In 2011, The Ontario Road Safety Annual reports states that 21 bicyclists were killed, there were 113 major injuries and 2,179 were injured in motor vehicle accidents. Many of the people harmed in car-bike accidents are children.
Our lawyers provide effective legal advice and representation to those injured in cyclist accidents and to the family members of those who died in such accidents. We pursue maximum compensation for the full extent of our clients’ damages.
Cyclist accidents can result in catastrophic injuries, including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures and other serious orthopaedic injuries, internal injuries, abrasions (road rash) and lacerations.
Bike-vehicle accidents can be caused by distracted driving, speeding or drunk drivers. Aggressive drivers may try to run cyclists off the road or turn in front of them. Bikers are frequently injured when drivers of parked vehicles open a door in front of a cyclist or pull away from the curb and into an oncoming cyclist’s path. In addition to motor vehicle accidents, cyclists also frequently suffer injuries from dog attacks.
Those injured in cyclist accidents could be entitled to accident benefits. These benefits are meant to provide an immediate source of relief and recovery. This includes benefits such as partial (or total) income replacement benefits, attendant care benefits, supplemental medical and rehabilitation benefits, non-earner benefits, and funeral and death benefits. It is our top priority to ensure that you get the proper medical treatment and rehabilitation necessary to embark on a path to recovery and regain maximum functionality after the accident.
