Kitchener Motorcycle Accident Lawyer


Whether a motorcyclist is riding just for fun, or rides as a part of their daily commute, they face a higher risk of accidents. Motorcyclists depend solely on their helmets to offer protection while riding. Because motorcyclists have to share lanes with all other motorists, they are usually the most exposed drivers on the road.

Given how often motorcyclists are injured, and the commonly serious nature of those injuries, it is not hard to imagine how much an injured rider would have to pay in medical bills. In addition to the high medical costs, it is common for motorcycles to be completely destroyed during the crash.

The steep medical and property damage costs can be a huge burden to a rider who is already struggling to cope with their injuries. If you were recently injured in a crash, you may be entitled to compensation for the damages you have suffered, with the help of a Kitchener personal injury lawyer. Contact a Kitchener motorcycle accident lawyer today.

Motorcycle Accidents Causes

According to Transport Canada, motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable travelers on our roads. Fatality rates for motorcyclists involved in a crash have steadily increased since 2004. This is due in part to the fact that riders do not have the protection vehicle drivers and passengers have.

When a rider is involved in an accident, they can sustain serious injuries that require extensive medical care during the recovery period. Some common causes of motorcycle accidents that warrant the attention of a Kitchener motorcycle accident lawyer include:

  • Other drivers fail to check for motorcycles
  • Drivers cannot see motorcycles in their blind spots
  • Poor driving conditions
  • Bad weather
  • Distracted driving
  • Impaired or intoxicated driving
  • Drivers’ lack of spatial judgment near motorcyclists
  • Lack of helmet protection

Typical Accident Injuries

Riding without a helmet is one of the top causes of motorcyclist death in Ontario and throughout Canada. Un-helmeted drivers are much more likely to sustain serious or deadly injuries during a crash.

However, even for motorcyclists who wear helmets, the possibility of serious or life-threatening injuries sustained in an accident is very high. Riders involved in a crash often suffer serious injuries, like those listed below:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Facial injuries
  • Injuries to the lower extremities
  • Loss of limb
  • Spinal injuries
  • Abdominal injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Injuries to the upper extremities

Many motorcyclists hurt in a crash sustain injuries to their upper and/or lower extremities, such as their arms and legs, regardless of whether they wore a helmet. Any one of these injuries could lead to long recovery times, lost wages due to missing work, and rehabilitative expenses.

Contacting a Kitchener Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcyclists have just one week after the crash to notify their insurance company about the accident. After that, riders have very limited periods to file an Application for Accident Benefits, and to file a claim against another driver if they were at fault for the accident.

If you were you recently injured in an accident in Kitchener, and you believe someone else was at fault for the crash, contact a Kitchener motorcycle accident lawyer today.
