Determining Fault In Cycling Accident Claims
Determining fault in accidents involving cyclists has become increasingly complex. For example, if a car passes a cyclist on the left and they collide, who would be at fault? Was the cyclist far enough to the right or was the motor vehicle too close on the left?
With over 75 years of combined legal experience, the lawyers at McKechnie & Company know that the answers to these questions will determine your eligibility for compensation from ICBC. Our lawyers have assisted clients in Vancouver and throughout British Columbia assess fault in accidents, and identify compensation and rehabilitation benefits that can be pursued.
Realistic Outcomes for Your Claim
Inability to work, participation in physical therapy, and mental stress are just a few of the factors that can affect your day-to-day routine after a cycling accident. There are also medical expenses and possible long-term effects such as loss of income.
