Recovering Compensation After a Bicycle Accident

In Ontario, there is something called the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund, which is a government institution that deals with circumstances where there is no insurance. An injured person can apply to the fund to get coverage for these medical benefits not covered under OHIP after a Toronto bicycle accident.

To learn more about options for financial recovery that might be available to you, contact our Toronto bicycle accident lawyers.

Insurance Benefits

The health insurance benefits available after a bicycle accident in Toronto are pretty self-evident in terms of the types of medical treatment that are available to the individual but is also important if a person cannot work. Under an individual’s motor vehicle insurance policy, the insurance company can provide up to $400 a week for income replacement benefit.

When involved in a bicycle accident, there are no factors that are not applicable in Ontario if an individual is a cyclist.  If a person is a driver of the vehicle that hits the cyclist, then the person’s insurance rates are very likely going to increase. A person’s insurance rates are not going to be affected if a person had a bicycle accident in Toronto.

Sick Leave

Insurance companies exist to make money. The only way they make money is by potentially limiting their exposure to these types of cases, even though the person’s doctor says that they cannot work.

The insurance companies will very often send a person to an insurance doctor who will claim that they can work and that the injuries are minimal. If that occurs, then the insurer may cut the person off from insurance benefits after their Toronto bicycle accident.


Under certain circumstances, health insurance companies may require people to reimburse them for paid medical expenses if the person receives a bike accident settlement.

There is something called a subrogated claim in Toronto. Depending on the wording of an individual’s benefits policy, if a person has gone through their work insurance policy for treatments or some sort of disability payment, the insurance company may require them to repay out of the proceeds of the settlement of the lawsuit. That is a contractual obligation that may be found in extended health care benefits.
