Kamloops Bicycle Accident Lawyers


Bicycle accidents in Kamloops can have tragic, devastating consequences. Because of the negligence of motor vehicle operators, cyclists in Kamloops can lose their lives as the result of collisions. They can also sustain life-changing injuries that impact their physical, emotional, and financial well-being.

Depending on the types of injuries sustained, survivors of bicycle accidents in Kamloops might face numerous challenges. As a result of a complete stranger’s misconduct behind the wheel of their car, an injured cyclist could lose their abilities to continue earning a living, participating in the kind of activities that once gave them pleasure, and even living independently.

In addition to enduring physical pains and adjusting their lifestyles to accommodate their newly acquired disabilities, bicycle accident victims who have been catastrophically injured often develop debilitating mental health disorders. These typically include depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), among others.

Furthermore, injured bicycle accident survivors often incur significant financial losses. These may be related to:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses
  • Medical equipment
  • Mobility aids
  • Attendant care
  • Physiotherapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Other specialist costs
  • Prosthetics
  • Home modification costs
  • Housekeeping services
  • Reduced future earning capability
  • And more

In order to apply for compensation following an injury-causing bicycle accident, crash survivors must file an ICBC claim even if they themselves are not auto insurance policyholders. As of May 1, 2021, ICBC has implemented a so-called “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage which should provide no-fault accident benefits to all injured car crash survivors to alleviate their injury-related costs. However, ICBC no longer allows injured bicycle accident victims to pursue legal action against the at-fault driver, even if their collision was a result of their negligence, nor do they provide many options to appeal denied claims or unfairly low settlement amounts. To voice your concerns about this unfair new model of insurance coverage, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal ICBC’s “enhanced care” system.

If you were involved in a collision before May 1, 2021 and sustained compensable injuries as a result, our Kamloops bicycle accident lawyers may be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve. By filing a civil claim against the at-fault driver whose negligence caused you to be injured in a collision, our bicycle accident lawyers serving Kamloops may be able to help you recover damages that are both economic and non-economic in nature, depending on the severity your injuries and the impact they have had on your overall quality of life. To learn more, call 1-800-JUSTICE and schedule a free initial consultation with our Kamloops bicycle accident lawyers.
