Cyclists are vulnerable to injury on the road by drivers who are inattentive or simply caught off guard by a bicyclist who appears in their path. Drivers may not stop, either deliberately or without realizing they have hit someone and caused a bike rider potentially serious physical injury. If you are a cyclist who has been hit by a driver, legal advice can make sure your rights to compensation are secured.
Michael Golden has for many years represented injury victims in Vancouver. Michael and our team of bicycle accident lawyers have the experience to analyze the details of your accident and work towards making an appropriate and successful claim on your behalf.
Getting ICBC Coverage
If your bicycle accident was caused by a hit-and-run driver, it is important to file a police report immediately. Your next call should be to a lawyer who can help determine the best course of action for getting compensation through ICBC. As a cyclist, your ICBC claim will require different steps depending on factors, including:
- Knowing the identity of the driver
- Whether you have a BC driver’s license
- Whether you live with a BC driver
