New Westminster Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycles are a big part of life for many New Westminster residents. While riders accept the risks associated with these vehicles, many dangerous collisions happen due to the negligence of another driver. Motorcycles are much smaller, and their limited visibility can play a role in a crash. In most cases, however, a motorist could have avoided a collision if they were keeping a proper lookout.

If you sustained injuries in New Westminster due to a motorcycle crash, you could have a viable negligence claim against the responsible party. Our Preszler team of New Westminster motorcycle accident lawyers could review your case and guide you on your best path to collecting monetary compensation. Call today to schedule a case evaluation with a personal injury lawyer.

Common injuries in a motorcycle crash

There are countless ways the human body can suffer damage during a motorcycle crash. These injuries often occur when a rider is thrown from the bike and skids across the pavement. However, injuries may also occur from a direct impact between a bike and a motor vehicle. Motorcycles do not offer any crash resistance, which often leads to severe injury for riders in an accident, and may include:

  • Road rash
  • Cuts
  • Bruises
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries, including concussions or hemorrhages
  • Neck injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Back injuries
  • Damaged tendons or ligament
  • Burns
  • Blindness
  • Scarring
  • Loss of a limb

Any of these injuries could result in significant medical treatment. New Westminster motorcycle accident lawyers can assist you in recovering compensation for these injuries from the responsible party.

When a rider is partially responsible

Most motorcycle crash cases result from the negligence of another motorist. However, in some cases, a rider could also be partially responsible. Partial responsibility will not prevent you from recovering compensation in your case, but it will reduce the amount of damages available to you.

Consider the following example: a motorcycle rider is travelling at a speed that is unsafe under the conditions. However, a motorist fails to see the rider and runs a stop sign, colliding with the motorcycle. Following an investigation, it is determined that the rider was 25 percent at fault for the accident. In that case, the rider would only recover 75 percent of the damages they establish at trial.

There is no fee unless we are successful

The idea of hiring a lawyer to handle your injury claim could be intimidating. Following a collision, your finances are likely already strained. Adding the additional cost of legal fees might be more than you can afford. We understand the financial toll a motorcycle accident can have, which is why we only recover a fee in your case if we are successful. If we fail to obtain damages on your behalf, you will never owe us anything.
