Motorcycle Accident Lawyer: Left Turning Vehicle Accident Results in Serious Injuries for Motorcyclist in Richmond Hill
There are reports of another serious accident involving a car and a motorcycle at an intersection. On the early evening of Wednesday June 20 2018, there was an accident involving a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle and a black Mercedes at the intersection of Leslie and Greenhill Avenue, in Richmond Hill. According to early reports, the Mercedes was travelling northbound on Leslie Street and was making a left turn onto westbound Greenhill Avenue when it collided with the motorcycle that was travelling southbound on Leslie Street.
The driver of the motorcycle, a 21-year-old man from Richmond Hill, suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to hospital.
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.

Although many members of the the public believe that motorcycle riders are responsible for accidents, studies have regularly revealed that many motorcycle crash injuries are caused by the negligence of the other vehicle driver. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in Ontario include the following:
vehicle turning left across the path of an oncoming motorcycle;
vehicle changing lanes and sideswiping or cutting-off the motorcycle;
vehicle drivers fails to see the motorcycle; and
speeding by the vehicle driver and/or motorcycle.
Fatal motorcycle accidents in Ontario often occur when drivers of other vehicles fail to observe the motorcycle. In particular, motorcycles are vulnerable when cars or trucks suddenly pull out of driveways or turn across the path of an approaching motorcycle.
Ontario Motorcycle accidents are vigorously defended by insurance companies.

This afternoon, there is another report of a serious accident involving a motorcycle and a car near Front Street and Parliament Street in Toronto. According to information reported, the motorcyclist was transported to a Toronto Hospital via EMS with serious injuries.
First and foremost we sincerely hope that the man injured in this Toronto motorycle accident makes a speedy and complete recovery from his injuries.
This summer I have had occasion to write about a number of motorycle accidents in Toronto and the GTA. The number of motorcycle accidents in Toronto and surrounding areas in Ontario is really troubling. Many motorcycle collisions result in severe injuries for the motorcyclist and, sometimes, the consequences are fatal.
As I have written in a number of my previous blog posts, a great number of motorcycle collisions are entirely avoidable if drivers would simply pay more attention to the presence of motorcycles sharing our road. We are now well into summer, and it should come as no surprise that motorcycles are all around us on the roads in Ontario. Please remember to check blind spots before changing lanes, and look for the presence of motorycles before making turns or pulling out of parking lots. These are the common scenarios which result in many motorycle collisions, which may have devastating consequences.
Motorcyclists should also ride carefully, and use extra caution when riding near intersections, and leave plenty of space around other vehicles. The use of good riding gear can also reduce the severity of injuries and help protect a motorcyclist in the event of a crash.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident, do not delay in speaking with an Ontario personal injury lawyer. We offer a free consultation for those that have been injured in motorcycle accidents in Ontario. To learn more, or to schedule an appoitment, call Iacobelli Law Firm at 1-866-234-6093.
An early morning motorcycle crash in Richmond HIll Ontario, resulted in the death of a man in his 30's. This fatal motorcycle accident happened near Highway 7 and Leslie Street and reportedly involved another vehicle.
First and foremost, we would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the man who was killed in this fatal motorcycle accident in Richmond Hill, Ontario.
The police had the area closed in order to investigate the circumstances of this accident. More information is needed in order to determine who is at fault for this fatal Richmond Hill motorcycle accident. If the other vehicle involved is partially responsible for the crash, it could lead to a wrongful death claim on behalf of the family of the motorcycle rider. The family of the man who was tragically killed, may be able to recover for the loss of the support, services and companionship of their loved one.
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.
