Prince George Bicycle Accidents


When eco-conscious commuters head out to work in the morning, when parents help their kids adjust their helmets and safety pads, or when the thousands of cyclists who bike through Prince George every day leave their homes to enjoy a leisurely ride, none of these people expect to end their day in a hospital. Unfortunately, cycling in Prince George can be extremely dangerous. Motorists in unsafe, negligent manners can put the very lives of innocent road-users at risk, and cyclists are among the most vulnerable. 

Even though all cyclists in Prince George are required to wear helmets, bike riders have limited protection from the hazards of the road. Whereas the occupants of passenger vehicles can rely on their cars’ built-in safety features, bicycle riders are almost entirely exposed to danger. In the event of a collision with a fast-moving motor vehicle, cyclists can be tragically killed or catastrophically injured. 

After being struck by a motor vehicle, all injured bicycle accident victims are required to report the incident and file an ICBC claim. ICBC is the provincially-owned Crown corporation that provides basic auto insurance to motorists in British Columbia. Since instituting sweeping new changes, ICBC has left many injured bicycle accident victims feeling abandoned.

ICBC’s new “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage came into effect on May 1, 2021. Under this new system, anyone injured in a motor vehicle collision can receive no-fault accident benefits, regardless of their degree of fault for causing the accident. However, the new system also puts many barriers in the way of injured crash victims pursuing timely treatment and fair compensation. Unfortunately, those who are most likely to be adversely affected by this new “enhanced care” model are the most vulnerable road-users, including bicycle accident survivors.

By implementing this new no-fault system, ICBC has stripped away accident victims’ rights to pursue civil claims against the at-fault driver whose negligence was responsible for the injury-causing collision. The Crown corporation has also made it more challenging for unfairly denied claimants and accident victims granted low settlement amounts to appeal the insurer’s decision. To express your outrage over this unfair new “enhanced care” system, contact your MLA.

If you were injured in a bicycle accident before May 1, 2021, you may still be eligible to pursue a civil claim.
