Many people ride their bikes in the city to go to work, get around town or simply to enjoy a day out with friends or family. This is not only a great way to get exercise but it is also a way to ensure that we keep our environment clean. However, bike riding can come at a cost when injured in an automobile accident.
Cyclists can sustain injury when riding by being hit by a car or when someone opens a car door without looking. These injuries can lead to devastating injuries. These types of claims require a lawyer who has experience and compassion to assist those injured in such accidents. Our office ensures that all steps are taken to obtain all benefits the cyclist is entitled to receive and to help negotiate the legal system.
It is important to note that cyclists should wear appropriate protective gear when riding and to also obey the rules of the road. In Ontario, failure to abide by these rules or to wear protective gear could reduce your entitlement to damages. In such cases, it is important for you to consult a lawyer to ensure that such issues are dealt with immediately.
