Vernon Bicycle Accident Lawyers


Bicycle accidents in Vernon can have devastating repercussions for injured victims and their loved ones. When negligent drivers violate the rules of the road, Vernon cyclists can be killed in tragic, preventable collisions.

A driver’s negligence can have far-reaching impacts. Because of a complete stranger’s failure to consider the safety of other road-users, the friends and relatives of a wrongfully deceased cyclist may feel the pain of their loss for the rest of their lives.

Cyclists who survive near-fatal collisions with a motor vehicle can sustain various types of injuries of varying degrees of severity. These injuries might require hospitalization, surgeries, lengthy periods of physical rehabilitation, costly medical expenses, and even drastic changes to a bicycle accident victim’s daily life. Some injured commonly sustained in Vernon bicycle accidents include:

  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Back injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Broken and/or fractured bones
  • Knee injuries
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Friction wounds
  • And more

Recovering from the injuries sustained in a collision caused by a negligent motor vehicle operator can be expensive. By working with our Vernon bicycle accident lawyers, cyclists who were injured in collisions that occurred before May 1, 2021 may be entitled to pursue compensation through legal means.

If the crash in which you sustained compensable injuries took place before May 1, 2021, our bicycle accident lawyers serving Vernon may be able to help you file a civil claim against the negligent driver whose wrongful actions led to your collision. By doing so, our Vernon bicycle accident lawyers may be able to help you recover the maximum amount of damages to which you could be entitled.

Unfortunately, the injured victims of bicycle accidents that happened after May 1, 2021 are no longer entitled to pursue civil action in an attempt to recover fair compensation from the driver responsible for their injury-causing crash. That is because ICBC has recently introduced a new “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage that robs injured accident victims of their right to pursue civil claims against the at-fault motorist whose negligence led to their collision. This new system also places barriers in the ways of injured cyclists whose ICBC claims for accident benefits have been denied by the Crown corporation, as well as injured bicycle accident victims who received unfairly low settlements from ICBC. To voice your concerns over this new “enhanced care” model, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal ICBC’s no-fault insurance system.
