If you or a loved one was injured because of the negligent or reckless actions of a car or truck driver, you have rights. The experienced personal injury lawyers at Hoogbruin & Company are here to protect those rights.
Reckless and careless drivers and unsafe road conditions result in hundreds of unnecessary bicycle accident injuries and deaths every year. Bicyclists and their families are left suffering the consequences of broken bones, serious head injuries and changed lives.
The driver of a car or truck does not have the right of way just because he or she has a motor vehicle. What drivers do have is a responsibility to drive with care and to be aware of others with whom they share the road.
Meeting the Challenges of Bike Accident Cases
Since 1987, our personal injury lawyers have been pursuing justice for adult and child victims of bike accidents. In addition to an experienced team of litigators, we retain the best medical professionals who assist us in understanding and presenting complex medical information to juries and ICBC. When injuries are serious, the effects can last a lifetime. It’s important to understand the full impact to ensure you or your loved one receive full and fair compensation.
We are committed to thoroughly investigating the cause of bike accidents, not simply relying on police reports. Unfortunately, the police are busy and do not always have the resources they would like to do thorough and complete investigation. Sometimes they wrongfully assume that the bicyclist was at fault rather than the speeding motorist or fail to interview witnesses to follow through on hit-and-run cases. Just because a driver was not charged with a crime does not mean the driver was in the right. We do the legwork to ensure our client’s case is solid.
Whether you or your child was hit by a commercial vehicle, car or bus while biking, get the legal help you need. After being injured in a bike accident call our personal injury lawyers at Hoogbruin & Company at 604-609-3783 for a free consultation.
