Bicycle Accident Lawyer Scarborough

Riding a bike can benefit both the local environment and personal health. A zero-emission mode of transportation, riding a bicycle instead of relying on a motor vehicle or public transportation can help decrease a person’s carbon footprint. Cycling can also decrease personal stress levels, enhance cardiovascular fitness, improve flexibility, muscle strength, and joint mobility, and even prevent diseases. Unfortunately, though, if a cyclist encounters a negligent driver on the road, the ensuing bicycle accident could have serious, long-lasting effects on a rider’s physical health and well-being.

Sadly, it is clearly evident that Scarborough was not designed with the safety of cyclists in mind, nor have sufficient infrastructure improvements been implemented to keep bicycle riders from being harmed. Scarborough has the GTA’s highest per capita rate of deadly traffic collisions, causing many bicycle riders to feel unsafe on their own streets.

While the very design of the city might favour motor vehicles and encourage them to move as fast as possible, Scarborough’s urban plan alone cannot be blamed for tragic, injury-causing bicycle accidents. Negligent drivers who fail to comply with the duties outlined in the provincial Highway Traffic Act are responsible for the majority of fatal or injurious bicycle accidents in Scarborough. 

The operators of motor vehicles owe a duty of care to all road-users, including cyclists. If a driver fails to uphold this duty of care by engaging in wrongful actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other forms of misconduct on the road, their negligence could have devastating consequences for bicycle accident victims and their families.

Driver negligence on Scarborough’s roads can result in the tragic loss of life. Even the most vigilant, safety-conscious cyclists can be struck by a negligent driver. Those who are lucky enough to survive serious collisions could find themselves reeling from severe, life-changing injuries. 

Sustaining even moderate injuries in a Scarborough bicycling accident can have long-term physical, psychological, and financial repercussions. The road to recovery can be long and expensive. Many bicycle accident survivors are unprepared for the massive economic losses they can incur as a result of being injured in a collision, and often experience financial distress in the aftermath of their accidents. This is especially true of injured bicycle accident survivors who are no longer able to work because of their newly acquired medical conditions and require live-in personal support workers and attendant care.

Our Scarborough bicycle accident lawyers are passionate about providing necessary legal advice and support to injured members of the local community. Our bicycle accident lawyers serving Scarborough advocate for the safety of vulnerable road-users, and believe that no one should be forced to suffer because of someone else’s wrongful behaviours.
