Prince George Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Highways 97 and 16 intersect in Prince George, making it an ideal base for exploration by motorcycle. Bikers find beautiful scenery in the Ancient Forest, a little bit of history at the Huble Homestead Historic Site, and a string of excellent watering holes along the Northern BC Ale Trail.

While Prince George has much to offer the motorcyclist, the number of motorcycle-related deaths in B.C. ranges from 12 to 30 a year, with thousands of injuries – half of which are serious enough for hospitalization.

Speed and impairment are the leading cause of crashes, followed by environmental conditions. However, 14 percent of cases are attributed to another driver’s negligence. Whether you are looking to hold a motorist accountable or maximize your ICBC settlement amount, our personal injury law firm is ready to be your steadfast ally.

Get Help Proving Your Case

Whether you were involved in a multiple-vehicle collision or a single-bike accident, Preszler Law Firm aims to successfully prove the facts surrounding your case. We will take photographs of the accident scene, preserve vehicle evidence, secure police and medical reports, and interview eyewitnesses.

Once we build a solid case for full benefit compensation, we present it to the insurance company, along with a demand letter specifying the health and occupational problems you will likely face in the future. With over 55 years’ combined experience in handling personal injury claims, we know how to communicate your interests with great efficiency, and we won’t back down when we know we’re right.

How Much Are Motorcycle Accidents Worth?

There are two types of ICBC accident claims you may pursue after a motorcycle accident:

  • A No-Fault “Part 7 Benefits” Claim – Basic Autoplan will compensate you up to $150,000 in medical and rehabilitative costs even if you were the one who caused the accident. They will also provide up to $300 per week for wage loss replacement if you are too injured to work. ICBC insurance is designed to help accident victims pay their medical expenses, wage losses, homemaker benefits (up to $145/week), and funeral/death benefits (up to $2,500) for the worst cases. While this all sounds very straightforward, ICBC operates like a business trying to preserve its bottom line, and many British Columbians hire a personal injury lawyer to help them negotiate the full value of their claim.
  • A Tort Claim – If another motorist’s negligence was partially or fully to blame for the accident, you have a right to recover damages through the other driver’s insurance policy. You will need to prove misconduct or recklessness, as well as substantiate your injury claims, through the help of Prince George motorcycle accident lawyers. In addition to covering everything ICBC would ordinarily pay, you can also sue for repayment of all out-of-pocket expenses, all past and future wage losses, future medical treatment costs, and a limited amount of “pain and suffering,” capped at a maximum of $5,500.

Don’t Go It Alone

You do not have to accept the first ICBC settlement offer that comes your way. You can negotiate for a higher amount, file a tort claim, or bring your claim to court. Our motorcycle accident law firm is fully equipped with all the resources and personnel necessary to prove damages and argue for a higher payout.
