With the growing number of roadways shared by cyclists and motorists, the chances of collisions will continue to increase dramatically, especially in Metro Vancouver with the rapid rise in the number of bike lanes. If you find yourself in need of a personal injury claims lawyer in Vancouver as the result of a cycling injury, Paine Edmonds LLP is experienced in such matters. You can count on our injury claims lawyers to help you receive any legal compensation you may be entitled to in order to allow you to move forward with your recovery.

When a collision occurs between a cyclist and motorist, determining who is at fault in such cases is often very much in dispute. For example, if you are a cyclist and struck by a motorist while going through a crosswalk, determining who is at fault will depend on a number of factors and not simply limited to whether you were riding your bicycle or had dismounted it and walked it through the crosswalk (as required by the law in BC). Whether the motorist kept a proper lookout will be a key factor as well.

Receiving Compensation for a Cycling Injury Claim

The amount of compensation you receive is directly tied to the degree to which you are found at fault during a cycling injury claim. This means that the insurer of the motorist will almost always argue that you should share the fault for an accident. When the claim cannot be resolved to either party’s satisfaction, a Court ultimately has the last word. By hiring a personal injury lawyer at Paine Edmonds, you are guaranteed to be working with someone who understands the law on collisions between cyclists and cars.

When your injuries have resolved or improved as much as they can Paine Edmonds’ personal injury lawyers can offer an assessment of the compensation that you are most likely entitled to. Allow our lawyers to walk you through the process from the initial paperwork to the resolution of your claim.
