What options for financial recovery do I have after a motorcycle accident?

There are two types of claims you may be able to file to recover damages and losses resulting from your motorcycle accident:

  • First-party ICBC claim– You have the option to file a no-fault claim with ICBC (often called a Part 7 claim) and recover basic Accident Benefits. You do not have to prove anyone else’s fault; you only have to demonstrate the extent of your injuries and need for compensation. These benefits are limited to $150,000 in medical benefits and $300/week in income loss benefits.
  • Third-party ICBC claim – If a driver caused your accident, you also have the right to file a claim against ICBC through the driver’s liability insurance. These types of cases are also referred to as negligence claims or personal injury lawsuits. To win your case, you will need to prove not only your injuries but also that the other party was at fault. These claims are a little more challenging, but you can obtain a more fulsome recovery than with a first-party claim.

Motorcycle accidents can cause life-changing injuries such as paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, multiple fractures, and major burns and scarring.

It is critical to secure adequate benefits not just for the time being, but for your future needs as well.

When you work with Preszler Injury Lawyers, we will seek to recover every dollar you’re entitled to under the law. Some of the losses we can help you recover include:

Do I need a Burnaby motorcycle accident lawyer?

Enlisting the help of a Burnaby motorcycle accident lawyer can greatly improve the likelihood of a successful claim. We can:

  • Conduct a thorough investigation of your accident to determine its cause and identify the responsible parties.
  • Interview eyewitnesses and seek consultations with experts to gather the evidence necessary to support your claim.
  • Work with your treating physicians to identify your current and future medical expenses relating to your accident injuries.
  • Handle all communications and negotiations with the other driver’s insurance company and lawyers.
  • Take whatever steps necessary to ensure you receive fair and full compensation.

If ICBC denies your claim or fails to offer you a fair settlement, we will be prepared to seek justice for you in court, though the vast majority of cases settle well before trial.
