To safely ride a motorcycle, a person needs to exercise an abundance of caution at all times. Skill comes with experience, and experienced motorcycle riders can all appreciate that alertness and conscientiousness about safety are as important as talent when it comes to operating a dangerous, high-speed vehicle.
Unfortunately, even the most safety-conscious motorcycle rider is vulnerable to the wrongful actions of a negligent driver. When a motorcyclist encounters a dangerous driver on the roads and highways in and around Edmonton, the results can be deadly.
In recent years, there has been an upswing in fatal motorcycle collisions throughout the province. Drivers who are unaware of how to properly share the road or who engage in negligent conduct behind the wheel of their passenger vehicles could be responsible for causing a tragic, deadly collision.
Due to their relative lack of protection from the dangers of the road, motorcycle riders who are fortunate enough to survive a close encounter with a negligent driver often sustain severe, life-altering injuries. Readjusting to life after sustaining catastrophic, accident-related injuries can be a long, emotionally challenging, physically painful, and expensive journey.
Even though anyone who was injured in a motor vehicle accident – regardless of fault – should be entitled to Section B benefits to offset the costs of certain injury-related expenses, because of the severity often associated with injuries sustained in Edmonton motorcycle accidents, this form of insurance coverage is rarely sufficient to replace an injured accident victim’s total financial losses. On top of that, many insurers display an outward, unwarranted bias against motorcycle riders. They may find reasons to delay or withhold benefits payments from deserving claimants, or deny their claims altogether.

Depending on the severity of their injuries and the impacts they have had on a motorcycle accident survivor’s overall quality of life, these damages might be economic or non-economic in nature, and might include:
