Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Experience representing cyclists
If you’re a bicyclist, you know how extremely vulnerable you can be if you’re hit by a negligent driver. You might be riding across an intersection or making a left turn.
Even the slightest impact by a car can result in the most serious – if not life threatening – injuries.
At Simpson Thomas, our personal injury lawyers have had years of experience representing bicyclists who’ve been injured in traffic accidents.
We know the typical defences often used by negligent drivers: that they didn’t see the cyclist, that the cyclist veered into traffic "out of nowhere", that the cyclist was in their blind spot.
We’ve heard them all and after years of trying bicycle accident cases, we have the experience to counter those claims.
Holding negligent parties accountable
We’re here to ensure that the negligent parties are held accountable. We’ll work closely with you to ensure that all the evidence needed for your case is collected and we do our best to obtain the settlement that you deserve.
If you’re dealing directly with ICBC, you may sometimes feel that your side of the story is not being represented or heard. If that’s how you feel, you’ll want to work with Vancouver bicycle accident lawyers who are on your side.
Over the years, we’ve helped win insurance settlements, arbitration awards and trial verdicts in favour of our clients.
Assessing your damages
We can advise you on all the issues relating to your bicycle accident claim including your medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and lost income. You’ll want to work with an expert who can help you quantify those amounts, advise you about the law, and can put forward the best possible case on your behalf.
At Simpson Thomas, we're on your side.
