Toronto Bicycle Accident Lawyers

It can be difficult to get around the city of Toronto. Commuters are often forced to choose between sitting in frustrating traffic jams or using our city’s overcrowded, underserviced, and unpredictable public transit system. Many Torontonians view cycling as a practical, environmentally-friendly third option. However, cycling in the city can be extremely dangerous.

Despite the municipal government’s implementation of the Vision Zero Road Safety Plan to reduce the number of fatal collisions on Toronto’s streets several years ago, the city is nowhere close to its target. In fact, dozens of cyclists are killed or seriously injured in Toronto each year.

According to a recent report released by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), in just one year, fatal bicycle accidents have skyrocketed by 300%. There are more motor vehicles on the city’s streets than ever before, and their drivers’ frustration about heavy traffic congestion often translates to aggravated behaviour behind the wheel. Aggressive driving and excessive speeding are the leading causes of deadly bicycle accidents in Toronto. Other examples of negligent driving that often lead to collisions with cyclists include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Driving under the influence of illegal drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Improperly changing lanes
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • Failing to yield
  • Failing to leave an adequate buffer
  • And more

Cyclists who are lucky enough to survive being struck by negligent drivers frequently sustain serious or catastrophic injuries. For injured survivors of severe bicycle accidents in Toronto, the ramifications can be long-lasting, painful, and expensive.

Injured bicycle accident survivors face numerous challenges, not least of which are the necessary costs of medical expenses and lifestyle adjustments. In many situations, the injuries sustained in a collision with a motor vehicle make it impossible for the injured cyclist to return to work. That means they could be faced with monumental, injury-related costs at a time when they can least afford them.

If you were struck by a negligent driver while cycling, our Toronto bicycle accident lawyers may be able to help you recover the compensation you are rightfully owed. Our bicycle accident lawyers serving Toronto appreciate how vulnerable cyclists are to the dangers of the road, and how profoundly their lives can be changed because of a driver’s negligence. By working with our Toronto bicycle accident lawyers, you may be able to file a civil claim against the driver responsible for causing your injurious collision in an attempt to recover damages. These damages might include:

  • Lost wages
  • Reduced future earning capabilities
  • Prescription drugs
  • Medical equipment
  • Prosthetics
  • Attendant care
  • Other medical expenses
  • Mileage costs to and from medical appointments
  • Housekeeping services
  • Home modification costs to accommodate newly acquired disabilities
  • Legal fees
  • Pain and suffering
  • And possibly more
