Riding a motorcycle on Edmonton roads can be an extremely enjoyable experience especially during the summer. However, motorcycles do not protect riders from accidents.
When a motorcyclist falls off their bike and strikes the ground in a severe crash, they have a good chance of sustaining debilitating injuries, some of which might be permanent.
Even when cyclists wear sturdy helmets and other protective gear while riding, helmets can crack, leading to traumatic head and brain damage and other medical complications.
Motorcycle accidents can also affect your overall health, career, and quality of life.
An Edmonton motorcycle accident lawyer from MNH Injury Lawyers can help you fight for compensation to help you move toward recovery. You can seek compensation for your pain and suffering, income losses, and more.
Our experienced legal team can file a personal injury claim or lawsuit on your behalf, negotiate with insurance company adjusters for the at-fault driver’s insurance company, and help you pursue a favorable settlement.

How do you know if you qualify for compensation after a traffic accident, such as a motorcycle accident? An Edmonton Personal Injury Accident Lawyer at MNH Injury Lawyers can tell you for sure.
Were your motorcycle accident injuries so severe that you had to stay home until you recovered? Are your injuries permanent, preventing you from earning as much money or working as many hours as you once did? Do your injuries affect your ability to perform housekeeping and yard work? Will you need continuing care in the future?
Depending on the answers to these and other questions, you may recover compensation for monetary damages, including:
You might also be able to seek compensation for certain accident-related expenses, such as the cost of repairing your motorcycle.
Physical, emotional, and psychological damages are the basis for all your losses.
You can seek compensation for such physical and emotional injuries as:
In some cases, motorcycle accidents that result from others’ negligence are so serious that they lead to a cyclist’s untimely death. You can also seek compensation if a loved one passes away from their injuries due to someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior.
Damages in wrongful death cases include:
Motorcycle accidents in the Edmonton region can occur anywhere, from busy highways to rural country roads with less traffic.
Unfortunately, the City of Edmonton does have some dangerous traffic intersections where motorcycles tend to be present, including:
Motorcycle accidents at these intersections usually occur when drivers negligently fail to yield the right-of-way to a motorcyclist at the proper time. Highway 216 is another common location for motorcycle accidents in Edmonton.
If you suffered injuries in a motorcycle crash that occurred on one of these area roadways, you should retain experienced legal counsel in your case right away.
At MNH Injury Lawyers, our experienced legal team can help you pursue the compensation you deserve for your motorcycle accident injuries and other related losses. We can help you investigate your accident circumstances, negotiate a fair personal injury settlement, and, if necessary, litigate your case through the Alberta court system.
Motorcycle accidents in Edmonton frequently occur when people drive negligently. These accidents may happen at other times because of defective roadway conditions, such as deep potholes or cracks, which dislodge a cyclist from their motorcycle.
Common motorcycle accident causes in Edmonton include:
In addition to these traffic violations, some motorcycle accidents occur when drivers fail to observe the road. This type of driving is called distracted driving. Drivers often become distracted when they program a GPS, send a text message, adjust the volume on their radio, or turn their heads away from the road for any other reason while driving.
Finally, some motorcycle accidents result from DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol). Alcohol can significantly impair a person’s ability to drive safely and frequently causes blurred vision and other physical symptoms. It may also cause a driver to experience delayed reflexes, preventing them from hitting their brakes in time to avoid striking a motorcycle.
When other people drive carelessly and negligently, they may bring about several different types of motorcycle accidents, including:
At MNH Injury Lawyers, our team can meet with you promptly to discuss the circumstances of your motorcycle crash. If you are eligible to move forward with a claim, we can assist you with every step of the process, including settlement negotiations with insurance company representatives and courtroom litigation.
When others fail to drive carefully, serious motorcycle crashes and injuries may result. The injuries that a motorcycle accident victim suffers will depend upon several factors, including the speeds of the vehicles, the accident location, and whether or not the motorcyclist falls to the ground during the crash.
Some of the most common injuries that motorcycle accident victims in Edmonton suffer include:
Our team can help you handle the legal aspects of your claim so you can focus on getting the medical treatment you need and fully recovering from your accident-related injuries
Despite what they say in their advertisements, insurance companies are never advocating for your interests. Instead, they only want to keep as much of their money in-house as possible.
Insurance companies accomplish this goal by collecting premium payments from their insureds and lessening their payouts in personal injury cases as much as possible. Therefore, most insurance companies will look for any excuse in the book to deny a motorcycle accident claim, limit their exposure, or limit their monetary payout to an injured accident victim.
Fortunately, the experienced Edmonton motorcycle accident lawyers at MNH Injury Lawyers can assist. We can handle all communications with insurance company representatives on your behalf and highlight the strengths of your case while downplaying any weaknesses.
Moreover, if the insurance company does not offer you the fair monetary damages you deserve, we can pursue litigation in the court system on your behalf. If necessary, we can also resolve your case at a civil jury trial or binding arbitration hearing.
Following an Edmonton motorcycle accident, you can increase the likelihood of success. First, you should follow through on any recommended treatment regimen from your healthcare providers.
For example, you may need to undergo one or more medical procedures or attend regular physical therapy sessions to fully recover from your injuries. Seeking ongoing medical treatment shows the insurance company that your injuries are serious and increases the likelihood that adjusters will offer you fair monetary compensation to resolve your case.
Keep a journal in which you detail what transpires at your medical appointments and describe the pain and symptoms you experience daily. Similarly, you can begin to gather your medical treatment records, police reports, witness statements, and other documents and provide those documents to us after you complete your medical treatment.
Once your medical treatment is complete, we can file a claim for you and pursue the full monetary damages you need for your injuries.
