Ottawa Bicycle Accidents

When a cyclist is in an accident involving motor vehicles or another cyclist, it can result in very serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones and others. 

Any cyclist who has suffered severe injuries needs to understand their rights and know where they can find help. Ontario’s insurance system under the Ontario Insurance Act is complicated, which is why the guidance of an experienced Ottawa bicycle accident lawyer is so important. 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” accident benefits. If you are cyclist involved in an accident with another cyclist, you may be able to obtain compensation from the other cyclist’s home insurance liability coverage and coverage for certain medical expenses.  

Bicycle accident cases can be complicated and, as with other types of accidents, accident reconstruction and engineering evidence is often needed to show a judge or jury what happened and to explain why it happened. A picture is worth a thousand words, and a video can be worth five thousand:
