Hit by a Car while Longboarding?
Longboarding is becoming a very popular sport in Vancouver.
Every day more and more longboarders take to our streets.
And as a result more and more longboarders are getting hit by cars.
So what happens if you get hit and hurt while riding a longboard?
Can you make an ICBC injury claim?
In short, YES.
But this type of claim isn't without controversy.
Longboarders are like motorcyclists.
There's a stigma about the whole "longboarding thing" that you're going to need to tackle.
You see, the media has painted a picture of longboarders as "renegades", "rule breakers", " troublemakers".
I think you know what I mean.
And as a result there's a bias against longboarders. That bias can lead to the conclusion that a longboarder MUST HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG!
Otherwise, why would they have been hit by a car??
That's the starting point for any longboarder who gets hit by a car and is making an ICBC injury claim.
As a result, a longboarder who's advancing an ICBC injury claim needs to make sure that they handle the issue of responsiblilty for their accident carefully... right out of the gate.
