If I was hit while on a motorcycle, do I have special rights that are separate from those of automobile drivers and passengers?

Although the basic theory behind the rights is essentially the same, motorcyclists are far more vulnerable on the road and subject to special consideration. Your B.C. motorcycle accident lawyer will discuss any factors affecting your rights during your free consultation.

Why do motorcycle accident cases require specialized lawyer experience?

Accidents involving motorcyclists often involve severe injuries and fatalities. Negligent drivers may try to put the blame on the vulnerable motorcyclist or claim that he or she was riding recklessly. A Surrey motorcycle accident lawyer with expertise in this area is best able to deliver the legal guidance you need to recover compensation from ICBC.

Can a motorcyclist be denied accident benefits because a motorcycle is inherently dangerous?

No. Although a motorcycle puts riders in a more vulnerable position than automobiles, they have just as much right to be on the road as anyone else. Cars and trucks tend to ignore the presence of motorcycles, and when injury results, this carelessness should be examined and responsibility placed where it belongs.

What if a loved one was killed in a motorcycle accident?

Your family may be able to claim damages for the loss of financial support your loved one provided and would have continued to provide. Please visit our Wrongful Death page for more information.
