When it comes to motorcycle accidents in Nova Scotia, we have seen bikers suffering more devastating and deadly accidents than ever over the last few years. Even with better safety gear and helmet technology, we are seeing motorcycle crashes become more commonplace and more severe.
The Vulnerability of the Biker
As experienced motorcycle accident lawyers, we understand that a biker is far more vulnerable on the roads than drivers of motor vehicles. That vulnerability means that they are far more likely to sustain injuries and fatalities including life-changing injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, and even death.
In fact, according to the Canadian Medical Association, accidents involving motorcycles cause three times the injuries, six times the medical expenditures, and five times the fatalities than their motor vehicle counterparts.
Common Contributing Factors

Despite our mandatory helmet laws and focus on operator training, motorcycle accident injuries happen far too frequently.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. With our team of legal experts on your side, we protect your legal rights and strive for the greatest possible financial compensation for you under the law.
What Happens if You Are Denied by Insurance?
Unfortunately, when it comes to bikers, the insurance industry immediately assumes that the biker has driven recklessly. We know that this is a common perception — and, most of the time, simply not true.
