Mississauga Motorcycle Accident Lawyer


In accordance with the province’s Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act, the operators of all motor vehicles must have mandatory insurance policies commensurate with the minimum coverage outlined in the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS). This law applies to the owners and/or operators of passenger vehicles as well as single-rider vehicles like motorcycles.

Since all motorcycle riders are required to carry mandatory insurance, if they are injured while riding their bikes, they should be able to submit a claim for no-fault accident benefits. Accident benefits provide injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions with financial support to help offset the costs they have incurred as a result of being injured. These no-fault benefits are usually made available regardless of the injured party’s culpability for the collision. That means that, even if a motorcycle rider’s own errors or wrongful actions on the road caused their collision to occur, they could be eligible to receive accident benefits from their insurer.

However, when a large commercial or passenger vehicle collides with a motorcycle, the results can be disastrous. Unlike the occupants of cars, SUVs, trucks, buses, or other large vehicles, motorcycle riders are almost entirely exposed to the dangers of the road. With no safety features built into their machines to protect them in the event of the crash and only wearable protective gear like helmets to keep them safe, motorcycle accident victims in Mississauga could lose their lives when struck by negligent drivers. Those who manage to survive traumatic collisions with another vehicle often sustain permanent, life-changing, catastrophic injuries.

Although injured motorcycle riders should be entitled to accident benefits from their insurance provider, in many scenarios, the benefits available to them might not be nearly enough to cover their total injury-related financial losses. This is especially true for motorcycle accident victims who have sustained catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic amputations, sensory losses, paralysis, and severe spinal cord injuries (SCIs). The amount of accident benefits offered to injured motorcyclists could be even less than what they deserve because of their insurance provider’s inherent prejudice against the operators of motorcycles.

However, motorcycle riders who were injured in collisions caused by negligent drivers might be eligible to pursue civil action against the at-fault motorist in order to recover the compensation they deserve. In the context of motor vehicle collisions, negligence refers to a driver’s failure to fulfill the duty of care they owe to other drivers in accordance with the province’s Highway Traffic Act. A driver might be considered negligent if their violation of a traffic law results in an injury-causing collision. Common examples of driver negligence that often lead to injury-causing motorcycle accidents in Mississauga include:

  • Speeding
  • Changing lanes without signaling 
  • Texting while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • Street racing / stunt driving
  • And more
