Motorcycle accidents can cause some of the worst injuries. The increased exposure of motorcyclists increases their chances of sustaining head injuries, fractures, spinal injuries, road rash, and amputation. Since motorcycles are smaller than vehicles and harder to see, their operators and passengers are more prone to being involved in accidents. Insurance companies have a legal obligation to make some payments towards loss of income and rehabilitation during the course of the claim. An ICBC lawyer in Vancouver can make sure you get the payments you are entitled to during the course of your claim and full compensation at the end of your claim even in the face of the insurance companies’ denials.
Motorcycle accidents can occur for many reasons:
- Rear ending
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Vehicles turning left into traffic
- Dangerous road conditions
- Improper lane changes and the list goes on.
Even if the motorcycle rider is doing everything correctly they can still be hidden from a motorist’s view. This occurs for many reasons but essentially the motorcycle is small and can be obscured by the pillar of the car’s windshield or by any other obstacle on the road.
If you’ve been in an accident, the damages can be life-changing and result in huge medical bills. You’ll need compensation to recover. Most motorcycle accidents qualify to be covered by insurance. Why can you receive payment in these cases? If the road is wet or road conditions are severe, insurance companies can cover your accident. If you lost control of your motorcycle, you can still receive compensation for medical care, rehabilitation, income loss, attendant care, and other possible benefits.
