The popularity of bicycling among the residents of British Columbia can be seen along the streets of the Greater Vancouver Area. However, bicycling can be dangerous. Each year in B.C., there are approximately 1,300 crashes involving cyclists.
When a motor vehicle or truck strikes your bicycle, injuries can be quite severe, including head or spinal trauma and fractured bones. Complex medical treatment is often necessary and the costs can be daunting. If you have been struck while riding your bicycle and your accident occurred because a driver failed to obey traffic laws, you may be eligible to file a claim against that driver, even if you were partly at fault. Money that you may recover includes compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation, past and future loss of income, pain and suffering, cost of future care, and other costs associated with your case.
