Richmond Motorcycle Accident Lawyers


Operating a motorcycle can be dangerous. In the event of a collision with a larger passenger vehicle, motorcycle riders have little physical protection. Indeed, aside from wearable safety gear, they are virtually unprotected from the dangers of the road. As a result, motorcycle accidents in Richmond often end in fatalities.

When a driver’s wrongful actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other forms of negligence cause a collision involving a motorcyclist, the at-fault driver could manage to survive the accident with no injuries at all. However, because of the inherent vulnerability involved in riding a motorcycle, the accident victim could sustain several types of injuries of varying degrees of severity. These include:

  • Whiplash
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Internal organ damage
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Fractured bones
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Traumatic amputations
  • Sensory losses
  • Friction wounds (i.e., road rash)
  • And more

Recovering from any physical injury can be a long, arduous, and expensive process. Many injured motorcycle accident survivors rely on the support they receive in the form of ICBC accident benefits to offset their essential injury-related costs. Unfortunately, because of recent changes to ICBC’s auto insurance policy, recovering fair settlement amounts is now more difficult than ever.

ICBC’s new no-fault insurance system provides lump sum payments to certain injured accident victims. However, it also takes away their rights to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault driver whose wrongful actions caused the collision to occur. That means, if a negligent driver’s misconduct caused your injurious motorcycle accident after ICBC implemented their “enhanced care” insurance model on May 1, 2021, you will likely be unable to sue the at-fault driver for damages. 

On top of that, the settlement amounts awarded to injured motorcycle accident victims by the Crown insurance company are often far too low to fully replace the income losses they have incurred or will incur in the future. Unfortunately, the sole provider of basic auto insurance in the province of British Columbia has made it more difficult to appeal unfair decisions about settlement amounts or to contest unfairly denied ICBC claims

Since taking effect in May 2021, injured accident victims across the province have already experienced the “absolute nightmare” of ICBC’s no-fault insurance system. Vulnerable road-users, including motorcycle riders, feel abandoned by the provincially-owned insurance company who appear to be prioritizing cost-saving over the physical and financial well-being of injured accident victims. To express your concerns about ICBC’s “enhanced care” model, contact your MLA.

If the motorcycle accident in which you were injured occurred before May 1, 2021, you may still be eligible to pursue a civil claim against the responsible driver.
