BICYCLE ACCIDENTS

Vancouver is one of the most bike-friendly cities in Canada, and maybe even the world. Much of the city is accessible by bike and many commuters choose biking as their primary method of transportation. As a result, there are many accidents involving bicyclists. Often, these accidents occur at intersections in bike lanes, or when the door of a vehicle is opened and a cyclist gets struck as they are moving towards it. Accidents of this nature can cause a multitude of injuries, some of which may not show symptoms until weeks or months after the accident.

If you are a cyclist involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, obtain as much information as possible about the driver, witnesses and the accident scene. Take lots of photographs and make sure you understand the Bloom Law “ACCIDENT CHECKLIST” to help make sure you know what to do in the event you are involved in an accident, and don’t miss or forget a step that could adversely affect your position and personal injury claim.

Once you have left the scene consult a medical professional, and a Bloom Law personal injury lawyer right away. Your doctor will assist with your recovery, and your lawyer will make sure that you are appropriately compensated for the accident.

At Bloom Law, we will ensure that ICBC does not short change your claim and you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
