Vancouver ICBC Claim Lawyers MacLean and MacLean

There is something thrilling about riding a motorcycle. The two wheeled machine gives many who ride them an exhilarating feeling on the road. Most motorcycles can accelerate quicker than cars, and this acceleration feels much faster on two wheels as apposed to an enclosed vehicle, giving quite the adrenaline rush for riders. The Best Motorcycle Accident Lawyer gets the passion you have for riding but we want you to stay safe.

The physical experience of smelling the road and feeling the wind is a special experience. Finding parking for a motorcycle is much easier than a car. Motorcycles also have economical advantages. The average motorcycle costs much less, insurance is cheap, and the depreciation value of motorcycles is low.

 

Riding A Motorcycle Requires Skill And Vigilance Warn Best Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Riding a motorcycle can be quite the thrill, however it can also be quite difficult. There is much more involved to riding a motorcycle than driving a car. Surrey motorcyclists need to be able to control their acceleration, braking, traction, and leaning angles all at once. Slamming on the brakes in a motorcycle can result in a Surrey motorcycle accident such as skidding out or flipping overtop of the motorcycle. Even confident, experienced, Surrey motorcycle riders are involved in Surrey ICBC motor cycle accidents.

One of the biggest downfalls of riding a motorcycle is safety. Riding a motorcycle on the road can be dangerous. Motorcycles lack the safety and protection of an enclosed vehicle and many Surrey motorcycle accidents lead to catastrophic injuries. Some of the many dangers motorcyclists face include oncoming traffic, cars opening doors, driving with too much speed around a corner, hazards on the road such as potholes, and sudden stops on the road all result in dangerous situations for Surrey motorcyclists. If you have been involved in a Surrey motorcycle accident it is critical to contact a Surrey motorcycle injury lawyer at MacLean Personal Injury immediately. You want to hire the Best Motorcycle Accident Lawyer immediately after an accident to obtain the best result. Delay in hiring the best Best Motorcycle Accident Lawyer can cost you and your family thousands if not millions of dollars.

In the case Azam v. Bilayathe plaintiff was involved in two motorcycle collisions where fault was admitted in both. The first motorcycle accident left the plaintiff with a broken shoulder and soft tissue injuries, which happened to exacerbate these injuries. The courts awarded the plaintiff $85,000 in non-pecuinary damages stating the following:

[1]             Shameema Azam was involved in two motorcycle accidents, one on September 11, 2009, and the other on April 25, 2010. At the time of both accidents, Ms. Azam was a passenger, and her boyfriend, the defendant Hans-Henrik Jensen, was driving. Ms. Azam commenced two actions, one against Jesus Bilaya and Mr. Jensen seeking damages for the injuries she sustained in the September 2009 accident. Ms. Azam has commenced a second action against Mr. Jensen for injuries she sustained in the April 2010 accident. In the second action, Ms. Azam also claims damages for injuries she sustained when Mr. Jensen physically assaulted her on different occasions. The actions were heard at the same time.

[110]     It is clear that Ms. Azam was injured in both motor vehicle accidents. In the first accident, she suffered a broken shoulder and a neck and back injury. In the second accident, she suffered a broken wrist, injury to her knees and an exacerbation of her pre-existing spine condition.

[111]     I accept she does have chronic pain in her back which is exacerbated by activity; however, I do not accept Ms. Azam’s evidence regarding the impact of her injuries. I did not find Ms. Azam a particularly credible witness, and there is evidence that she is able to function at a higher level than she testified to.

[126]     Having considered the extent of the injuries, the fact that she is still having chronic pain after the accident which flares up from time to time, the guarded prognosis for full recovery, as well as the authorities I was provided, I am of the view that the appropriate award for non-pecuniary damages would be $100,000, if the accidents were the only cause of Ms. Azam’s ongoing symptoms.

[127]     However, Ms. Azam must be put back in the position she would have been in if the two motor vehicle accidents had not occurred. The evidence establishes that Ms. Azam suffered from a pre-existing symptomatic spine condition which had caused her periodic back pain in the 10 years prior to the first accident. Although it was not symptomatic right before the first accident, is reasonable to infer Ms. Azam would likely continue to suffer from periodic back pain, regardless of the accidents. Having taken that into consideration, I am of the view that the appropriate award for non-pecuniary damages is $85,000.
