Accident benefits can apply to both parties. Know your rights.
If you are hit by a motor vehicle while riding your bicycle, you may have an ICBC claim. Similarly, if a cyclist causes an accident and you are the driver or passenger in a motor vehicle and are injured, you may also have an ICBC claim. In both situations you may be entitled to Accident Benefits (also called Part 7 or “no-fault” benefits), which cover disability and medical expenses, and you may have a damages claim for injuries suffered because of the accident.
