What To Do After Motorcycle Crashes in B.C.

A free consultation with a Kelowna personal injury lawyer will help you determine the next best step. You may pursue No-Fault ICBC Part 7 Benefits, which pay up to $150,000 toward medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of housekeeping capacity. Or, if another party was at least partially to blame for causing the accident, you may file a tort claim to achieve uncapped reimbursement for medical bills, lost wages, miscellaneous out-of-pocket expenses, disability, or pain and suffering. Either way, we will serve as your advocates, so you can focus on recovery.

Why You Need A Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

We are a motorcycle accident law firm with extensive experience in this unique area of law. Many factors distinguish a motorcycle accident from another type of car accident, notably:

  • The unfair bias against motorcyclists – Motorcycle riders get unfairly stigmatized as “reckless.” Judges and jurors may be affected by unfair prejudices, which is why you will need a persuasive lawyer to defend your reputation in court.
  • More severe, long-lasting injuries – The open and exposed nature of motorcycle riding increases the risk of serious injury, hospitalization, and permanent disability. Without seatbelts, airbags, and crash-resistant bike frames, riders are vulnerable to broken bones, road rash, spinal injuries, head trauma, and internal damage. These injuries can be very expensive to treat. In fact, about half of all motorcycle accident victims end up hospitalized. Lawyers who deal with motorcycle accidents should not only be able to calculate what has been spent on treatment already, but they should have a team of experienced forensic economists trained to calculate fair compensation for future recovery and rehabilitation.
  • Insurer tactics – ICBC may try to deny compensation if you were not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. They may try to get you to sign a waiver, which trades a fair settlement for a fast settlement. Or they may dispatch their own team of medical experts to marginalize your injuries and reduce the amount of compensation.
