This past Saturday, March 23rd, was Bikers Down Society’s annual dance at Monte’s Showbar Grill in Dartmouth. It was an excellent “feel good” social and fundraising event which Lenehan Musgrave LLP was happy to support, and which a few members of our spirited personal injury legal team enjoyed attending.
Bikers Down Society is a not for profit organization established by Nova Scotian motorcycle enthusiasts to provide assistance to other Nova Scotian motorcycle enthusiasts, as well their passengers, who have been injured in collisions, along with injured persons’ families.
Bikers Down Society’s first goal is to try to prevent motorcycle accidents from happening through education and awareness. All too often drivers in other motor vehicles say they did not see the motorcyclist before a collision occurred. Bikers Down Society encourages all drivers to take responsibility for their safety and the safety of those they share the road with, espousing the motto “Look Twice, Save a Life”.
Unfortunately when motorcycle accidents happen they often cause serious injuries, and carry financial consequences for the injured motorcyclist and their family. Through charitable donations, Bikers Down Society aims to provide financial support to injured motorcyclists who have lost income. Where Bikers Down Society insists on responsible driving, they reserve the right to deny assistance if a collision was the result of the motorcyclist being intoxicated.
Lenehan Musgrave LLP is proud to be one of Bikers Down Society’s sponsors, and a provider of legal support. We believe the organization provides an excellent service to injured accident victims and their families, which corresponds well with our personal injury team’s objectives.
We are grateful for the opportunity to continue supporting and working with Bikers Down Society. Bikers Down Society’s next fundraising event is the Ride with Angels Memorial Ride on Sunday June 16, 2019, beginning at 11:30 a.m., and meeting at Riding in Style (562 Sackville Drive) before kickstands up at 1:00 p.m. Bikers Down Society’s website is: https://bikersdown.com/
