Even cautious and experienced cyclists are at risk of serious injury on Vancouver's busy roads. A UBC study in Vancouver and Toronto found that 77 percent of bike injuries in a sample were caused by collisions with motor vehicles, people or other obstructions. Infrastructure that increased bike proximity to cars, such as shared roadways, increased the risk of injury.
Bicycle accidents often involve difficult and complex questions of fault. We encourage victims of bicycle accidents to contact us as soon as possible, so that we may undertake an early investigation of the accident circumstances. Where necessary and appropriate, our lawyers are able to retain leading accident reconstruction experts to ensure that our clients have the best evidence available to them if their claim proceeds to court.
If you or someone you care about has been injured in a bike accident, our experienced lawyers at Sugden, McFee & Roos LLP can help you. The process of making a bicycle accident claim through ICBC can be stressful without a knowledgeable lawyer advocating on your behalf. We put over 25 years of experience to work when pursuing compensation for our injured clients.

Serious bike accident injuries such as neck, back, soft tissue and spinal cord injuries can be life-changing. Our lawyers have assisted many clients who are dealing with rehabilitation and a long, painful recovery following a bicycle accident.
