residents
Besides a helmet and clothing, cyclists have very little in the way of protection in the event of a collision with a motor vehicle. Even low-speed accidents can result in devastating injuries, ranging from compound bone fractures and deep lacerations to dental fractures and paralysis. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident and need effective advocacy from an experienced personal injury law firm, call Prezsler Law for a free initial consultation.
Depending on the nature of your accident, you may be hospitalized, unable to work for long periods, or facing the daunting prospect of permanent disability.

Reach out to a Preszler personal injury lawyer to discuss your rights and the best strategy moving forward.
