Nepean, Grimsby and Timmins Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Today in Canada, motorcycle accidents are the cause of more injuries and fatalities than any other vehicle injuries on our roadways. Despite the advancements that have been made in motorcycle gear and helmets, the truth is that motorcyclists are far more exposed to injuries without that protective vehicle surrounding them. Add that to the fact that they are more difficult to see and have less traction with the road for stability and you have a potential recipe for disaster if you are sharing the road with a negligent driver.

Motorcycles Cause More Injuries

    Negligence Factors into Most Motorcycle Accidents

    Unfortunately, negligence is often involved in a motorcycle accident. At Barapp Law Firm and Associates, we have represented the legal rights of victims of motorcycle accidents in Nepean, Grimsby and Timmins and throughout Ontario for decades. We understand the trauma, the expense and the life-altering implications of a catastrophic motorcycle accident.

    Lack of Protection

    In a motorcycle accident, there is little protection against blunt force trauma for a motorcyclist during impact. This means that even the most minor of motorcycle accidents can result in

    • Traumatic brain injuries
    • Spinal cord injuries
    • Road rash
    • Fractures
    • Soft tissue injuries
    • Abrasions
    • Scarring
    • Loss of limbs
    • Paralysis
    • Fatality

    An Advocate for the Injured

    As the victim of an accident, you are suffering not only the physical trauma of the accident and the subsequent hospitalization and medical intervention but also the financial hardships that come with the expenses involved. Your ability to return to work may have been impacted. You may be faced with life-altering injuries and long-term health issues. You need a legal advocate to ensure that you are getting fairly compensated for your injuries and their related expenses.

    Don’t Rely on an Insurance Settlement

    Motorcycle injuries can have devastating consequences for a victim and their family. Insurance companies rarely fully consider the long-term consequences of a motorcycle accident. A victim typically does not get fairly compensated by insurance until the claim is fully investigated, researched and negotiated. Most injury victims only want to heal and get their lives back on track. Without a legal advocate, you could be accepting an insurance settlement that is grossly inadequate to fully cover your losses.
