New Waterford Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

In accordance with the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, all drivers on the roads and highways in and around New Waterford owe a duty of care to all other road-users, including the people who ride motorcycles. When motorcycle riders are involved in collisions caused by drivers who have failed to fulfill their duty of care, the consequences can be deadly.

When drivers violate local traffic laws and engage in wrongful conduct on the road, even for the briefest of moments, their negligence could lead to an accident in which an unsuspecting motorcycle rider loses their life. Their negligence could also cause an accident survivor to sustain severe, life-changing injuries. When this happens, the at-fault driver may be required to financially compensate the injured motorcyclist for damages they have incurred as a result of their injuries.

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

Unlike the occupants of passenger vehicles equipped with built-in safety features, motorcycle riders have little protection in the event of a collision. With only wearable protective gear like helmets keeping them safe from the dangers of the road, motorcycle riders involved in collisions with negligent drivers often sustain a host of injuries ranging in severity from moderate to catastrophic. These injuries frequently 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

Because of the injuries sustained in collisions caused by negligent drivers, motorcycle accident survivors often incur significant financial losses. This is especially true for accident survivors whose injuries make it impossible to perform the duties of their jobs. In these cases, injured motorcycle riders could find themselves struggling to afford their necessary costs of medical care on top of their regular monthly expenses.

Although insurance policyholders who survive injurious collisions may be able to recover some financial compensation through their insurance provider’s accident benefits, the compensation available to severely injured motorcycle riders may not adequately cover their total damages. That is why, if a negligent driver caused a collision in which you sustained injuries, consulting with our motorcycle accident lawyers serving New Waterford could be very beneficial.

By working with our motorcycle accident lawyers serving New Waterford, you may be able to pursue a civil claim to recover damages you incurred as a result of your accident, as well as damages you may incur in the future.
