West Kelowna Motorcycle Accident Lawyers


Motorcycle riders are among the most vulnerable road-users. Because of the wrongful actions of negligent commercial or passenger vehicle operators, serious motorcycle crashes in West Kelowna can lead to the loss of life. 

According to the British Columbia Coroners Service, each year, dozens of motorcycle accident victims succumb to their injuries. Because of a driver’s failure to consider the potentially fatal consequences of their wrongful actions, innocent lives can be terminated in the blink of an eye.

Motorcycle riders are often depicted in films and on television as being reckless, thrill-seeking, outlaws who laugh in the face of authority. This unfair stereotype could not be farther from the truth. Indeed, most motorcycle riders appreciate the inherent risks associated with their preferred method of transportation. Because of their relative lack of protection against the dangers of the road, motorcycle riders can appreciate the importance of constant vigilance.

Unfortunately, even the most safety-minded motorcycle rider could be killed in a collision caused by a negligent driver. Those who survive serious motorcycle accidents in West Kelowna often sustain different types of injuries, ranging in severity from moderate to catastrophic. These injuries frequently include:

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

If you recently sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident, it might be already apparent how expensive the process of recovery can be. Many injured motorcycle accident survivors struggle to afford the costs of necessary medical care, especially if their injuries make it impossible for them to continue working. 

If you were injured in a crash before May 1, 2021, our West Kelowna motorcycle accident lawyers may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve by pursuing a civil claim against the at-fault driver whose negligence behind the wheel caused your collision to occur. Unfortunately, the province’s sole provider of basic auto insurance has recently introduced new, widely criticized changes to the ways in which ICBC accident benefits are paid out to injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions. These changes took effect on May 1, 2021, and make it more difficult for accident victims injured after that date to recover the compensation they should be rightfully owed. 

After switching to a no-fault system of insurance coverage, ICBC stripped away accident victims’ rights to pursue damages through legal action. Under their new, so-called “enhanced care” insurance model, survivors of motorcycle accidents can no longer sue the at-fault driver whose failure to uphold their duty of care resulted in an injury-causing collision. Furthermore, if an accident victim’s ICBC claim is unfairly denied, it is now more difficult to appeal the insurer’s wrongful determination. 

Injured accident victims throughout the province feel abandoned, betrayed, and completely helpless to fight against ICBC’s drastic new insurance model. If you would like to express your concerns about what this “enhanced care” system could mean for you and your family’s financial recovery after an injury-causing accident, contact your MLA.
