Motorcycle riders are often portrayed in the media as being reckless, carefree, rule-breakers. In reality, though, motorcycle riders are keenly aware of the dangers of the road and exercise extreme caution while operating their vehicle.
Due to their relative lack of safety equipment, motorcycle riders are among the most vulnerable road-users. With only a helmet and other forms of wearable safety gear to protect them in the event of a collision, motorcycle riders can easily lose their lives or sustain severe, life-altering injuries after being involved in an accident caused by a negligent driver.
In accordance with the Traffic Safety Act, anyone who operates a motor vehicle throughout the province is required to do so in consideration of the safety of all other road-users, including motorcyclists. Failing to do so by violating any of the rules of the road could be considered negligence.
The recent upswing in fatal motorcycle collisions throughout the province is indicative of the fact that driver negligence is a pervasive problem that is only continuing to worsen. When the operators of passenger vehicles disobey the rules of the road, the lives of innocent, vulnerable motorcycle riders could be lost in horrific, senseless accidents.
A driver’s negligence could also cause an accident in which a motorcycle rider sustains injuries varying in severity from moderate to catastrophic. And, depending on how serious their injuries are and how substantially they impact a motorcyclist’s overall quality of life, in addition to suffering physically and emotionally, injured motorcycle accident survivors could face significant financial losses.
