Edmundston Motorcycle Accident Lawyer


As thrilling as it can be to ride a motorcycle, the people who operate these dangerous machines are more susceptible to fatalities and serious injuries on the road. Even the most cautious, attentive, and experienced motorcyclist could be involved in an accident with a negligent driver.

On the roads and highways in and around Edmundston, motorcycle accidents are often the result of another driver’s negligence. Negligence occurs when a driver fails to fulfill the duty of care they owe to other road-users. Since all motor vehicle operators in the province have a legal requirement to obey traffic laws and exercise a reasonable degree of caution behind the wheel, if a driver violates rules of the road and a collision occurs as a result, the driver who behaved unlawfully may be considered negligent. When drivers behave in a wrongful manner that does not take the safety of other road-users into consideration, they put the lives of other drivers, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcycle riders at risk.

Some common examples of negligence that often leads to serious collisions in the Edmunston area 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

When the wrongful conduct of a negligent driver causes a collision with a motorcycle, the at-fault driver may be able to walk away from their accident without a scratch. Passenger vehicles have built-in safety features intended to protect their occupants in the event of a crash. Unfortunately, oftentimes motorcyclists have only a helmet or other wearable gear to keep them safe. Because of this discrepancy, motorcycle accident victims often sustain severe, permanent, life-altering injuries as the result of another person’s negligence. Some injuries frequently sustained in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Strains and sprains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • And more

Injured motorcycle accident victims who have mandatory insurance policies may be able to recover some compensation for injury-related expenses incurred as a result of their collision. However, the available accident benefits to which they may be entitled often do not sufficiently replace the total damages they have incurred. That is why, if you have been injured in a collision, speaking with our motorcycle accident lawyers serving Edmundston could be beneficial to you.
