Abbotsford Motorcycle Accident Lawyers


Riding a motorcycle can be one of life’s most exhilarating and adventurous activities. Few experiences can match the thrill and excitement of hitting the open road on the back of a motorcycle, exploring local vistas, and enjoying the rush of adrenaline that comes with operating a powerful, high-speed machine.

Unfortunately, riding a motorcycle in and around Abbotsford can be extremely dangerous. When motorcycle riders encounter trucks and other large passenger vehicles operated by negligent drivers, the results can be fatal.

In British Columbia, the majority of police-reported motorcycle accidents resulted in at least one injury. Indeed, over the last decade, the lowest recorded motorcycle crash injury rate was 83.9%.

Motorcycle accident survivors can sustain many types of injuries because of another driver’s negligence. Unfortunately, because of how exposed motorcyclists are to the dangers of the road, the injuries they sustain in collisions are often permanent, life-changing, and catastrophic.

Sustaining severe injuries in a motorcycle accident can impact every aspect of a person’s life. Many injured motorcycle accident survivors struggle physically and mentally. The challenging, lonely recovery process combined with the economic pressures typically associated with injury-causing accidents often cause injured survivors of motorcycle collisions to develop disabling mental health issues. After surviving a motorcycle accident in Abbotsford, injured victims often develop:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia 
  • Other sleep disorders
  • Alcohol abuse disorder
  • Mood swings
  • And more

On top of the physical and psychological difficulties faced by injured motorcycle accident survivors, many victims of traumatic collisions are required to tackle substantial financial challenges. However, because of new changes to the way ICBC accident benefits are provided to the victims of all motor vehicle crashes in the province, motorcyclists who were injured after May 1, 2021 may have a harder time getting the coverage and compensation they need.

Since the introduction of ICBC’s “enhanced care” model of auto insurance coverage, victims of motor vehicle collisions have lost their ability to sue the negligent parties responsible for their injury-causing crashes. Instead, anyone injured in a crash is only entitled to no-fault accident benefits. Pursuing additional compensation by taking legal action is no longer an option for the victims of another driver’s negligence (except in certain circumstances). Additionally, if an injured motorcyclist’s ICBC claim is denied or if their settlement amount is unfairly low, it is now more difficult than ever to appeal the insurer’s wrongful determination. If you are concerned about what this new “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage means for you and your loved ones struggling to recover in the wake of a traumatic and traumatizing collision, contact your MLA.

If your collision occurred before May 1, 2021, our Abbotsford motorcycle accident lawyers may still be able to help you take legal action. By pursuing a civil claim against the negligent driver whose wrongful conduct on the road led to your injury-causing crash, our motorcycle accident lawyers serving Abbotsford may be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
