Kingston and Ottawa Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
In Canada, motorcycle accidents result in more catastrophic injuries than any other vehicle accidents on our roads.
Motorcycle Accidents Are On the Rise
Although modern motorcycle gear, clothing, and helmets have become safer, the injuries and fatalities that result from motorcycle accidents on Canada’s roadways have not improved. New research shows that motorcycle accidents today cause just as many injuries and fatalities despite enhanced safety features. In fact, figures published by Transport Canada show that serious injuries and fatalities among motorcyclists are on the rise. Motorcycle accidents are costly both in terms of health care costs and lives lost.
Motorcyclists Are Subject to More Injuries and Fatalities
With less protection than an automobile driver, a motorcyclist can suffer more injuries in an accident. Motorcycle accidents are far more likely to result in life-altering injuries and death than automobile accidents, causing six times more medical costs, three times more injuries, and five times more fatalities. Victims of motorcycle accidents are far more likely to be hospitalized after an accident with injuries that can be costly in the way of medical care and loss of work.
These injuries can include
Road rash and severe abrasions
Traumatic brain injuries and concussions
Back and neck trauma
Permanent muscle damage
Loss of limbs
Spinal cord injuries
Motorcycle accidents that result in fatalities can mean that families are forever changed in a moment. We are dedicated to motorcycle accident victims and their families and are committed to recovering the maximum in compensation that can be secured in the unique circumstances of the case for their losses.
Unfortunately, negligence is often the cause of motorcycle accidents. But we see that insurance companies often are biased against motorcyclists. This means that victims of motorcycle accidents don’t get the compensation they desperately need after a life-altering accident. When this happens, the victim of an accident should consult with a skilled motorcycle accident lawyer in Kingston and Ottawa.
