New Glasgow Motorcycle Accident Lawyer


In accordance with the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, all drivers on the roads and highways in and around New Glasgow owe a duty of care to all other road-users, including motorcyclists. When drivers engage in wrongful conduct behind the wheel and violate local traffic laws, they endanger themselves and other, unsuspecting road-users. If their behaviour causes an accident with another vehicle, the at-fault driver could be considered negligent.

Some examples of driver negligence that frequently cause injurious motor vehicle collisions in and around New Glasgow include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • Improperly changing lanes
  • Driving recklessly
  • And more

The negligence of another driver could have profound, life-changing impacts on local motorcycle riders. When passenger vehicles collide with motorcycles– operated by motorists who are relatively unprotected from the hazards of the road– the results can be fatal. Motorcycle accidents in New Glasgow are often deadly. Innocent, unsuspecting motorcycle riders can lose their lives in an instant, all because of another driver’s failure to consider the safety of others.

Motorcycle riders who manage to survive severe collisions with negligent drivers often sustain severe injuries that adversely affect their overall qualities of life. Injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents can range from moderate to catastrophic, and commonly 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

Regardless of the severity of their injuries, people who have been hurt in motorcycle accidents are often forced to cope with more than physical pain and discomfort. The process of recovering from injuries can be long, isolating, and emotionally challenging, causing many injured accident victims to acquire serious mental health issues, including depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Additionally, most injured accident victims incur substantial financial losses. This might be especially true for injured motorcyclists whose medical conditions prevent them from returning to their workplaces. And while the people who survive injurious collisions may be able to recover some financial compensation through their insurance provider’s accident benefits, the compensation available to them may not adequately cover their total damages.

That is why, if you were injured in a collision caused by a negligent driver, consulting with our motorcycle accident lawyers serving New Glasgow could be beneficial. Negligent drivers whose wrongful actions or inactions on the road were responsible for causing collisions may be responsible for financially compensating the people injured by their negligence.
