“A punch in the gut”: Vancouver cyclist charged thousands to repair vehicle that hit him

1 min read

A Vancouver cyclist is speaking out over a $3,700 bill he says he got from ICBC, after he was hit by a vehicle while riding on a bike route last summer.

Ben Bolliger told Global News he was struck by a driver who ran a stop sign while cycling to get lunch at Granville Island in July. The collision sent him flying 14 metres and left him with with multiple injuries.

“My foot was broken, my hand was broken; I have a metal plate in here now,” he told Global News.

He said he was shocked when eight months into his recovery, he received a letter from ICBC demanding $3,752.01.

The letter states that Bolliger was driving an uninsured vehicle at the time of the collision, meaning he must pay for the insured driver’s repair claim.

“It’s a punch in the gut. It really is a punch in the gut,” Bolliger said. “How am I on the hook for getting hit by a car?”
