Motorcycle Accidents


Motorcycle accidents happen all too often in Nova Scotia. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact a motorcycle accident lawyer that can help you claim the compensation you may be entitled to.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

There is still a common misconception among drivers that most times, motorcyclists are to blame when they get into an accident. Due to the risky nature of the vehicles, motorists often think that the one who chose to ride the motorcycle is also risky by nature. The Nova Scotia courts thankfully, do not hold this same opinion.

Most often motorcycle accidents happen because other drivers simply do not pay enough attention to the road and so they do not see the motorcyclist. This happens most often when the driver of a car is turning left in an intersection while a motorcyclist is driving straight through the same intersection. But it is not the only time it happens.

Changing lanes without noticing a motorcyclist and turning right and failing to see a motorcyclist in the right-hand lane are also common causes of motorcycle accidents.

Distracted driving and drivers who are driving under the influence are also factors in motorcycle accidents. But there can be many causes of motorcycle accidents.

When a motorcyclist is injured in an accident no matter the cause, it is important they speak to a motorcycle accident lawyer   that can help them determine the actual cause and help them with the rest of their case.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Due to the fact that motorcyclists often have little more than a helmet protecting them in the case of an accident, injuries are often some of the most severe. Permanent disfigurement, amputations of limbs, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, and traumatic brain injuries are some of the most serious injuries a motorcyclist can suffer.

Injuries that are less common but that can still cause the victim suffering include road rash, facial fractures, broken bones and burns. Anytime someone is injured in a motorcycle accident, they may have to pay expenses out of their own pocket for medical bills, lost income, housekeeping and home maintenance services, and property loss.

motorcycle accident lawyer can help victims file a personal injury claim to recover the cost of these expenses.

Proving Motorcycle Accident Claims

Unlike a bicycle accident, there is an onus on victims to prove that the other party was at fault for motorcycle accidents, even though motorcyclists also do not have the same protection as drivers of other vehicles. Motorcyclists may also be found partly to blame and in most cases, this occurs when the motorcyclist is not carrying the proper license required to operate a motorcycle.
