Burnaby Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle crashes have risen dramatically since 2017 across British Columbia, with fatalities increasing by more than 50% per year. The Preszler team of Burnaby motorcycle accident lawyers help injured riders and their families to recover damages from negligent parties. We respect the sense of freedom that riders get from their motorcycles, and we work tirelessly to get them the compensation they need to get back on their bikes as soon as possible after an accident.  

Hire a lawyer who understands the riding culture 

Injured riders will always have a better chance of recovering larger damages awards when they retain a compassionate personal injury lawyer who understands the challenges of motorcycle accident cases. Negligent motorists often try to shift the blame by arguing that motorcycles are inherently dangerous or that the rider was careless. Our lawyers can discern where the blame for the accident lies, and why the motorist is liable for the biker’s injuries.

Retain a Burnaby motorcycle accident lawyer with ICBC experience

You will likely need to deal with the Insurance Company of British Columbia (ICBC) after your motorcycle crash to recover any damages. An experienced Burnaby motorcycle accident lawyer can guide you through that process and can verify that you are receiving the maximum compensation that may be available– including coverage for your present as well as future medical expenses and lost wages. In most cases, you need to report your accident to the ICBC within 30 days to initiate your claim. Retain a lawyer as soon as you can after your accident to avoid missing this deadline.

Keep detailed records of your motorcycle accident and riding habits 

You will improve your opportunity to recover greater damages if you collect and maintain all information about your motorcycle accident, including:

  • photographs of the vehicles involved in the accident and the accident scene;
  • invoices for medical services and repairs to your bike;
  • contact information for any witnesses who saw the crash;
  • notes about weather and road conditions at the time of the accident;
  • maintenance records for your bike;
  • any records of motorcycle safety classes or other training that you might have participated in.
