Unfortunately, every year many motorcyclists in Ontario are seriously injured in motorcycle crashes. Unfortunaely many people hold the belief that motorcycle riders cause these accidents. In fact, the statistics more often reveal that most motorcycle crashes are caused by other drivers. Very often, drivers simply fail to see motorcyclists. Many motorcycle riders are cautious and safe drivers. They often attempt to increase awareness of their presence by wearing reflective gear, or adding loud pipes to their motorcycle. We all have to be aware of motorcycles sharing the
roads and we should give them plenty of space.
Claims involving motorcycle accidents are complex and require a lawyer with experience in this area. They are vigorously defended on liability. In fatal cases, the other driver involved will often be the only witness to the collision, and may offer self-serving statements about how the collision occurred.
As a lawyer, I have obtained a lot of experience in litigating motorcycle accident claims. Sadly, most of these cases involve catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Through my experience, I have also had the opportunity to work with some of the world's leading experts on motorcycle safety and accident reconstruction. I bring this experience and commitment to every motorcycle accident claim.
