However, not all bicycle accidents involve a collision with a car: They can be collisions with other vehicles, such as cyclists, or encounters with road hazards. To complicate matters, many bicycle accidents in Vancouver are hit-and-run accidents where the driver fails to stop.

Be aware that while you are riding a bicycle, the Motor Vehicle Act of BC defines you as a ‘motor vehicle’ and ICBC will treat you as such during your bicycle accident claim. This definition surprises many cyclists when they admit to riding on the sidewalk or not obeying traffic controls.

After a bicycle accident, you may tend to minimize your injuries due to shock. DO NOT settle your personal injury claim too soon. It usually takes several days to feel the full effects of your injuries, so it’s crucial that you consult a physician during this time.
