Kelowna Motorcycle Accident Lawyers


Actions have consequences. The wrongful actions of negligent motor vehicle operators could jeopardize the physical safety, mental wellbeing, and financial security of innocent, unsuspecting community members.

Motorcycle riders are some of the most vulnerable road-users. Owing largely to their lack of protection from the dangers of the road, in the event of a collision caused by a negligent driver, motorcyclists could lose their lives. In the blink of an eye, families can lose their loved ones in senseless, violent, and preventable collisions. According to the British Columbia Coroners Service, each year, dozens of motorcycle accidents throughout the province have fatal outcomes.

Those who manage to survive near-fatal motorcycle accidents in Kelowna often sustain various types of injuries, ranging in severity from moderate to catastrophic. The far-reaching consequences of even moderate injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents can negatively impact a crash survivor and their family members for weeks, months, and even years to come.

Many injured motorcycle accident victims find the challenging process of physical recovery to be isolating and demoralizing. On top of that, many survivors of motorcycle accidents in Kelowna find it impossible to return to work because of the injuries they have sustained. Unable to earn the wages to which they have become accustomed and faced with mounting injury-related medical bills, motorcycle accident survivors often experience legitimate financial worries. This economic insecurity combined with the lonely and difficult process of physical recovery can lead injured motorcycle accident survivors to develop numerous, debilitating mental health issues. These frequently include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Alcohol abuse disorder
  • Insomnia
  • Other sleep disorders
  • Mood swings
  • Low self-esteem
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Self-harm
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • And more

With the proper compensation, injured survivors of motorcycle accidents could offset the necessary costs of proper treatment, including physiotherapy, psychological counseling, and other essential costs related to their recovery. However, since implementing their new “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage, ICBC has made it more difficult than ever for injured accident survivors to get the compensation they desperately need. 

People who have been injured after these changes took effect on May 1, 2021 are no longer eligible to pursue civil claims against the negligent driver whose wrongful actions led to the injury-causing collision. Instead, under this new no-fault insurance system, injured accident victims must rely solely on lump sum payments of ICBC accident benefits. Furthermore, if their ICBC claims are denied outright or if the settlement amounts allocated to them do not sufficiently cover their total financial losses, it can now be extremely difficult to appeal the unfair determination made by the insurance company. If you are upset about what these changes to ICBC’s insurance model mean for your claim, contact your MLA.

If your accident occurred before May 1, 2021, our Kelowna motorcycle accident lawyers may be able to help you sue the negligent driver responsible for your crash. To learn more about options that might be open to you, contact us today.
