Richmond Hill Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Riding a motorcycle can be a thrilling, liberating experience. There is no sensation quite like it. Many motorcycle enthusiasts value the time they spend taking on solo trips throughout the region, as well as the connections they make with other local bikers. 

Unfortunately, riding a motorcycle is an extremely dangerous activity. Recently, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) reported a dramatic increase in fatal motorcycle accidents, with deaths now exceeding the annual average for the last decade. In the span of just one year, the rate of fatal motorcycle accidents in the province nearly doubled.

While passenger vehicles have the benefit of built-in security features to protect their occupants in the event of a crash, motorcycle riders have only wearable safety gear to rely on if they are struck by another vehicle. Although helmets and other forms of protective clothing can offer some security from the perils of the road, motorcycle riders who are involved in collisions often lose their lives or sustain severe, even catastrophic injuries.

Since the operators of all motor vehicles (including motorcycles) are required to carry mandatory automotive insurance that meets the requirements laid out in the province’s Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS), motorcycle riders who have been hurt in a collision should be able to collect no-fault accident benefits to help them recover costs arising from the injuries they have sustained. These benefits should be available to injured motorcycle accident survivors whether or not their own actions caused the collision to occur.

Unfortunately, the costs associated with injuries sustained in severe motorcycle accidents can be astronomical. Oftentimes, the accident benefits available to injured collision survivors through their insurance policies are insufficient. This can leave seriously injured motorcyclists in financial distress.

Furthermore, often it is apparent that insurance providers have a clear bias against claimants seeking benefits for injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle riders are often depicted in popular media as reckless, devil-may-care thrillseekers. Owing to this commonly believed stereotype, insurance providers might look for reasons to deny or unnecessarily scrutinize an injured motorcyclist’s claim for accident benefits. 

Most motorcycle riders appreciate the risks associated with their vehicle of choice. Indeed, the majority of motorcyclists are hyper-vigilant about personal safety on the roads. Many collisions that lead to injuries requiring hospitalization are often, in fact, the result of another driver’s negligence. 

Drivers who violate local traffic laws and fail take reasonable precautions to protect their fellow road-users might be considered negligent. Common examples of driver negligence include:

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