According to The Ontario Ministry of Transportation, three (3) people are injured every day in motorcycle accidents in Ontario. The vulnerability of the driver combined with the high speeds amplifies the risk and severity of injuries in a motorcycle accident. Victims can lose their life, or be left to cope with traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, serious orthopaedic injuries and amputation.
A person injured in a motorcycle accident is entitled to receive accident benefits, regardless of who was at fault for the crash. In addition, they can sue an at-fault driver and perhaps others to receive compensation for their losses. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, compensation may be available through the insurer of the at-fault driver, in addition to statutory accident benefits payable immediately by your own insurer regardless of fault.
