Bicycle Accident Law

Bicyclists have very little protection if they are struck by a car, truck or other motor vehicle. Even accidents involving slow-moving vehicles can result in very serious injuries or death. If you have been injured as a bicyclist you may have an ICBC injury claim.

ICBC Cycling Accident Claims

Generally, if you are injured in a bicycle accident in British Columbia, regardless of who is at fault, ICBC must provide accident benefits (called Part 7 Benefits) to cover medical and rehabilitation expenses up to a maximum of $150,000 or $300,000 for accidents occurring after January 1, 2018. These accident benefits can include expenses such as physiotherapy or chiropractor treatments, medications, home support services, and medical equipment. In addition, if you are unable to work as a result of your injuries, you may be entitled to wage loss benefits.

In making an ICBC Claim you may be entitled to an award for pain and suffering, special damages (out of pocket expenses), wage loss, cost of future care expenses, and future loss of earning capacity.

Consult a Vancouver ICBC Lawyer prior to dealing with ICBC to know all your rights. If liability (who is at fault) is an issue, a thorough investigation of the accident scene is necessary.
