There are reports that an Orangeville couple were seriously injured when their motorcycle was hit head on by a an SUV in California. According to reports the driver of the other vehicle was charged with driving while impaired.

Cross border accidents, in which Canadians are injured in motor vehicle accidents while visiting the United States are, unfortunately, quite common. Canadians travel to the United States frequently, for vacations, business and countless other reasons. It is especially difficult to deal with a serious accident when you are far away from home.
When Canadians are seriously injured in an accident in the United States, it is important to understand your insurance coverage. Medical bills in the United States can be expensive. Often, the other vehicle will have little, or sometimes, no insurance available. Fortunately, Canadians will often be able to access insurance benefits through their own insurance company, even for car accidents that occurred in the United States. In addition to obtaining accident benefits or disability insurance payments from your Canadian insurer, you may also be able to claim against the insurance company for the other vehicle/driver in the United States.
If you are an Ontario resident, and were injured in a motorcycle accident in the United States, there is a chance that the at fault party may have insufficient insurance coverage. That is, the other driver's insurance limits may not be sufficient to pay for your claim or medical bills. Many places in the United States have lower minimum insurance requirements for drivers than Ontario. In those situations, you may be able to advance a claim in Ontario, Canada for the uninsured and underinsured benefits that form part of your Ontario motor vehicle insurance policy.
Cross border accident and personal injury cases can be complex and you should not delay in consulting a Ontario personal injury lawyer to make sure your rights are fully protected.
