As a cycling and fitness enthusiast I know all too well how much a well-maintained bike can cost annually, especially if it is used as a main mode of transportation.
A common question is, “ In the event of a motor vehicle – cyclist accident can I claim the expense of my bike if it a complete write off?”
This was a topic question I was asked on CTV’s Ask The Expert. When it comes to bicycle claims it is a tricky area and your best bet is to contact an Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer. There are a lot of small details and fine print that a lawyer can sort through the average person does not have time for.
A good resource to start with is our Compensation After An Ottawa Bike Accident article. You can also read our article 5 Factors That Affect The Value Of Your Ontario Accident Case and our book Spinning Out Of Control.
If you are a cyclist and have been in an accident involving a motor vehicle you can contact Brenda Hollingsworth to have her help explain your rights and tell you if you have a claim.
