Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Ottawa

It has never been more dangerous for motorcycle riders throughout the province. Recently, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) reported an unprecedented increase in fatal motorcycle accidents. In just one year, fatal motorcycle accidents have nearly doubled, and account for more than half of traffic deaths on the province’s roads and highways.

Although they are often depicted in pop culture as brash, thrill-seeking, and devil-may-care, the majority of motorcycle riders make sure they use an abundance of caution on the road. Motorcycle riders are all-too aware of how dangerous it can be to operate their vehicles, and how vulnerable they are to both the dangers of the road and the whims of negligent drivers. 

Unlike the occupants of passenger vehicles who can rely on their automobiles’ safety measures to protect them in the event of a crash, motorcycle riders have only wearable gear like helmets to keep them safe. And while this safety gear certainly provides necessary protection and often saves the lives of motorcycle accident victims, motorcycle riders are still susceptible to severe, even catastrophic injuries as the result of collisions with larger vehicles.

Injuries commonly sustained by the survivors of motorcycle accidents in Ottawa frequently require hospitalization, surgical procedures, the use of ambulatory assistance or prosthetics, lengthy periods of physical rehabilitation, and other costly medical expenses. While some of their injury-related costs might be offset by the no-fault accident benefits provided by their insurers, the insurance coverage to which injured motorcycle accident survivors are often entitled might not fully replace their total financial losses.

All drivers in the province are required to operate their motor vehicles in accordance with the rules of the road outlined in Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act. As such, all motor vehicle operators owe a duty of care to all road-users, including motorcycle riders. If a driver violates local traffic laws by engaging in wrongful actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other forms of negligent conduct on the road and an injury-causing motorcycle accident ensues, they might be responsible for financially compensating the injured victims of the collisions they incited. 

In Ottawa, common forms of driver negligence that often leads to severe, injury-causing motorcycle accidents include:

  • Improperly changing lanes
  • Operating the vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Ignoring traffic signs
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Speeding
  • Stunt driving / street racing 
  • And possibly more
