Any cyclist who gets hurt needs to understand their rights and know where they can find help. Ontario has a complicated insurance system and getting the best lawyer you can is crucial. If you are a cyclist involved in an accident you may be able to sue the driver of the car or truck that hit you. You may also make a claim for what are known as no-fault benefits.
