Bicycle Accident Lawyer Ottawa

Cycling can be an environmentally-friendly way to commute to work, an invigorating form of exercise, and a leisurely outdoor recreational activity that the whole family can enjoy. Unfortunately, it can also be extremely dangerous. If a negligent motor vehicle operator strikes an unsuspecting cyclist, the bicycle rider can sustain severe injuries. Sadly, bicycle accidents in Ottawa can also lead to tragic losses of life.

According to statistical data released by the municipal government, more than 100 cyclists are injured or killed in Ottawa each year. While the occupants of motor vehicles can rely on their cars’ built-in safety features, cyclists are totally exposed to the dangers of the road. Even if a bicycle rider is outfitted with a helmet to reduce the risk of traumatic brain injuries in the event of a collision, the irresponsible actions– or inactions– of a negligent driver can have far-reaching and life-altering effects.

With the installation of new bike lanes throughout the city, Ottawa has seen a marked increase in the number of cyclists on its roads. Unfortunately, the higher volume of cyclists has led to an increase in fatal or injury-causing bicycle accidents.

Each year, dozens of bicycle riders in Ottawa sustain catastrophic injuries. Even the most safety-minded, rule-abiding cyclists can be robbed of their mobility, their cognitive functions, their ability to continue working, and their independence because of the thoughtlessness of a negligent driver.

Sustaining injuries in an Ottawa bicycle accident can be a physically demanding, emotionally exhausting, and expensive process. By working with our Ottawa bicycle accident lawyers, the survivors of injurious collisions with negligent motorists may be able to recover damages that are both pecuniary and non-pecuniary in nature.

Pecuniary (or, economic) damages refer to the cold hard costs accumulated by accident survivors as a direct result of the injuries they have sustained. These could be expenses they have been required to pay out-of-pocket, as well as the injury-related financial losses that they are likely to incur in the future. These could be related to medical expenses, attendant care, lost wages, reduced future earning capacities, and more.

Non-pecuniary damages, on the other hand, are not as easily calculable. These damages might be available to catastrophically injured accident survivors whose newly acquired medical conditions significantly diminish their overall qualities of life. The amount of these damages can be more difficult to determine, seeing as how no one can put a price tag on another person’s emotional distress or pain and suffering. However, if you were struck by a negligent driver while riding your bike and sustained debilitating, catastrophic injuries, our bicycle accident lawyers serving Ottawa may be able to help you pursue a civil claim to recover compensation for your non-pecuniary damages.
