Claim Compensation for Bicycle Accidents
Motor vehicles on the roadway have an obligation to yield or give space to cyclists on the road, or in other words, must share the road. It is clear that cyclists are at significant risk of injury if they are in a collision with a motor vehicle. As is the case with motor vehicle accidents, accident benefits are provided to cyclists regardless if they are at fault in the bicycle accident or not.
The accident benefits may provide immediate assistance to the cyclist just as they would in a standard car accident. The bicycle accident lawyers at Bernstein Law Group will help you secure the compensation you need to recover from your accident.
What You Can Do When in a Bicycle Accident
Despite the fact that cities have invested in bicycle lanes in many areas, scores of accidents happen in the area and all over, every year. Often times other drivers on the road simply don’t see cyclists or drive in such a way that is risky to cyclists.
There are several rules of the road that are helpful in advocating bicycle accident claims. For instance, the Highway Traffic Act states that when loss or damages are sustained by any person by reason of a motor vehicle on a highway, the onus of proof that the loss or damage did not arise through the negligence or misconduct of the owner, driver, lessee or operator of the motor vehicle will be up to the driver of the vehicle to prove he or she was not at fault.
In other words, the onus is on the driver of the vehicle to disprove negligence rather than the onus on the bicyclist to prove fault.
