Mississauga Bicycle Accidents


Cycling in Mississauga is becoming increasingly dangerous. Province-wide, police have reported a 300% year over year increase in deadly bicycle accidents, indicating a shocking wave of driver negligence and an overall lack of consideration for the safety of our neighbours.

When negligent drivers strike vulnerable road-users like cyclists, the resulting bicycle accident in Mississauga can cause victims to sustain critical injuries. If the accident victim is fortunate enough to survive their injuries, they may find themselves coping with the physical, psychological, and financial repercussions of someone else’s wrongful behaviour for the rest of their lives.

According to statistics made available from Peel Public Health, over 1000 bicycle accidents in the region each year require visits to local emergency departments. Injuries frequently sustained in Mississauga bicycle accidents include:

  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Knee injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Cuts, lacerations
  • Friction wounds (e.g. “road rash”)
  • Internal organ damage
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussions
  • And more

Since cyclists are completely exposed to the dangers of the roads, they are likely to sustain catastrophic injuries when struck by a negligent driver. Because of a motorist’s failure to abide by local traffic laws and operate their vehicle with a reasonable degree of caution, a catastrophically injured bicycle accident victim could lose their mobility, their ability to carry out the duties of their job, and their independence. Catastrophically injured bicycle accident survivors are often robbed of future opportunities to participate in activities they enjoyed prior to their collision. The overall quality of life to which they had become accustomed can be significantly diminished because of the wrongful actions of a negligent driver.
