Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Calgary, Lethbridge, and Grande Prairie
Motorcyclists are proponents of the open road in its most freeing form. However, motorcycle statistics paint a grim consequence of that pursuit of freedom. Last year, in Alberta alone, motorcyclists suffered proportionately far more fatalities than their automobile driving counterparts. Injuries sustained while driving a motorcycle are far more damaging due to the inherent nature of the motorcycle. Relying on two wheels and continuous balance, with very little tire traction with the road, motorcycles offer little in the way of protection when involved in an accident with another vehicle.

Inherent Risks of Motorcycles
A motorcycle can be difficult to see by other drivers. Far smaller than a car, a motorcycle is easily obscured by blind spots in mirrors and other traffic. Drivers on the road today are often distracted and operating a vehicle demands attention, especially when sharing the road with motorcycles. Despite regulations and safety equipment, when a motorcycle is involved in an accident, there is very little protection from injury. Although motorcyclists are required to wear helmets, brain injuries are still one of the most common injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. The operator of a motorcycle is far more likely to sustain serious injuries and fatalities when involved in a collision with another vehicle. Motorcycle accident injuries are frequently life altering:
Broken bones and severe fractures
Concussions and brain injuries
Spinal cord injuries
Loss of limbs
Road rash and severe burns
