We Are an Experienced Bike Accident Law Firm in Toronto

The roadways in Toronto can be particularly hazardous for cyclists and collisions between motor vehicles and bicycles often result in catastrophic injuries or death. The fact is that while bikes are afforded the same rights as cars by law, those rights are often disregarded by drivers creating unsafe conditions for cyclists. Unfortunately cyclists aren’t seen as a priority on the roads and are even viewed as nuisance by impatient drivers. In other cases cyclists are going unnoticed by drivers- resulting in 43% of cyclist’s deaths involving motor vehicles were hit from behind.

In addition to vehicles on the road, cyclists are more susceptible to accidents involving road hazards such as uneven edges, potholes, negligently installed or missing manhole covers and sewer grates, paving issues, inadequately marked construction lanes, or speed bumps.

I was in a bike accident, what now?

If you are involved in a bicycle accident these are the steps a lawyer in Toronto will advise you take:

Seek Medical Attention if Needed
Assess whether your injuries require medical attention and call 911 if immediate medical attention and treatment is required. If not, see a doctor as soon as possible to check for any hidden injuries.

Call the Police
It is important that you call the local Police to report the accident. They will advise whether you should wait at the scene for their arrival, or report to an accident Collision Reporting Centre.

Exchange Information
Exchange drivers license, car insurance, and vehicle information with the driver. Even if you are on a bike, you may claim Accident Benefits through your car insurance policy. If you do not have your own car insurance then you will claim benefits from the insurance company who insured the driver of the car that hit you.

Document What Happened
If you are able, take pictures of the scene, record the names and contact information of any witnesses and jot down notes about anything that may be relevant like weather conditions, or any road hazards.

Contact Your Insurance Company Within 7 Days
You have seven (7) days from the accident to contact your own car insurance company to make a claim. Do not delay, contact them as soon as you are able.

Contact an Experienced Toronto Bicycle Accident Law Firm

Bicycle accident claims can be complicated and time consuming. You have two (2) years from the date of the accident to file a claim, but the sooner you contact a lawyer in Toronto with experience handling bicycle accidents the better.

Why do I Need an Experienced Bicycle Accident Lawyer in Toronto

Many people mistakenly believe that the insurance company will compensate them for the cost of medical care and lost time from work. Unfortunately, this is not the case and the insurance companies do not always act in your best interest.  You need a lawyer who will fight and make both the insurance company and the person who caused the accident give you the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to.

How Much Compensation Can I Receive for my Toronto Bike Accident?

When you are injured in a bicycle accident you are entitled to damages to compensate you for your injuries and losses.  There are various types of damages which are intended to compensate you for different types of losses. Damages fall in two general categories; Economic Damages and Non-economic Damages.

Economic Damages
These are financial losses you have suffered and/or expenses you have incurred as a direct result of your bicycle accident. These include, loss of income, lost wages, medical expenses, and the cost of housekeeping services, or home care.

Non-Economic Damages
These are damages that compensate you for things like your pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of life expectancy, and loss of amenities. These are all evaluated on a case by case basis and you need the skill and experience of a law firm in Toronto that will fight for you to get the maximum amount in damages for your bike accident.

We understand that there is no amount of money that will return you to the life you had before the bicycle accident.  However, we will fight to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.
