What ICBC Looks For
ICBC will also often take a critical look at the condition of your motorcycle. Things like tire pressure and the condition of your tires can be a factor that affects liability—and consequently, the value of your personal injury claim damages. Similarly, where you choose to position your motorcycle in the lane while driving can be a factor. Generally, the accepted or preferred lane position is the left side or centre of the lane.
Finally, your actions preceding the accident may be carefully reviewed. As in any vehicle accident, the evidence of eye witnesses, and from the accident scene itself, can play a critical role in establishing liability and a claim for damages. If you can, always take steps to obtain witness names and contact information.
