When the weather is right, nothing beats the freedom of enjoying Ontario’s beauty on the back of a motorcycle. Our last blog post on the topic of motorcycles offered some tips to enjoy Canada safely while riding a motorcycle. Now, we would like to emphasize the importance of strong representation should an accident occur.
Those who operate motorcycles are vulnerable to injury even when every precaution has been taken. Serious brain or spinal injuries are always a risk if an accident occurs. Under Ontario law, accident benefits are available through every insurance policy regardless of fault. This makes it possible to receive medical benefits as well as compensation for expenses and lost wages.
While this may seem like a simple process, you will probably benefit from the advice a personal injury lawyer can provide. A lawyer can explain how no-fault accident claims against an insurance company work while helping you get prepared for the process.
If you believe another driver caused your accident, you may want to file a tort claim against him or her. This is where guidance from a personal injury lawyer is crucial. You will need to know about statutory time limits and other requirements necessary to initiate a successful claim. Working with a lawyer makes the entire process easier on your end and also elevates your chances of finding success.
You have every right to enjoy your motorcycle and every right to take action when someone causes you harm. We urge you to read more about your motorcycle accident legal options in the pages of our Ontario-based website.
