Motorcycle Accidents

Written by Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton Injury Lawyer

Edmonton Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Bikers are vulnerable to serious injuries in motorcycle accidents. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, I can help you. I am Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton personal injury lawyer. My clients live in central and northern Alberta. I specialize in injuries that are the result of motor vehicle accidents. I have handled many motorcycle accident cases.

I know the case law for motorcycle collision injuries, and I know whether the insurance company is offering you fair compensation.

Witness evidence in motorcycle collisions is crucial. The party at fault for the collision usually claims that “the motorcyclist came out of nowhere.” The implication is 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.

What Are the Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?

Motorcycles are often involved in collisions with motor vehicle because the at-fault driver did not see or hear the motorcycle. Drivers are used to seeing bigger vehicles and don’t notice motorcycles. Motorbikes aren’t usually on the roads in winter, and motorcycle collisions spike when they reappear on our roads in May and June.

Motorcyclists know they need to be cautious of other drivers on our highways. Ask anyone who drives both a motorcycle and a car about the difference in their experience.
