Legal Complications Surrounding Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
Bicyclists and pedestrians can get compensation for their injuries even if, at the time of the accident, they were in violation of a Highway Traffic Act (HTA) provision. For example, cyclists who ride on a sidewalk or in a crosswalk and receive injuries as a result of a collision with a car may still receive compensation, even though riding on a sidewalk or in a crosswalk can be an offence under the HTA or local by-law.
In Ontario, there is a reverse onus on drivers who hit pedestrians, which means it is easier to hold the at-fault drivers responsible for the accident. In addition, the law in Ontario makes no-fault accident benefits available to cyclists and pedestrians even if they do not have their own insurance.
