Practice Motorcycle Safety Habits When You Ride

Passenger cars, trucks, commercial vehicles, and buses must all learn to share Hamilton’s roads and highways safely. As a motorcycle driver, you may do your part to promote safe and effective sharing of the roads. You may take the following steps toward promoting safe and responsible driving:

  • Take a motorcycle driver training course from a qualified instructor.
  • Remain in your lane and avoid creating a mini lane by riding in between cars.
  • Wear a properly designed, well-fitting helmet on each trip.
  • Wear bright clothes that increase your visibility for car and truck drivers.
  • Approach intersections slowly and enter them carefully.
  • Use your signals to alert other drivers to your intended actions.

If you took these safety measures, always practiced safe driving, and were still injured in an accident, speak to a lawyer right away. You may have the foundation of a personal injury lawsuit that lets you collect compensation from the at-fault driver. Review the details of your accident with a Hamilton motorcycle accident lawyer today.

Types of Damages in a Motorcycle Accident

When you are the victim of a collision between your motorcycle and a larger vehicle, you may sustain an amazing amount of expenses and losses.

If your case is eligible for financial compensation, you may be able to hold the at-fault driver responsible for the full cost of the accident. The types of damages you might be eligible to receive include:

  • Aggravated damages, which may cover emotional distress
  • Compensatory damages, which may cover your actual financial losses
  • Non-pecuniary damages, which may cover pain and suffering
  • Pecuniary damages, which may cover intangible losses
  • Punitive damages, which are intended to punish intentional wrongs
  • And possibly more

Protect Your Compensation Claim By Filing Early

Call 1-888-608-2111 for available options or Book a Consultation

If you or a family member were injured when a vehicle collided with your motorcycle, you may want to hold the driver who hit you responsible for his actions. That could mean pursuing the driver or their insurance company.

Pursuing the at-fault driver could mean you might receive financial compensation for your accident-related expenses. Protect your ability to file a claim by contacting a lawyer as soon as possible.

Once you have had your injuries treated and your condition stabilizes, contact a lawyer. Waiting to file your claim is risky. According to the Limitations Act, if you do not file your claim for compensation within two years of the motorcycle accident, you may not be able to file a claim at all. Speak to a Hamilton motorcycle accident lawyer who may be able to ensure you meet the appropriate timeline and avoid putting your claim for compensation in jeopardy.
