Some of the most common types of bicycle accidents involve motorists who change lanes or open their door without a shoulder check.
These and other types of bicycle accidents can be complex cases since motorists are often quick to deny any responsibility for the collision.
Many cyclists who admit to riding on a sidewalk or through a stop sign are surprised to learn that, in many respects, the law does not distinguish between a bicycle and a motor vehicle. For this reason, ICBC is quick to place blame on an injured cyclist who fails to abide by the rules of the road.
However, regardless of who has the right of way, our courts place a heavy duty on motorists to take precaution and keep a proper lookout for cyclists.
Our first step is to secure all the evidence that helps determine whether the motorist was speeding, distracted or otherwise driving carelessly at the time of the collision.
