Bicycle Accidents - Bicycle Accident Injuries

Bicycles use and bicycle accidents have increased dramatically in Toronto and throughout Ontario.

As injury lawyers we help cyclists who have been injured in a bicycle accident.

Under the Highway Traffic Act of Ontario a bicycle is considered a "vehicle" and is entitled to fair use of the road with cars and trucks (motor vehicles).

All vehicles and motor vehicles on the roadway are obligated by law to yield or give the bicycles and cyclists space on the road.

What's alarming, as bicycle injury lawyers is that increasing cyclists are involved in accidents, where the cyclist is being seriously injured as a result of a careless motorists.

Motorists have a responsibility to "Share the Road".

Injury Lawyers for Bicycle Accidents

As injury lawyers we understand that when your riding your bicycle you do not have the level of protection that someone in a car may have.

On a bicycle there are no seatbelts, airbags, or metal around you to protect you from injury.

Not only has a bicycle less protection in an accident but many motorists do not realize that you have a lawful right to use the roadway safely.

Most cyclists are unable to do simple things like see approaching motor vehicle traffic coming from behind, or move quickly out of the way to protect themselves from an accident.

As such the chance of bicycle being hurt in an accident is high and bicycle injuries can be serious or result in death.
