    Bicycle accidents are common in the Ottawa area.  When your cycling accident results in injury, let Auger Hollingsworth help you get the compensation you need.

    • Statutory Accident Benefits (also called SABS or ABs or no fault)–>  Regardless of who caused the accident, anyone involved in an Ontario accident with a motor vehicle is entitled to Statutory Accident Benefits.  There benefits include:
      • medical and rehabilitation funds
      • income replacement benefits
      • attendant care
      • clothing replacement
      • visitors expenses
      • mileage
      • and more.
    • Damages Claim (also called a tort claim) –> If you didn’t cause the accident, you may be entitled to bring a negligence claim against the driver who hit you and your bike.  In that claim, you can seek compensation for:
      • pain and suffering
      • loss of income (if your loss is more than what is included in the income replacement benefits)
      • housekeeping
      • excess medical compensation
      • and more.
