Motorcycle Accidents in Calgary & Edmonton
Motorcycle accidents in Alberta account for significant injuries on our roads and highways. Traffic accident statistics show that a disproportionately high number of catastrophic injuries, such as brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and death are sustained by motorcyclists. These figures are especially tragic considering that a significant number of motorcycle accidents are caused when automobile operators are not paying attention and simply fail to recognize the presence of the motorcyclists.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Alberta
Although many members of the public believe that motorcycle riders are responsible for accidents, studies have regularly revealed that most motorcycle crash injuries are caused by the negligence of the other vehicle driver. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in Alberta include the following:
- vehicle turning left across the path of an oncoming motorcycle;
- vehicle changing lanes and sideswiping or cutting-off the motorcycle;
- vehicle drivers fail to see the motorcycle; and
- speeding by the vehicle driver and/or motorcycle.
