A Motorcyclist Suffered Fatal Injuries in a Collision with a Car on County Road 56 near 10th Sideroad in Essa Township on May 4, 2013
A motorcycle crash in Essa Township south of Barrie Ontario, resulted in the death of a 27 year old man. This fatal motorcycle accident happened near County Road 56 and 10th Sideroad in Essa Township, and reportedly involved another car
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 Essa Township, Ontario.
The police were investigating the circumstances of this fatal motorcycle accident. More information is needed in order to determine who is at fault for this fatal Essa Township motorcycle accident. If the other car involved is partially responsible for the crash, it could lead to a wrongful death claim on behalf of the family of the motorcycle rider who tragically lost his life. The family of the man who was killed, may be able to receive compensation 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. While some people hold the misconception that motorcycle riders cause these accidents, the statistics more often reveal that many motorcycle crashes are caused by other drivers. Often, drivers of other cars are not paying enough attention and fail to see motorcycles. Fatal motorcycle accidents often occur when other vehicles turn or pull out across the path of an approaching motorcyclist.
Motorcycle accident claims are complex and require a lawyer with experience in this area. They are vigorously defended on liability. In fatal cases, the other insurance company for the other vehicle will often mobilize quickly in an effort to minimize and defeat wrongful death claims.

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.
