Cycling Injuries

In a survey conducted by the Canadian government, it was noted that an estimated 7 million Canadians have reported that they have cycled within the past 3 months. With the health benefits, positive environmental impact and cost efficiency of cycling, this number will likely increase. Accordingly, The Ministry of Transportation of Ontario consistently updates their rules and regulations pertaining to cycling, with safety at the forefront.

Unfortunately, every year, many cyclists are involved in accidents with vehicles on the road. Drivers of motor vehicles open their car doors in front of a cyclist or pull onto a street directly into an oncoming cyclist’s path. A drunk or distracted driver, speeding, aggressive driving or simple carelessness can result in serious injuries for cyclists.

When you have been injured in a car wreck, you are entitled to accident benefits whether you or the other party is at fault for the accident. If you were a driver, passenger, pedestrian or even a cyclist – you can make a claim.

There is often just a short window of time in which you can apply for benefits and damages in relation to your cycling accident injuries. Contact a Bergel Magence team member to speak with a bicycle accident injury lawyer who can start your claims process today.
