Kamloops Motorcycle Accident Lawyers


When motorcycle riders encounter negligent drivers on the road, their very lives could be at stake. Drivers who fail to obey the rules of the road jeopardize the physical safety of all road-users they encounter, including motorcyclists.

Motorcycle riders are often portrayed in movies and on television as reckless thrillseekers who are tough-as-nails. However, they are, in fact, among the most vulnerable road-users. Due to the inherent risks associated with riding motorcycles, bikers are highly susceptible to fatal and near-fatal injuries resulting from accidents caused by negligent motorists.

All drivers in the province are required to obey the traffic laws prescribed within the Motor Vehicle Act. As such, anyone who operates a motor vehicle must do so in consideration of the safety of other road-users and with a reasonable degree of caution at all times. Failure to do so by engaging in wrongful actions (or inactions) could be considered negligence. 

Examples of driver negligence that often lead to injury-causing motorcycle accidents in Kamloops include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Other forms of distracted driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Speeding
  • Street racing/stunt driving
  • Changing lanes without signaling 
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • And more

Motorcyclists who were injured in accidents before May 1, 2021 might be entitled to pursue legal action against the driver responsible for causing their collision if the crash was the result of the at-fault driver’s negligence. By working with our Kamloops motorcycle accident lawyers, injured motorcycle riders could recover damages from the party responsible for causing their collisions.

ICBC has made it more difficult for accident survivors injured in collisions after May 1, 2021 to recover the compensation they deserve, Their new “enhanced care” system of no-fault insurance does not permit injured motorcycle accident survivors to pursue civil claims against the negligent driver whose misconduct caused their crash to occur (except in certain scenarios). Instead, injured motorcyclists must rely solely on ICBC accident benefits which rarely cover an accident survivor’s total injury-related losses. Additionally, ICBC has made it more difficult to appeal unfair decisions about settlement amounts or claim denials. If you are concerned about what this new, no-fault insurance system could mean for your future, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal the ICBC’s “enhanced care” insurance model.
