What are common causes of motorcycle accidents?
Motorcycles are often involved in collisions with motor vehicles because the at-fault driver did not see or hear the motorcycle. Drivers are used to seeing bigger vehicles and don’t notice motorcycles. In Edmonton, motorbikes aren’t usually on the roads in winter. As a result, motorcycle collisions often spike when they reappear on our roads in May and June.
If you are a motorcyclist, you know you need to be cautious of other drivers on our highways. Anyone who drives both a motorcycle and a car knows the difference in their experience.
Why is witness testimony important in motorcycle accident cases?
Witness evidence in motorcycle collisions is crucial. The party who is at fault for the collision usually claims that “the motorcyclist came out of nowhere.” Such statement imply that the motorcyclist was speeding.
Over the course of my career, I have developed a careful questioning technique that often gets the at-fault party to admit, under oath, that he could not have known what speed the motorcyclist was travelling.
