What to expect following a Coquitlam motorcycle accident
In severe motorcycle accidents, your first concern should be getting the medical attention you need. These crashes often result in a trip to the emergency room. Your health should be your priority; everything else can wait until your condition is stable.
In the weeks following the crash, you could begin to worry about the financial impact this has had on you. In addition to the medical treatments, you may also face the financial consequences of missing work. When you are ready, it is time to file a benefits claim with the ICBC.
To ensure the claims process goes smoothly, it is important to speak to our team of Coquitlam motorcycle accident lawyers right away. As time goes by, it can become more challenging to move forward with an injury claim.
Establishing fault in a motorcycle crash
Countless factors could lead to a motorcycle crash. In some cases, a wreck could be entirely your fault. In others, a negligent motorist could collide with you. When another driver is responsible, our experienced lawyers can help you identify the responsible party and hold them accountable.
