MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER TORONTO
Even though there aren’t as many motorcycle users compared with the number of cars nowadays, motorcycle accidents are still a regular occurrence. According to the latest Ontario Road Safety Annual Report, the total number of motorcycle-induced traffic accidents in 2018 was 1,326, from which 1,269 people were injured and 57 people tragically passed away.
The injuries that motorcycle accident victims obtain can vary since motorcycles don’t give the same amount of protection as cars do. The most common types of injuries involve head and brain injuries (including concussions), broken bones, spinal cord injuries, fractures, lacerations, abrasions and both physical and emotional scars.
If you or someone you love has been involved in a serious motorcycle accident, you should immediately seek legal guidance from a lawyer since you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering, your future medical treatment and more.
There are to available claims to obtain financial recovery from motorcycle accidents:
A tort claim is a lawsuit in which you can file to claim compensation for the injuries you have suffered in an accident due to a negligent or an at-fault driver. This compensation claim is wider than what you are entitled to from an insurance company.
ACCIDENT BENEFITS CLAIM
This option is available to you regardless of who’s at fault, they include up to $65,000 in Medical and Rehabilitation Benefits and Attendant Care Benefits and up to $400 per week in Income Replacement Benefits. If you are not working as a result of your accident, you may also qualify for a non-earner benefit of $185 per week.
There are also additional benefits that may be available to you if you have suffered a catastrophic injury or if you have purchased optional benefits through your insurer.
