As avid bicyclists know, cars and trucks don’t always acknowledge your presence and sometimes cause serious accidents when they fail to recognize your rights. Drivers of vehicles on the road should stay alert, check mirrors often, and be on the lookout for motorcyclists, pedestrians and bicyclists. Helmets may protect a bicyclist from head injury during falls, but they don’t do much to protect a rider from the impact of a heavy automobile.
The Vancouver personal injury lawyers at Stephens and Holman represent injured bicyclists and the families of bicyclists who were killed after negligent drivers caused a collision. If a driver:
- Failed to check all mirrors
- Ignored stop signs or traffic lights
- Was speeding
- Was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Our lawyers will work hard to bring these facts to light and present your case with hard evidence of negligence.
Even if the actions of the bicyclist contributed to the accident, an injured victim may still be able to claim compensation. If your family is dealing with the loss of a loved one following a bicycle accident, talk to an experienced B.C. lawyer about bringing a wrongful death claim. Our lawyers will fight to get your family fair compensation for medical expenses, lost-income and other accident-related costs.
