First and foremost, the motorcycle accident lawyers at Iacobelli Law Firm sincerely hope that the young man involved in this motorcycle accident makes a speedy and complete recovery from his injuries.
Although the accident is under investigation with York Regional Police, this type of accident is far too common. We see many motorcycle accidents that occur with left turning cars and trucks. Unfortunately, drivers sometimes fail to pay attention and turn into the path of approaching motorcycles. While it is always important to use caution when making a left turn, it is particularly important during the spring and summer months when many motorcycles are taking to the road. Because motorcycles are smaller than cars and trucks, some drivers fail to observe them or mistakenly judge them to be father away than they actually are. If you cannot clearly see all lanes of approaching traffic, do not commence your turn. Be patient and use extra caution.
