Bicycle Accidents

Pranzitelli Law > Types Of Injury Cases > Bicycle Accidents

Thankfully, many Ontarians have made the green and healthy choice, riding their bicycle to work, or the coffee shop or for pleasure.  Regretfully, with more riders on the road, there has been an increase in car and bike collisions. Most accidents happen at intersections where cars and cyclists cross paths.  Many of our city and rural streets in the Greater Toronto Area and throughout Ontario do not have designated bike lanes putting cyclists at risk of being struck. Beyond this, other factor can also pose a threat to cyclists including unsafe bike lanes, congested roadways, public transit, potholes and of course, harsh weather.  These dangers can have deadly consequences for cyclists.

 

Under the Highway Traffic Act, cyclists are typically treated as pedestrians meaning they are presumed to have the right-of-way.  However as a cyclist, being safe is much more important than being correct, as nearly every bike accident results in the cyclist being seriously injured.  

 

What are your Rights?

Cyclists injured as a result of the negligence or fault of another motor vehicle have the right to sue the driver who caused the accident.  The injured cyclist would also be entitled to claim though Statutory Accident Benefits either though their own insurance carrier or if they did not have automobile insurance though their own policy (or of someone they are dependant on), than through the policy of the at fault driver.  These benefits will cover items such as lost wages, medical rehabilitation and other benefits. Click here for more information.

You can seek compensation for damages such as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of income, medical costs, care costs and other expenses. Even if the at-fault driver did not have valid insurance, fled the scene or was driving a stolen vehicle – you may still be covered by an insurance policy or otherwise.
