Vancouver Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Statistics show the dismaying truth that there are 2,200 motorcycle crashes in British Columbia each year, causing 1,500 annual injuries, half of which require hospitalization. If you have been seriously hurt in a motorcycle accident, it is important to uncover liability issues and demonstrate who was at fault to ensure that you receive just compensation to care for yourself in the days, weeks, and months to come.

Since 1959, our personal injury law firm has represented motorcycle accident victims with compassion and dedication to achieving a just outcome. We retain a network of experts, including accident reconstructionists and private investigators, in addition to working with local law enforcement to prove what happened in the moments before the crash.

Do You Need a Motorcycle Accident Law Firm?

There are many scenarios where the assistance of a motorcycle accident lawyer can help you recover fair and full compensation:

  • Another driver was at fault. If you suspect the driver of another vehicle was acting negligently — speeding, tailgating, failing to exercise caution, texting while driving, or driving under the influence, the motorist may be responsible for covering the cost of your rehabilitation if liability can be proven. We have all the investigative resources you need.
  • You were involved in a single motorcycle crash. Riders carrying the Basic Autoplan are entitled to no-fault Part 7 Benefits that cover your injuries, even if you caused the accident. However, ICBC may look for reasons to avoid paying full compensation for your injuries. For instance, if you were not wearing a helmet at the time, ICBC may attempt to reduce your settlement from the $150,000 in medical and rehabilitation costs and $300 per week of income replacement benefits allowed.
  • Your accident occurred in a location where many accidents occur. Lawsuits can place pressure on government officials to act, particularly if a number of motorcyclists have been seriously injured or killed in a particular stretch of roadway. Our team of investigative experts will leave no stone unturned.
  • You lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash. Nothing can erase the pain of loss, but obtaining answers is the first step toward closure and healing after the death of a loved one. A spouse and dependents may be entitled to collect wrongful death compensation for loss of companionship, financial support, guidance, household services, funeral, and burial costs.
