Safely operating a motorcycle requires alertness, experience, and a great deal of caution. In Campbellton, most motorcycle operators know the importance of attentiveness and vigilance while operating their vehicles on local roads and highways. Unfortunately, even the most safety-minded motorcyclists run the risk of sustaining life-threatening injuries in accidents caused by another motor vehicle operator’s negligence.
Throughout the province, anyone who operates a motor vehicle is required by law to fulfill a duty of care to all other road-users, including motorcycle riders. Failure to uphold this legally required duty of care by engaging in unlawful behaviour could put the lives of other road-users at risk.
If the wrongful actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other violations of traffic laws lead to a collision, the driver responsible for causing the accident may be considered negligent. Examples of negligence that frequently lead to injurious or fatal accidents with motorcycle riders include:
- Texting while driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving
- Ignoring traffic signals
- Improper lane changing
- Other violations of traffic regulations
The negligence of other drivers can have devastating repercussions. Motorcycle riders who are struck by negligent drivers of larger passenger vehicles could lose their lives in tragic, preventable collisions. Those who do survive near-fatal motorcycle accidents often sustain a range of injuries, varying in severity from moderate to catastrophic. These injuries can have profound, life-changing impacts on the survivors of severe motorcycle accidents.
As a result of the injuries they have sustained in a collision caused by a negligent driver, injured motorcycle accident survivors often acquire physical difficulties or disabilities. The process of recovering from or learning to live with debilitating injuries can be an emotional, isolating, and demoralizing experience. Many seriously injured motorcycle accident victims develop additional disabling conditions in the form of injury-related mental health issues. These may include:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Alcohol use disorder
- And more
Coping with their newly acquired physical injuries and resulting mental health concerns can cause injured motorcycle accident victims to incur significant financial losses. All motor vehicle operators in the province are required to carry mandatory insurance, and so, injured motorcycle collision survivors may be able to recover accident benefits through their insurance provider. However, depending on the effects an accident victim’s injuries have on their quality of life, the benefits payments available to them through their insurer may not be sufficient to cover their total losses.
