Prince George Car Accident Lawyers


Distracted, inebriated, reckless, careless, and otherwise negligent drivers can cause serious car accidents with severe consequences. Motor vehicle collisions in Prince George can be fatal. They can also cause all parties involved to sustain permanent, even catastrophic injuries.

According to the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, drivers throughout British Columbia are required to operate their vehicles with a reasonable level of caution and in a manner that takes the safety of other road-users into consideration. By violating the rules of the road, negligent drivers fail to uphold the duty of care they are legally required to provide other drivers and their passengers, as well as motorcycle riders, cyclists, and pedestrians.

Examples of driver negligence that frequently lead to fatal or injury-causing car accidents in Prince George include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Exceeding the speed limit
  • Changing lanes improperly
  • Ignoring traffic signs and/or signals
  • Stunt driving and street racing
  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • And more

If you sustained compensable injuries in a collision caused by someone else’s negligence before May 1, 2021, our Prince George car accident lawyers may be able to provide you with crucial assistance in your pursuit of justice and restitution. Our car accident lawyers serving Prince George may be able to file a civil claim against the negligent driver whose misconduct on the road led to the collision in which you were injured. By doing so, you might be able to recover the maximum amount of damages rightfully owed to you.

Since changes to ICBC’s auto insurance coverage took effect on May 1, 2021, car accident victims who sustained injuries after that date have fewer options for recovering compensation. ICBC has switched to an “enhanced care” model, providing no-fault accident benefits to anyone injured in a car accident, even if their own actions were responsible for causing the crash. The newly implemented policies also take rights away from injured car accident survivors. People who were injured in motor vehicle collisions after May 1, 2021 no longer have the right to sue the negligent, at-fault motorist. Furthermore, their abilities to appeal a denied ICBC claim for accident benefits have been curtailed. To complain about these unfair changes to the Crown corporation’s insurance policies, contact your MLA.

Our Prince George car accident lawyers provide a free initial consultation to all prospective clients. Even if your collision occurred after ICBC’s “enhanced care” model was implemented, a cost-free, initial consultation with our car accident lawyers serving Prince George could be beneficial to you. To learn about options for financial recovery that might be available to you, contact our Prince George car accident lawyers online or call 1-800-JUSTICE.
