Ontario Lawyer Discusses Motorcycle Accident Injury Claims:Toronto and York Region Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
With the beautiful weather we have been having in Toronto and the GTA, it is no wonder that riders are taking to the road by motorcycle. This long weekend promises more good weather, and should be a great time to get out and ride your motorcycle. Although I sold my motorcycle a few years ago, I can still appreciate the pleasure of going out for a ride on our province's scenic roads, and I'm sure that I'll get another motorcycle one of these days.
Unfortunately, every year many motorcyclists in Ontario are seriously injured in motorcycle crashes. Although some people hold the belief that motorcycle riders cause these accidents, the statistics more often reveal that most motorcycle crashes are caused by other drivers. Very often, drivers simply fail to see motorcyclists. Many motorcycle riders attempt to increase awareness of their presence by wearing reflective gear, or adding loud pipes to their motorcycle. We all have to be aware of motorcycles sharing the roads and we should give them plenty of space. This means, use extra caution and look before changing lanes and making turns.
When an injury does occur, a motorcycle rider and their family may be entitled to claim for damages and losses under Ontario law. Motorcycle accidents are unique and require a personal injury lawyer with experience in order to successfully prove that the other vehicle was at fault. A motorcycle rider may recover damages and losses even if they were at fault for the accident.
In addition to my interest in motorcycles, I have also obtained a lot of experience in litigating motorcycle accident claims. Before returning to Ontario, I practiced personal injury law in South Florida, a haven for motorcycle enthusiasts. I was involved in litigating many serious motorcycle collisions. Sadly, most of these cases involved catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Through my experience, I have also had the opportunity to work with some of the world's leading experts on motorcycle safety, including authors of the famous Hurt Report. I bring this experience and commitment to every motorcycle accident claim.

Car Accident Lawyer for York Region and Toronto Discusses Insurance Company Doctors and Independent Medical Exam
Very often, following a serious injury accident in Ontario, the insurance company will require an injured person to submit to a medical examination with a doctor selected by the insurance company. In most instances, the injured person will be required to attend this examination, which is sometimes referred to as an Independent Medical Examination or IME. The phrase is misleading, as there is nothing independent about the examination. The doctor is being paid for his opinion by the insurance company. Some of these doctors frequently perform assessments on behalf of insurance companies. While many physicians that perform insurance medical assessments are fair and reasonable, there are some that will look for every reason to minimize or undermine your claim.
