Burnaby Car Accidents


Drivers have responsibilities to other motorists, their passengers, cyclists, pedestrians, and other road-users. In accordance with the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, drivers are required to operate their vehicles in a reasonably cautious manner and obey the rules of the road at all times. By behaving responsibly and lawfully behind the wheel, conscientious motor vehicle operators help reduce the risk of serious collisions with serious outcomes.

Unfortunately, drivers do not always comply with local traffic laws. When a motorist fails to fulfill the duty of care they are legally obligated to provide to other road-users, deadly crashes can occur.

According to recent data, Burnaby is home to three of the Lower Mainland’s most dangerous intersections. A combined 453 car accidents – including fatal collisions– occurred over the course of just one year at these locations alone. Hundreds of local community members sustain injuries as a result of collisions caused by other drivers’ negligence. Many of these injured car accident survivors require lengthy periods of hospitalization, long-term physiotherapy, invasive surgeries, and potentially drastic changes to their overall lifestyles, and all because of a stranger’s complete disregard for the safety of others.

Before May 1, 2021, injured car accident survivors in the province had the basic right to pursue fair compensation from the at-fault driver whose failure to uphold their duty of care to other road-users resulted in the injury-causing collision. However, ICBC has imposed a new “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage on all drivers throughout the province. In doing so, the Crown corporation has taken away injured car accident victims’ rights to seek out the compensation they are rightfully owed through legal means.

As it stands, anyone who was injured in a motor vehicle collision after May 1, 2021– even crashes caused by another driver’s negligence– must make do with whatever amount of accident benefits they are allotted by ICBC (if any), with limited options for contesting or appealing the insurance provider’s decision. To voice your concerns about the potentially devastating repercussions of these newly imposed changes for countless car accident victims and their families throughout British Columbia, contact your MLA.
