MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

When it comes to motorcycle accidents British Columbia, ICBC records indicate an average of more than 2,000 motorcycle accidents within the recent years. These include over 30 fatalities and approximately 1,500 injury victims with half of the aforementioned incidents requiring hospitalization.

The statistics indicate that victims of motorcycle accidents frequently sustain severe and sometimes life altering injuries due to the inherent lack of protection offered by motorcycles when compared to other types of vehicles on the roads of our province.

The injuries sustained by these riders can range from road rash, multiple fractures, ligament and tendon tears, injuries of the brain and spinal cord, as well as para or quadriplegia and amputations.

Despite the great improvements to rider safety, such as better helmets, protective clothing made with Kevlar, the consequences suffered by the motorcycle rider are far more severe than those of someone driving an automobile.

The most common cause of motorcycle accidents is lack of driver awareness. Drivers of cars and trucks may fail to check their rear-view mirrors or blind spots before changing lanes and do so unaware of the presence of a motorcycle.

Motorcycle accidents can happen for a number of reasons such as: adverse weather condition, failure to obey traffic rules. distracted driving, driving under the influence, etc. However, the primary contributing factor is that more often than not, the motorist is found to be at-fault for the accident.

Even if you were involved in a single vehicle motorcycle accident and have a valid Autoplan, you are still entitled to receive compensation for your injuries.

Regardless of who was at fault in the accident, your Basic Autoplan coverage entitles you so certain medical benefits as well assistance with wage loss through Part 7 Accident Benefits. Medical and rehabilitation costs will be covered up to $150,000.00. Furthermore, damage to your vehicle may also be covered under your policy’s the Collision coverage.

When the pain and stress of the injuries sustained in the accident are compounded by the complicated, confusing and intimidating process of filing a personal injury claim in British Columbia, people tend to get overwhelmed which further delays their access to much needed medical treatment and rehabilitation.

The difference between knowing and not knowing your rights can mean having immediate access to treatment or being buried under confusing paperwork thus delaying your recovery and return to your pre-accident activities. An experienced personal injury lawyer can successfully navigate the system and represent you against the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) in order to investigate the facts, get to the truth and ensure that you receive maximum compensation for your injuries.
