Assisting Motorcycle Injury Victims in Ontario
As a Windsor motorcycle accident lawyer, Peter Curran has assisted motorcycle injury victims in various parts of Essex County, Huron County, and Bruce County.
Motorcycle accidents can be caused by a wide range of factors, such as bad weather, dangerous roadways, driver error and defective equipment. However, according to Ontario Provincial Police, in the majority of cases, motorcycle accidents are caused by the negligent actions of other drivers which include the following:
- Negligent or distracted driving
- Following too close
- Failure to yield
- Failure to leave sufficient space
- Side-swipe collisions
- Failure to share the road
- Failure to check blind spots
In accidents involving a motorcycle and a car, the motorcyclist is at a huge disadvantage because motorcycles do not offer the same protection and safety features as cars.
Experienced Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Unfortunately, there is a societal bias against motorcyclists in North America. This bias can often result in the belief that the motorcyclist is at fault for the accident, and leads to a reduced settlement offer from insurance companies. At Curran Law Firm we understand the tactics insurance companies use against accident victims, and especially victims of motorcycle accidents. Peter Curran gained this insight having spent many years working for insurance companies. As a skilled motorcycle accident lawyer, Peter and his team of legal professionals will work with you to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
Many accidents occur when a driver cuts off a motorcycle or forces the motorcyclist to make an unsafe move. In these situations, the driver can still be held responsible for any injuries suffered by the motorcyclist. Please see “Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents“.
