When passenger, transport, or commercial vehicles collide with motorcycles on the roads and highways in and around Port Hawkesbury, the consequences can be deadly. Motorcycle riders are among the most vulnerable road-users, protected only by wearable gear in the event of a crash. Those who are fortunate enough to survive a collision caused by a negligent motor vehicle operator often sustain severe, catastrophic, and permanent injuries.
In an instant, the negligence of another driver can change the course of a motorcycle rider’s life forever. Injured motorcycle accident survivors often find their physical well-being, their psychological health, and their financial stability to be in jeopardy, simply because another driver failed to operate their motor vehicle in a safe, cautious, and considerate manner.
Injured motorcycle accident victims often acquire a number of medical complaints as a result of their collision. These injuries could range in severity from moderate to catastrophic, and could require hospitalization, surgeries, physical rehabilitation, drastic lifestyle adjustments, medical equipment, and other forms of necessary care.
Throughout the province, anyone who operates a motor vehicle is required to abide by the rules of the road mandated within the Motor Vehicle Act. As such, all drivers are legally obligated to provide a duty of care to other drivers, and exercise a reasonable degree of caution while operating their vehicles. If a driver violates local traffic laws, causing an injurious collision with a motorcycle rider to occur, they could be considered negligent.
Common examples of driver negligence that often leads to injury-causing motorcycle accidents include:
- Texting while driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
- Distracted driving
- Ignoring traffic signs/signals
- Improperly changing lanes
- Driving recklessly
- And more
Negligent drivers whose wrongful conduct has led to an injury-causing collision with a motorcyclist may be responsible for providing the injured accident survivor with financial compensation for damages they have incurred because of the crash. Even though injured motorcycle collision survivors may be able to recover accident benefits from their insurance provider to offset the costs of injury-related expenses that they have incurred, these benefits may not fully cover an injured accident victim’s total damages.
