Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Protect your rights as a motorcycle accident victim in Ontario
The most recent findings of the Ontario Road Safety Annual Report (ORSAR) 2007 found that motorcycle accidents caused 48 deaths (3 of which were in the Region of Peel) and seriously injured 1,274 drivers in 2007 in the province of Ontario. Many of the seriously injured drivers suffered brain injuries, serious orthopaedic injuries, serious cuts, bruises and other road rash type injuries which resulted in serious and permanent scarring.
While the inherent dangers of riding a motorcycle are apparent to the public, the law has been designed to protect motorcycle drivers and its passengers in the same way as automobile drivers and passengers. The right to file a motor vehicle insurance claim for accident benefits, pain and suffering, and financial compensation is no different.
That being said, what has not changed throughout the years is the unfairness many motorcycle drivers receive because the public perceives that motorcycles themselves are unsafe and the drivers are to blame for participating in a high-risk activity. While these biases are not based on facts, they are however, compounded by the fact that most passenger vehicle drivers claim they never saw the motorcyclist in order to avoid responsibility. For both of these reasons and many more, it is important that motorcyclists hire an experienced Ontario motorcycle injury lawyer to represent their interests as quickly as possible.
As a serious injury lawyer, Roger R. Foisy and his team have successfully represented motorcycle driver and passenger victims.
