Have you recently been injured in an accident while riding or a passenger on a motorcycle?
Significant injuries can result because of the impact with your motorcycle, the other vehicle, or striking the road pavement. Injuries can include fractures, spinal cord injuries, loss of use of arms and/or legs, head injuries, neck and back injuries.
Often times, drivers of cars and other large vehicles do not afford the respect to drivers of a motorcycle. Were you cut off by a car? Did the driver of the other vehicle not see you because you were on your motorcycle? Whatever the reason, we may be able to help. A motorcycle is a motor vehicle just like a car or truck. As an operator of that motorcycle or a passenger you have legal rights to consider if you have been injured.
If you have a valid policy of insurance with an automobile insurer in the Province of Ontario you have legal rights, whether you are at fault or not.
These rights can include the requirements for physical therapy treatments, payments of rehabilitation expenses, payments for loss of housekeeping capacity and also potentially for loss of income and non-earner benefits. If you are injured and not at fault for the accident, then in addition to the above benefits, you may be eligible for a claim to recover damages for your pain and suffering from your injuries, future income losses or loss of capacity to work in a particular field or occupation, and losses for future care costs and housekeeping needs.
