Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Warmer weather means more motorcycles will be on the road. Unfortunately, this means a higher probability of motorcycle accidents occurring. Because motorcycles do not offer all the safety features passenger vehicles do – namely a large amount of material around you – injuries are often severe and sometimes fatal. It can take only a couple of seconds for even experienced motorcyclists to become involved in an accident.

The law says all Canadian motorcycle riders must wear a helmet. While this can help riders from being injured, it is not necessarily a sure thing in many cases.

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

• Right of way violation by car and truck drivers
• Speeding
• Limited visibility
• Weather conditions
• Road hazards

Motorcyclists must always have a good sense of what the situation is at any given time. Motorcycles are small and can be very fast. Car and truck drivers may not see them and pull out in front of motorcyclists. However, when one of these passenger vehicles negligently pulls out in front of you, causing you to swerve or hit the vehicle, you may be able to file a claim with one of Findlay Law’s experienced motorcycle attorneys. You may also have a claim if road conditions that should have been taken care of caused your motorcycle accident.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in the Burlington, Ontario area due to another person’s negligence, please contact Findlay law offices to set up an initial case consultation.
