Toronto Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Helping Passengers
Fighting for the rights of the injured in the Greater Toronto Area
When there’s a motorcycle accident, motorcyclists can suffer serious injuries. Their passenger can also be seriously hurt. When negligence was to blame for the accident, motorcycle passengers deserve financial compensation. The experienced motorcycle accident lawyers at Smitiuch Injury Law fight for their rights.
Both motorcyclists and their passengers have very little protection when they ride. They are required to wear helmets, and some wear leather or denim, leather gloves and motorcycle boots. Unlike people in cars, there are no steel frames, airbags or seatbelts to protect them.
A crash can result in serious injuries for passengers. These can include head injuries, road rash, muscle damage, biker’s arm (nerve damage), broken bones and back injuries. Passengers may need surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy and multiple follow-up appointments with doctors. Medical expenses can add up quickly.
Toronto lawyers who hold negligent parties accountable
Our experienced motorcycle accident lawyers hold negligent parties accountable to help you recover the compensation you deserve. Negligent parties may include the driver of a car who caused the accident. The motorcyclist you were traveling with could also be a negligent party. Filing a suit does not get that person is in trouble. It just puts pressure on the insurance company to meet their responsibilities.
We investigate your motorcycle crash to find out what really happened. The driver or motorcyclist may have been speeding, operating recklessly, distracted or driving under the influence of alcohol. Our legal team gathers evidence. We also review police reports and medical records and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.
Insurance companies use many different tactics to try to pay you as little as possible after an accident. We know all of them. Our lawyers build strong cases that insurance companies have to take seriously.
