Ottawa has a great cycling culture and despite Ottawa having designated paths and lanes for cyclist to cycle to work or for recreation, cycling accidents in Ottawa occur far too often. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough designated paths and lanes and we meet regularly with Ottawa cyclists who have been struck by a car or truck and have suffered serious personal injuries. Often drivers simply do not see cyclists and inevitably accidents between motor vehicles and cyclists happen. The most common injuries cyclists suffer are typically head injuries and orthopaedic injuries.
Unfortunately, cycling accidents involving cars can often result in catastrophic injury, serious brain injuries, spinal injuries, broken bones, scars and lacerations. We understand how these injuries are life altering and our Ottawa personal injury lawyers are here to help. We’ll help you seek damages from the driver’s insurance company or the liable public or private transit organization. We work with top medical professionals in Ottawa and Toronto who can diagnose your injury and help us determine the long-term effects and health care you’ll need now and for the future. This is essential to securing the proper maximum compensation for you.
