Saint John Motorcycle Accident Lawyer


When motorcycle riders are involved in collisions with passenger vehicles, there is a higher likelihood of them being injured than the operator or passengers of the other vehicle. While passenger vehicles have the benefit of built-in safety features like steel bodies, seatbelts, and airbags, motorcycle riders wear their safety gear on their bodies. In the event of a collision, a helmet may be the only piece of safety equipment protecting the motorcyclist from the pavement.

Riding a motorcycle can be dangerous. Indeed, there is no experience quite like the thrill of traveling freely at intensely high speeds. However, the thrill of a motorcycle’s freedom and velocity comes at a price. Motorcyclists take a risk every time they set out on their bikes. Even the slightest errors on the road could cost them their lives.

Most motorcycle riders in Saint John appreciate the risks involved with operating their vehicles, and do so with a great deal of caution and focus. However, even the most safety-conscious motorcyclist can be hurt in a crash caused by a negligent driver.

In accordance with provincial law, all drivers in Saint John are required to provide a duty of care to other road-users, including pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcycle operators. If a driver fails to take reasonable precautions to prevent accidents on the road and another party is injured as a result, they may be considered negligent. Often, a driver may be considered negligent when they violate traffic laws, such as:

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

When drivers fail to uphold the duty of care they owe to other road users, including motorcyclists, and collisions occur as a result, the person riding their motorcycle could be killed. Motorcycle collisions may also result in severe, even catastrophic injuries. These injuries may 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

If another driver’s negligence caused you to sustain injuries in a motorcycle crash, they may be liable for damages you incurred because of your injuries. Even though your insurance policy may provide you with some financial compensation through Section B benefits, these resources may not fully cover your total financial losses in the aftermath of a serious collision.

Our motorcycle accident lawyers serving Saint John may be able to help you recover  the financial compensation to which you are entitled by filing a civil claim against the negligent driver whose wrongful actions or inactions behind the wheel caused your accident. By working with our Saint John motorcycle accident lawyers, you may be able to recover economic and non-economic damages, including pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, and possibly more.
