Motorcycling is a popular recreational activity and mode of transportation for thousands of residents living in the Greater Vancouver area. Motorcycle accidents are often caused by someone other than the cyclist. The comparatively small size of motorcycles means other motorists may not see them, especially where the vision of other motorists may be obscured.
Motorcycles provide little protection and the end result of a collision between a motorcycle and a car can be devastating, resulting in the motorcyclist suffering severe injuries.
If you have been struck while riding your motorcycle 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 you may recover in a motorcycle accident claim 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.
