Bike Accident FAQs

🚲I was hit by a car on my bike and need physiotherapy.  What do I do?

If you were injured while riding a bicycle and a motor vehicle was involved, you are entitled to apply for statutory accident benefits.  These benefits are available to you regardless of who is at fault for the accident.  Statutory accident benefits including funding for medical and rehabilitation costs, such as physiotherapy.  Our firm can help you get set up on accident benefits so that you can access the funding.

🚲How long will my bicycle accident case take to resolve?

Many different factors determine how long a case will take to settle.  If the motor vehicle was clearly at fault, we may be able to discuss settlement as soon as your injuries are stable and we know what, if any, loss of income you suffered.  In other cases, where your injuries are more complicated or more serious, we may not be able to resolve the case for several years.  Similarly, if you are unable to return to work due to your injuries, it may take more time to determine if you will ever be able to work and if so, in what capacity.  Your case can also take more time if we have to prove that the motor vehicle was a fault because there is disagreement over how the accident happened.  Our firm will take the time to get your settlement right.  And, if the settlement offers are not fair, we will take your case to trial.

🚲I was not wearing a helmet, can I still seek compensation for my bicycle accident?

Yes.  Just because you were not wearing a helmet, does not mean that you lose your right to compensation.  This is especially true if your injuries were not head injuries.  For example, the lack of a helmet will have no impact on a claim for a broken leg.  Even if you did suffer a head injury, the driver of the motor vehicle would have to prove that the helmet would have made a difference to your injury.  That is not an easy thing to prove.  Our injury law firm regularly represents injured cyclists who were not wearing helmets and we secure excellent settlements for them.
