Motorcycle Accident FAQs

A motorcycle accident lawyer is a personal injury lawyer with significant experience representing people injured in motorcycle accidents. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, look for a qualified Alberta motorcycle accident lawyer who knows:

  • relevant Alberta laws and regulations
  • case law decisions that may affect your compensation
  • the insurance companies handling your case and how they handle claims
  • how to claim for all damages and maximize the compensation you receive from the insurance company.

Personal injury lawyers that regularly deal with motorcycle injury claims will know what to do if:

  • the vehicle driver claims the motorcyclist wasn’t visible or was speeding
  • experts are needed to analyze the evidence in police reports, eyewitness accounts, etc.
  • establishing fault is a challenge
  • insurance companies offer low (unfair) compensation.

In Alberta, the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • driver error (e.g. unsafe lane changes) on the part of the motorcycle operator and / or the driver of another vehicle
  • impairment (e.g. drugs or alcohol)
  • condition of the motorcycle or other vehicle (e.g. worn tires, non-functioning signal lights)
  • road conditions (e.g. potholes, loose gravel, mud)
  • weather conditions (e.g. visibility or slippery road conditions cause by rain or snow in Spring and Fall).
In Alberta, the most common causes of motorcycle accidents due to error by the motorcycle operator or the driver of another vehicle are:

  • run off the road
  • following too closely
  • improper turn
  • improper passing
  • left of the centre line
  • improper lane changes
  • traffic signal, uncontrolled intersection, and stop sign violations.

Male motorcycle operators under 25 and, in particular, 16-17 year old male operators are most likely to be involved in accidents.
The most common injuries from motorcycle accidents in Alberta are:
Motorcycle operators are also involved in a large number of fatal casualty accidents, which can result in wrongful death claims. In Alberta, 31 people were killed in motorcycle collisions in 2020. Joseph A. Nagy Injury Law has many years of experience dealing with all types of injuries caused by motorcycle accidents. For more information, see Alberta traffic collision statistics.

Witness evidence is particularly important in motorcycle accident cases. The driver who caused the collision usually claims that “the motorcyclist came out of nowhere.” Such statements imply that the motorcyclist was speeding. The reality may be that the at-fault driver simply did not see or hear the motorcycle.

If you are a motorcyclist, you already know you need to be cautious of other drivers on our highways. Drivers are used to seeing bigger vehicles and don’t notice motorcycles. In Alberta, motorbikes aren’t usually on the roads in winter. As a result, motorcycle collisions often spike when bikes reappear on our roads in May and June.

Over the course of my career, I have developed a careful questioning technique. Under my questioning, the at-fault party often admits under oath that they could not have known the motorcyclist’s speed at the time of the accident. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, you can call me and ask for a free consultation.

Aug 26th 2013, A motor vehicle accident a little west of Rocky Mountain House Alberta. Claimed the life of the women I was going to marry the following Christmas Day 2013 .The worst of my injuries was a broken heart from losing the love of my life.
Eventually after a few months I was discharged into the care of my sister who had come to live with me.Also home care came several times a week.
During this time it was suggested i perhaps find a lawyer. Someone mentioned one , Not knowing anything about lawyers said sure. Perhaps two days latter a lawyer showed up at my house. He did what I thought lawyers did and went away. About a year later I phoned this
lawyer to see how things were moving along.
He was extremely rude, Sarcastically answering my questions . Just being weird .. I'm thinking of how do I fire this guy ? Or can I ? I don't know how any of this works. I signed a piece of paper. Was that a contract?
Nevertheless I went looking for another lawyer . Didn't want anyone working out of there car . Wanted to see a big sign listing all the partners . That's when I found Mr Nagy
Mr Nagy a pleasant man . Offered me coffee and we sat down . I telling him my story. He took the case and he took care of firing the other lawyer
Between him and his staff. They never quit till It was over compiling a file over a foot tall.
Most importantly I was always greeted with a pleasant smile and happy to be working for you attitude. Every question I asked , be it on the phone or in person . Was carefully explained in such a manor that I understood at all times what was happening with my case. Causing me to learn to trust Mr Nagy and his staff.
I clearly remember him saying no that's not enough. Sending the insurance lawyers to renegotiate. I remember his saying. NO I want it all. We did get it all. A few days ago handed me a check for several hundred thousand dollars. It doesn't give me back the women I love.. But it does help me to live as normal as I can with my injuries Thanks Joe and Nicole and God bless you
