The Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) indicates that there were approximately 2,100 motorcycle accidents in British Columbia in 2013. These accidents can leave victims with extremely serious injuries, as motorcyclists are not protected in any way by the body of the vehicle they are operating. Motorcyclists can easily be thrown from their bikes, often resulting in secondary injury when they come into contact with the ground or other vehicles. In many cases, people injured in motorcycle accidents develop serious medical complications that may affect them for years or even decades after an accident occurred.
