West Kelowna Car Accident Lawyers


In accordance with the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, all drivers in British Columbia are legally required to exercise caution while operating their vehicles. By doing so, they can help reduce the risk of deadly car accidents. However, in West Kelowna, many drivers fail to fulfill the duty of care they are legally required to provide to other road-users, including:

  • Other drivers
  • The occupants of passenger vehicles
  • Cyclists
  • Motorcycle riders
  • Pedestrians
  • And more

When drivers violate the rules of the road, they put innocent, unsuspecting members of the local community at risk. In an instant, drivers who engage in wrongful actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other forms of negligence behind the wheel could tear families apart and destroy the futures of countless accident victims. By failing to consider the potentially harmful consequences of their misconduct, negligent drivers can permanently injure complete strangers, thereby diminishing their overall quality of life in perpetuity.

If you were injured in a motor vehicle collision caused by a negligent driver, you may be eligible to work with our West Kelowna car accident lawyers to pursue a civil claim against them if the incident occurred before May 1, 2021. Unfortunately, car accident victims who were injured in collisions after that date could find it difficult to recover the compensation they are rightfully owed.

That is because of recent changes imposed on all of the province’s insured drivers by ICBC. In a drastic overhaul to a supposedly “enhanced care” model of insurance, ICBC has taken rights away from injured accident victims. People who were injured in motor vehicle collisions after these changes came into effect on May 1, 2021, are not entitled to pursue legal action against the negligent driver whose wrongful conduct on the road led to their injury-causing accident. Instead, all injured parties– including, potentially, the at-fault driver– may be granted no-fault accident benefits from ICBC. However, if an injured car accident victim’s ICBC claim is denied, or if they are allotted an unfairly low settlement amount, the Crown corporation has made it nearly impossible to appeal the insurer’s determination. To voice your opinion about ICBC’s new “enhanced care” model and to ask for it to be repealed, contact your MLA.
