A Vancouver motorcycle accident victim faces profound challenges legally, financially, medically, and beyond.

Non-English speakers—those who only speak Farsi, French, Spanish, or Mandarin Chinese—may find the road ahead fantastically difficult.

Here are some tips for how to make progress and stay sane.

Tip #1: Write down all your fears, frustrations, doubts and worries regarding the accident.

Maybe you are concerned that you will not be able to find a good Vancouver motorcycle accident attorney where folks speak Mandarin Chinese (or your language). Maybe you are worried about who will take care of your cat now that you are in the hospital. Write down all your concerns about the bike accident on paper, so they are not floating around chaotically in your head. Once you have written them down, you can more accurately and strategically address them.

 

Tip #2: Lean on family and friends.

It is hard enough to live and work in Vancouver if you do not speak the native language. It is harder still if you lack a robust social support network. You might be a proud, independent person, but now is the time to let that go. Reach out to other people who might be able to help. Ask for favors.

 

Tip #3: Reflect on and learn from any mistakes you made.

For instance, maybe you were not wearing your helmet and you suffered a brain injury. You could have died, but you did not. Leverage this situation as a learning experience. If you can still ride, figure out what you will do differently in the future to be a safer rider.

Think of ways to turn this devastating experience into a transformative one that will lead you to more health and happiness.

 

Tip #4: Get in touch with a Vancouver motorcycle accident lawyer immediately.
