Penticton Motorcycle Accident Lawyers


The negligence of other drivers can lead to serious, life-threatening collisions. As the result of drivers’ failure to exercise a reasonable degree of caution, vulnerable road-users like motorcyclists from Penticton can be killed in collisions that should never have happened in the first place. 

In accordance with the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, drivers have a legal obligation to fulfill a duty of care to other road-users, including motorcycle riders. Unfortunately, many motor vehicle operators fail to uphold this duty of care by engaging in some form of misconduct behind the wheel. If a driver’s wrongful actions cause a motorcycle accident to occur, they could be considered negligent. 

Common examples of driver negligence that frequently lead to injurious or fatal motorcycle accidents in Penticton include:

  • Speeding
  • Street racing / stunt driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Improperly changing lanes
  • Ignoring traffic signs and/or signals
  • And more

If a negligent driver caused you to sustain injuries in a motorcycle accident before May 1, 2021, you might be entitled to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault motorist. By working with our Penticton motorcycle accident lawyers, you may be able to recover the maximum amount of damages owed to you.

If your injury-causing motorcycle accident took place after May 1, 2021, you will likely face more challenges in your pursuit of fair compensation because of systemic changes to the way ICBC provides accident benefits to injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions. By introducing a no-fault insurance system, ICBC has removed accident victims’ rights to pursue civil action against the parties responsible for their injury-causing crashes (except in specific circumstances). Furthermore, they have made it more difficult than ever to appeal unfairly denied ICBC claims. This can be particularly challenging for motorcycle accident survivors who often sustain severe injuries that require expensive treatments, medical expenses, and lifestyle adjustments. Although they might be offered lump sum payments through ICBC’s new “enhanced care” insurance model, these payments are rarely sufficient to cover an injured motorcylcist’s total economic losses. If you are worried about what these changes could mean for your claim and your family’s financial future, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal ICBC’s no-fault insurance system.
