Like cyclists and pedestrians, motorcyclists are at a great risk of being injured in a motor vehicle collision because motorcycles lack the standard safety features of a car, such as airbags, seatbelts and the protection afforded from the body of a vehicle. Motorcyclists are even more vulnerable however because compared to a pedestrian or cyclist, a motorcycle collision can happen at a much greater speed.
Motorcycle accidents can result in catastrophic impairments such as the loss of limbs, brain damage, broken or fractured bones, paralysis and even death.
The law in Ontario provides compensation for anyone involved in a motorcycle accident, regardless of who was at fault. For catastrophically impaired victims, this can include one million dollars for medical and rehabilitation, one millions dollars for attendant care services, one hundred dollars each week for housekeeping expenses, benefits for income loss or caregiving and other benefits such as a death benefit.
