When a bicycle and a car collide, the injuries to the rider can be more severe than the injuries to the driver. This is because the rider does not have the protection of a seatbelt, headrest, or heavy vehicle. Even a bicycle helmet provides limited protection. Riders involved in car accidents often sustain serious injuries including brain injuries or concussions, whiplash or even spinal cord injuries.
After a bicycle accident, ICBC will often deny fault on behalf of the driver by arguing the bicycle was traveling too fast, riding on a sidewalk, traveling in the opposite direction of travel or riding through a cross walk. Without a speedometer or on-board camera, the bicyclist usually has little to say. However, with the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer, engineers can often examine the site of a bicycle crash to determine speed and other things relevant to the assessment of fault.
