Nanaimo Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycles are a popular form of travel on the roads and highways near Nanaimo. However, there is no doubt that they offer far less protection from injury compared to cars. Motorcycle wrecks regularly lead to severe injuries due to the lack of seatbelts, airbags, or impaction cushioning. According to the ICBC, close to 70 percent of all motorcycle accidents result in severe injury. If this has happened to you, our Preszler team of Nanaimo motorcycle accident lawyers could help you recover monetary compensation.

If you are ready to seek justice, a personal injury lawyer from Preszler Law could help guide you through the litigation process. We look forward to discussing your claim during a free, no obligation consultation.

The right to sue the responsible driver

If another person’s negligence is responsible for your motorcycle accident, you could have a viable claim for damages. However, to recover compensation you will have to demonstrate that the other driver was negligent. Some common examples include:

  • Distracted driving due to texting, infotainment systems, or passengers
  • Following too closely
  • Driving at unsafe speeds
  • Failing to yield to other traffic
  • Fatigued driving
  • Intoxicated driving

Shared fault in a Nanaimo motorcycle crash lawsuit

It goes without saying that you could recover compensation when another person causes your motorcycle accident. But what about when you are partially at fault? According to the British Columbia Negligence Act, you still have the ability to recover compensation even if you are partially at fault. However, your award will be reduced by the degree at which you are responsible for the crash.

Consider the following example. A motorcycle rider is speeding, when a motorist runs a stop sign and collides with the bike. An investigation determines that the bike rider is 25 percent responsible for the crash, and the motorist is 75 percent responsible. If the motorcycle rider’s damages were $100,000, their award would be $75,000.

Establishing fault and demonstrating the plaintiff’s damages are the primary role of our team of Nanaimo motorcycle accident lawyers. We rely on a comprehensive approach to proving fault. We use accident reconstruction specialists and experienced investigators to get to the bottom of your collision.
