Motorcyclists enjoy the same rights as other motorists using roadways and highways throughout Metro Vancouver and they must follow the same "rules of the road." However, motorcyclists are much more vulnerable on the road and sometimes motorists fail to see them or misjudge the speed they are travelling at. When a crash occurs with a motor vehicle, the motorcyclist often suffers significant and severe injuries as a result. When an accident occurs between a motorcyclist and motorist, determining who is at fault in such cases is often very much in dispute.

Getting the Compensation You Deserve

Determining the compensation you are entitled to is heavily influenced by the degree to which you are found at fault in the motorcycle accident. However, the insurer of the motorist may try to argue that you should share fault in the accident in order to reduce the amount their client has to pay. If this dispute cannot be resolved by you and the motorist’s insurance company, the Court steps in with the final say on who is at fault. At Paine Edmonds, we understand the law on collisions between motorcyclists and vehicles. Our personal injury lawyers can advise you on whether or not you really are at risk for being found at fault.

When you have recovered from your injuries, our personal injury lawyers can offer you an assessment of the compensation you are entitled to. We walk you through the whole process, so you understand the kind of results you deserve.
