Common Bicycle Accidents

Cyclists are among the most vulnerable people on Ontario’s roads. Whereas motorists are protected by sophisticated safety features, cyclists are often at the mercy of fellow road-users and road conditions. As a result, motor vehicle accidents involving cyclists often result in serious or life-changing injuries.

Common bicycle accident causes include:

  • Obstructions and debris on roads or in bike lanes
  • Poor weather conditions including slippery roads
  • ‘Dooring’ by stationary vehicles
  • Aggressive or careless driving by motorists or cyclists
  • Poor road conditions
  • Road conditions obscured by darkness
  • Distracted, negligent driving by motorists or cyclists
  • ‘Left-hook’ and ‘right-hook’ accidents at intersections

While motorists are eligible for accident benefits for all injuries, regardless of who is at fault, most cyclists are not covered by insurance and thus cannot pursue no-fault benefits. However, when another person or entity is responsible for the cyclist’s injuries, the cyclist may be able to pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit, or from the at-fault party’s insurance provider. If an impaired or distracted motorist hits a cyclist, for example, the cyclist is likely to be able to seek compensation. In certain cases, a cyclist may be able to bring a claim against a city or municipality, as well.

You Are Entitled to Compensation

When a cyclist is injured due to the negligence, error, or malicious intent of another party, they are entitled to compensation for the damages they have suffered. A bicycle accident lawyer Toronto can help you access this compensation by ensuring that your pain, suffering, and ongoing damages are acknowledged in the civil court system.

Our Bicycle Accident Lawyer Fees

Our lawyers represent bicycle accident clients on a strict contingency basis. This means that you will not be asked to pay legal fees until your case has been successfully resolved. Instead, your Toronto bicycle accident lawyer will be entitled to an agreed-upon percentage of your final compensation.
