Bathurst Motorcycle Accident Lawyer


In accordance with the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, all drivers on the roads and highways in and around Bathurst are required to provide a duty of care to all road-users. This includes other drivers, occupants in passenger vehicles, the operators of large commercial trucks, cyclists, pedestrians, and motorcycle riders.

Motorcycle riders are among the most vulnerable road-users. Whereas the drivers of passenger vehicles have built-in safety features to protect them in the event of a crash, motorcycle riders have only wearable gear like helmets to rely on if they are involved in an accident. This is why motorcycle riders inherently understand the importance of caution, vigilance, and attentiveness while riding their dangerous vehicles.

Unfortunately, even the safest motorcyclist is vulnerable to the wrongful conduct of another driver. When the drivers of larger passenger vehicles neglect the duty of care they owe other road-users, their wrongful behaviour could lead to a collision with a motorcycle rider. In these cases, as a result of their failure to exercise reasonable caution behind the wheel of their vehicle, motorcyclists could lose their lives or sustain severe, debilitating injuries.

When drivers fail to fulfill their duty of care to other road-users and a collision ensues as a result, the at-fault driver may be considered negligent. Common examples of driver negligence that often results in injury-causing collisions with unsuspecting motorcycle riders include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Ignoring traffic signals
  • Improper lane changing
  • Other violations of traffic regulations

Motorcycle accidents caused by the negligence of another driver can have deadly results. Families can lose their loved ones in a senseless, violent, and wholly preventable accident. Furthermore, motorcyclists who manage to survive severe collisions often sustain catastrophic, permanent, disabling injuries.

Injured motorcycle accident survivors can face grueling and expensive roads to recovery. And while they may be able to access accident benefits from their insurance providers to offset the necessary costs of injury-related expenses, often the coverage available to them is not sufficient to cover their total financial losses. Furthermore, insurance companies may have an inherent bias against motorcycle drivers and overly scrutinize their claims in order to withhold certain benefits.
