Call a Lawyer if Injured in a Motorcycle Accident in Toronto

The winding roads that weave through the more scenic areas of Toronto prove to be some of the most popular with motorcycle riders. The views along Bayview Avenue and the Don Valley Expressway relax motorcyclists with scenic rides. Unfortunately, these two areas of Toronto’s roadways have also been the sites of the majority of Toronto’s fatal motorcycle wrecks over the past 15 years, according to Global News.

Car drivers also may lose themselves in the surroundings on the road and simply stop watching for nearby motorcyclists. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident in Toronto, call a lawyer to help you recover damages.

Accidents Involving Motorcycles are Often Caused by Unaware Motorists

Accidents between motorcycles and other vehicles are often caused by motorists failing to pay attention or not watching out for approaching motorcycles. Because a motorcycle has a smaller profile than other vehicles, a motorist may not realize that a motorcycle is approaching the vehicle or is in the blind spot until a collision occurs. The motorist’s lack of awareness can have devastating consequences for the lives of the motorcyclist and his or her family.

Motorcycle Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries

When a motorcycle and a car or truck collide, the motorcyclist’s injuries are often severe and dramatic, if not deadly. After a motorcycle accident, in addition to Accident Benefits, the motorcyclist and his or her family may be entitled to a variety of damages from the other motorist, including:

  • medical expenses;
  • lost income or wages;
  • payment for required rehabilitation or supplementary medical procedures;
  • payment for pain and suffering;
  • payment for loss of consortium; and
  • funeral and death benefits.

The circumstances of each accident determine the recovery that can be sought from an offending motorist. That’s in part why it’s so important to seek legal help from a lawyer if you have suffered serious injuries. The damages listed above are relatively common in motorcycle accidents.

Fighting the Stigma of Unsafe Motorcyclists

Even though many motorcyclists practice safe driving, there remains a stigma that motorcycles are dangerous or unsafe. Many people assume that a motorcyclist was speeding or operating the motorcycle in a reckless manner and is therefore responsible for any accident.

If a motorcyclist is partially to blame for an accident, the court presiding over any lawsuit will assign liability depending on the degree of fault of each party. For example, if it can be proved that a motorist’s negligence was 80 percent of the cause of the accident, while a motorcyclist’s excessive speed was 20 percent of the cause, the motorcyclist still can recover damages from the other motorist, but they are reduced appropriately. A lawyer may be able to help victims and their families ensure fault is assigned appropriately based on the facts of the case.

The lawyers at Preszler Injury Lawyers understand that the majority of motorcyclists are responsible drivers and will work to help motorcycle accident victims and their families recover the necessary damages to help repair their lives after an accident. If you or your loved one has been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident in or around Toronto, call 1-800-JUSTICE® to set up a consultation and case evaluation.
