Port Moody Motorcycle Accident Lawyers


Safely operating a motorcycle requires vigilance, skill, and a hyper-awareness of other road-users. Experienced motorcycle riders are often able to anticipate the actions of the drivers sharing the road with them, and take extreme caution to avoid collisions. 

Unfortunately, even the most cautious, safety-conscious motorcyclists could sustain various types of injuries in collisions caused by negligent motor vehicle operators. When drivers fail to uphold the duty of care they are required by law to provide other road-users, the victims of ensuing collisions could experience lifelong physical, psychological, and financial repercussions.

Almost all motorcycle accidents reported to the police in British Columbia over the last decade have resulted in injuries. In fact, in each of the last ten years, the lowest recorded motorcycle crash injury rate was 83.9%

Injured motorcycle accident survivors can face monumental challenges. Not only might their physical injuries require hospitalization, invasive surgeries, the purchase of medical equipment (including prosthetic limbs and mobility assistive devices), attendant care, and more, but their resulting psychological trauma could take years to address. 

Many victims of motorcycle accidents who have sustained physical injuries develop additional disabilities in the form of severe mental health conditions. These often include:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Insomnia
  • Other sleep disorders
  • Alcohol abuse disorder
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And more

Accident survivors suffering from debilitating mental health issues could require extensive psychological counseling in order to begin picking up the pieces of their lives. The cost of these services, in addition to other necessary, injury-related expenses, can begin accumulating rapidly. It is no wonder, then, that many injured motorcycle accident survivors find themselves in financial distress. 

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident before May 1, 2021, you may be entitled to pursue a civil claim against the negligent driver whose wrongful conduct behind the wheel led to your injurious collision. Our Port Moody motorcycle accident lawyers may be able to represent your best interests by pursuing legal action in an attempt to help you recover the maximum amount of damages to which you could be owed. 

ICBC, the province’s sole provider of basic auto insurance, recently introduced sweeping policy changes that could make it more difficult for injured motorcycle accident victims to recover the compensation they deserve. The provincially-owned Crown corporation has made it nearly impossible to appeal denied ICBC claims. They have also taken away accident victims’ rights to pursue civil action against the at-fault party whose negligence caused the collision to occur. If you wish to voice your concern over these unprecedented changes to ICBC’s policies, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal the “enhanced care” insurance model.
