Cycling is an extremely popular activity in Toronto; many people use biking as their source of daily physical activity, to commute to work on weekdays or for recreational riding on weekends. However, biking in Toronto and other Ontario cities can be dangerous and can often lead to serious accidents and personal injury. Bicycle accidents carry a great risk of someone being critically injured or even killed.
Cycling is becoming a more frequent means of travel in Ontario. As such, bicyclists are becoming more integrated with traffic flow and must adhere to the rules of the road. Hundreds of bicycle accidents are reported each year, as cyclists deal with high traffic volume and dangers unique to them. These dangers include direct contact with motor vehicles, exposure to the elements, poor road conditions and the risk of dooring (colliding with an open car door).
If you are involved in an accident with another vehicle, you are probably eligible to receive accident benefits, regardless of your insurnace. Speak to a bicycle accident injury lawyer at Pace Law Firm immediately and we will protect your right to receive compensation for medical expenses, attendant care, loss of income and more.
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
If someone other than the cyclist is wholly or partially responsible for a bicycle accident, cyclists are eligible to seek compensation for damages — such as pain and suffering, medical costs, loss of income and loss of enjoyment of life — against the party responsible. This type of legal action is referred to as a tort claim. Unsure whether or not you’re eligible to file a tort claim? Contact a Pace Law Firm bicycle accident lawyer in Toronto to learn about your rights and legal options or to request a free consultation.
You may also be entitled to STATUTORY ACCIDENT BENEFITS
