Motorcycle Accidents

Most motorcyclists in British Columbia are safety conscious. They drive carefully, wear a helmet and wear protective clothing when they are on the road. They understand that they are particularly vulnerable to injury if they collide with a motor vehicle.

Motorcycle accidents are often caused when vehicle drivers do not see the motorcycle and either turn directly into its path or collide with it. Sometimes motorcyclists react quickly enough to avoid the vehicle but swerve into another vehicle or object. At other times, motorcycle accidents are caused by hazardous road conditions such as potholes, gravel on the road or slick surfaces.

When a motorcycle and a vehicle collide, the motorcyclist is often seriously injured. Brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, back injuries, neck injuries, broken bones and internal injuries are common. In addition to the complex medical issues, the motorcyclist may be under financial stress because he or she cannot return to work.
