Fighting to Put the Cap on Injury Compensation Caps.
Driving a motorcycle may be a fun, freeing experience, but it can come at a cost. When compared to car accidents, motorcycle accidents in Edmonton tend to result in more severe injuries. Many motorcycle accidents end in serious or fatal injuries to the motorcyclist because the victim has less protection from blunt force trauma.
If you or one of your loved ones has been in a motorcycle accident and suffered injuries, you should contact a lawyer. McCourt Law Offices has experience representing motorcycle accident victims with care, concern and compassion. We can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Motorcycle accidents typically happen in one of two ways: the rider is thrown from their bike and onto the pavement, or the motorcyclist collides with a car or truck at rapid speeds. Without the protection automobiles provide, such accidents result in serious injuries. Some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries include:
Spinal cord injuries
Soft tissue sprains and strains
Any of these injuries could prevent you from working and earning an income as you normally would. Thus, you may be owed compensation from the person responsible for the accident. If you’re unsure of how to go about obtaining a settlement after a motorcycle accident in Edmonton, the team at McCourt Law Offices can guide you through the process.
In Alberta, drivers and passengers of motorcycles, mopeds, etc. must wear approved motorcycle helmets. If you were not wearing a helmet at the time of your motorcycle accident in Edmonton, your insurance company may view this as contributing to your injuries, which could reduce your settlement. However, it does not mean the accident is your fault.
Also , if you alone crashed your motorcycle, you may still have insurance benefits available. Some motorcycle insurance plans include accident benefits, which may cover you even if you caused your accident. As such, you may still entitled to to "no-fault" benefits.
Motorcycle accident victims are often left with serious injuries, a mass of medical bills and months or even years of rehabilitation expenses. Your own insurance company may cover some of your losses.
