This area includes motor vehicle accidents, including pedestrian, motorcycle and bicycle accidents. Accidents occur when vehicle drivers do not see the other party and either turn directly into its path or collide with it. Sometimes a person can react quickly enough to avoid a serious accident, but on other occasions that might not be possible due to other factors, such as weather conditions, potholes, gravel on the road or slick surfaces. Remember that drivers, motorcyclists and cyclists have statutory rights and obligations under the Motor Vehicle Act and you may not be as familiar with those rights as you should be, especially when you’ve just been in an accident, but we can help you.
If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident and have a claim involving ICBC, or an out of province insurance company, you should see a lawyer immediately. You should get legal advice before discussing your claim with an ICBC adjuster and before signing any documents. Your rights and obligations will vary depending upon whether you are a driver, a passenger, a pedestrian or a cyclist. Immediate advice could affect the amount of your monetary claim. Our staff and lawyers are experienced in handling these issues and will be happy to take the pressure off of you, so that you can start to heal and feel better.
We offer free consultations and work on a contingency fee basis for personal injury matters, which means that we’re paid when you collect.
