Vernon Motorcycle Accident Lawyers


Because of recently implemented changes to the ways in which ICBC accident benefits are allocated to injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions, it is now more difficult than ever for motorcycle accident victims to receive the necessary care and compensation they deserve. The provincially-owned Crown corporation claims to have introduced its new “enhanced care” model of insurance company to help policyholders cut the costs of their monthly premiums. However, by doing so, they have taken away rights from vulnerable road-users – including motorcyclists who have been injured by negligent drivers.

Under ICBC’s highly criticized no-fault insurance system, anyone injured in a motor vehicle collision is entitled to accident benefits, regardless of which party was responsible for causing the crash. Certain injured accident survivors are entitled to lump sum payments to help them offset the costs arising from their newly acquired medical conditions. However, under this new system, injured accident survivors are not entitled to sue the at-fault party whose negligence caused the collision in which they were injured. That means, if a negligent driver causes an accident in which a motorcyclist sustains life-threatening injuries, the injured party has no recourse to pursue justice, accountability, and fair compensation through legal means (except in specific circumstances). 

Additionally, if an injured motorcycle accident survivor’s ICBC claim is unfairly denied, or if the settlement amount they are awarded is so low that it does not begin to cover their total injury-related losses, the Crown corporation has made it more difficult than ever to appeal their decision. Instead, injured survivors of traumatic, life-changing experiences must find a way to make do with the accident benefits they have been granted. 

ICBC’s so-called “enhanced care” model of insurance took effect on May 1, 2021. Already, injured accident survivors are calling the no-fault insurance system an “absolute nightmare.” Unfortunately, the road-users who are most vulnerable to the dangers of the road have the most to lose. For injured motorcycle accident victims and their families, ICBC’s new policies could lead to financial insecurity and years of suffering. If you are concerned about what these sweeping new changes could mean for countless accident survivors across the province, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal ICBC’ “enhanced care” insurance model.
