Shelburne Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

The people who ride motorcycles have virtually no protection in the event of a collision caused by a negligent driver. Instead, they rely on their own experience, instincts, and wearable protective gear should they encounter a dangerous driver on the roads and highways in and around Shelburne. Unfortunately, all too frequently, motorcycle accidents near Shelburne end in rider casualties.

When drivers fail to exercise a reasonable degree of caution behind the wheel and engage in illegal behaviour while their vehicle is in motion, even for the shortest of moments, their negligence can have far-reaching consequences for unsuspecting motorcycle accident victims. All drivers throughout the province are obligated by law to comply with the traffic laws and safety regulations detailed in the Motor Vehicle Act. Violations of the rules of the road that cause injurious collisions with other vehicles to occur could be considered negligence. Common examples of driver negligence that frequently cause injurious motorcycle collisions 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

Failure to abide by the rules of the road can cause severe accidents with severe repercussions. Oftentimes, when motorcycle accident victims survive near-fatal collisions caused by another driver’s negligence, they sustain catastrophic, permanent, disabling injuries that impact all areas of their lives. Injured accident victims may struggle to maintain their physical well-being, mental health, and financial stability. This is especially true for injured motorcycle accident survivors who can no longer work because of the debilitating impact of their injuries. For these injured motorcycle accident victims, making ends meet can be an overwhelming challenge. All because of another motor vehicle operator’s negligence, their overall quality of life can be greatly diminished for years to come.

Even though, like the drivers of passenger vehicles, motorcyclists are required to be insured, in the event of a severe collision causing injuries, the accident benefits available to them may not provide them with adequate coverage. The financial losses sustained by seriously injured motorcyclists can be enormous, and can persist for years following their collision.
