Nanaimo Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

When motorcyclists encounter negligent drivers on the road, the consequences can be fatal. According to the British Columbia Coroners Service, dozens of people are killed in local motorcycle accidents each year

Even more bikers sustain numerous types of injuries as the result of motorcycle accidents. Because of the traumatic nature of collisions involving motorcycles and the relative lack of protection bikers have against the dangers of the road, the injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents are often catastrophic in nature. 

While all motorcycle riders can appreciate the risks associated with operating a powerful, high-speed machine, no one anticipates that, one day, they will be seriously injured in a collision. Few people are prepared for the physical, emotional, and financial burdens associated with severe injuries. 

This is especially true for motorcycle accident survivors who have sustained catastrophic injuries. Because of the negligence of another driver, permanently injured motorcycle accident victims could lose their mobility, their future earning capabilities, and indeed, their abilities to carry out the regular activities of daily life without the assistance of an attendant or personal support worker. 

As a result of a complete stranger’s carelessness or recklessness behind the wheel of their car, an injured motorcycle accident survivor could face serious ramifications for the rest of their lives. However, thanks to recent changes to the ways in which ICBC accident benefits are awarded to injured collision survivors, it is now more difficult than ever for motorcycle accident victims to get the care and compensation they deserve. 

On May 1, 2021, ICBC switched to a no-fault system of auto insurance coverage. In the past, people who were injured in accidents caused by someone else’s negligence had the option to pursue legal action against the at-fault party in order to pursue compensation for damages they had incurred. But since implementing their so-called “enhanced care” insurance model, ICBC has taken away accident victims’ rights to do so (except in specific scenarios). The insurance company has also made it more difficult to appeal denied ICBC claims or contest unfairly low settlement amounts that do not sufficiently cover the total injury-related losses incurred. 

Both the victims of accidents in Nanaimo and their families feel abandoned and betrayed by ICBC’s no-fault insurance system. While the “enhanced care” model might save insurance policyholders some money off their monthly premiums, the most vulnerable road-users, like motorcyclists, end up facing even greater challenges and indignities. To express your concerns about the province’s new no-fault insurance system, contact your MLA.
