Motorcycle accidents BC
In 2018, there were 51 motorcycle accident deaths in British Columbia – higher than any other year over the previous decade. Many more were severely injured.
Sadly, this is the reality of motorcycle accidents. The exposed nature of motorbike riders and their passengers, and the speeds at which they can travel, make them extremely vulnerable road users. Any accidents are likely to have catastrophic, if not fatal, consequences.
Motorcycle accident claims
Anyone who is injured in a motor vehicle accident through no fault of their own is entitled to compensation, including motorcyclists.
Motorcycle accident claims are likely to attract high compensation awards. This is often because the person making the claim (called the ‘plaintiff’) requires ongoing medical and rehabilitation support. There may also be a significant loss of earnings claim.
Our recent motorcycle accident claims
By way of example, we obtained $900,000 compensation for a motorcyclist who was struck by a left-turning vehicle. He was forced to find alternative employment because of his ankle injuries.
In another case, we represented a motorcyclist who sustained multiple fractures. He has been unable to return to work, has permanent scarring and reduced physical function. He received $1,270,000 compensation.
Motorcycle accident compensation
In both of these cases, the compensation awarded to our clients was a lifeline. Their ability to work had been affected, and they needed ongoing medical treatment for their injuries.
If you’re involved in a serious motorcycle accident, you might also need to claim for other financial losses, such as the loss of future earnings, the cost of care, and the cost of specialist equipment or adaptations around the home.
