London Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorcyclists are at serious risk of injury when they are involved in a collision with another car. When two passenger vehicles get into an accident on the road, there is a good chance both drivers will walk away with minor injuries. But when a car and motorcycle get into the same type of accident, injuries suffered by the motorcyclist will be much more severe.
This is because motorcycles do not have a large steel frame that surrounds the driver, nor do they have additional safety equipment such as airbags. The only protection motorcyclists have is their helmet, and this often is not enough. It is for this reason that brain injuries are the most common injury to motorcycle drivers. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident caused by another driver’s negligence, contact our London motorcycle accident lawyers today for a free initial consultation on your case.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Just like car accidents, there can be many causes of motorcycle accidents in London. The main cause, however, is when other drivers simply do not see the motorcycle. This is most likely to occur when a car is making a left-hand turn and fails to see the motorcycle approaching the intersection. It can also occur when drivers are making a right-handed turn and do not see a motorcyclist traveling beside them.
Compensation for Accidents in London
Ontario is a no-fault insurance province, meaning that anyone involved in an accident will need to go through their own insurance company in order to claim accident benefits. However amounts available are limited and often do cover the full extent of the injuries.
When this happens, injured victims may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit to recover the compensation they need from the at-fault party. Our London motorcycle accident lawyers may be able to help injured accident victims recover the compensation they deserve.
