Vancouver lawyers know that motorcyclists are often perceived by the general public to be at fault for motorcycle accidents. Vancouver lawyers at Bronson Jones & Company LLP also know, however, that the general perception is wrong – in the majority of multi-vehicle collisions, the other vehicle is at fault, not the motorcycle. The determination of who is at fault is extremely important, as it impacts who is liable for any injuries or damage caused by the accident. Any portion of fault that is assigned to you will correspondingly reduce your claim for personal injury compensation. For example, if you and the other driver are equally at fault for the accident, your claim for personal injury damages will be reduced by 50 per cent. Given how important the finding of fault is to the overall claim for compensation, this article will review how liability for a motorcycle accident is determined.
