Popular Motorcycle Designs
In an effort to appeal to many different riders, over the years bike designers and engineers have provided a variety of models that have proven to be popular among the motorcycle community.
Some of these designs include:
- Sport Bikes (Kawasaki Ninja, Suzuki GSX, Yamaha YZF)
- Cruisers (Indian, Harley Davidson)
- Off Road (motocross, enduro, trial)
- Touring (Ducati ST4, BMW K 1200)
- Chopper (custom designer)
- Scooters (Vespa, Lambretta)
However, it's important to note that most motorcycles offer their riders very little in the form of protection from other vehicles and the elements.
Frequent Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists are automatically placed at risk when the get on their bikes for a ride almost anywhere in Canada. Not only is the rider given minimal protection while operating their bike, but they are also incredibly difficult for other motorists on the roadways to see. The combination of a vulnerable rider with an unaware motorist can be fatal.
While a wide variety of factors typically contribute to a motorcycle accident, the following are the most common causes:
- Failure to see a motorcyclist in traffic
- Poor weather conditions
- Driver distraction
- Inexperienced riders
- Vehicle malfunction
- Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
- Defects in the roadway
- Failure to yield to the right-of-way of a motorcyclist
Sadly, motorcycle accidents often have far-reaching consequences for every person involved in the crash. From property damages to bodily injuries, the accident victims are often entitled to compensation from the at-fault party in the collision.

We offer 100% FREE case reviews to help determine if an injury victim has grounds to file a claim and we work on a contingency basis, which means that we only charge for our fees and services if we obtain a settlement of verdict for your case.
Motorcycle Crash Injuries
Both long term and short term injuries often result from motorcycle collisions. As stated earlier, motorcyclists are given minimal protection while operating their bikes. There is a universal helmet law throughout all 10 provinces and all three territories in Canada. As such, all motorcycle riders are required to wear a helmet regardless of their speed, age, or any other factors.
Riders may suffer from physical and mental injuries that may alter their lives permanently, especially those who travel without wearing additional protective gear such as jackets, boots, and gloves.
The following are the most commonly suffered injuries following a motorcycle accident:
- Post-concussive syndrome
- Nerve damage
- Post-traumatic stress
- Road rash
- Traumatic brain injury
- Wrongful death
Many of these motorcycle injuries will require extensive healing times, some of which will remain as permanent injuries. Long-term care and out-patient treatment is often required for the accident victims to regain bodily functions that were compromised in the crash. In these situations, medical bills and expenses often become astronomical. As such, it is essential to speak to a skilled Windsor motorcycle accident lawyer to learn more about your options and potential compensation.
