Every year in Ottawa we see more and more people cycling and an increasing number of bicycle lanes across the city. Along with this increased popularity comes the risks cyclist face while sharing the streets with cars, trucks and other motor vehicles
Pedestrians face a high risk of injury when drivers do not pay attention to street signs, traffic signals or are unaware of crosswalks and rights of way.
Due to the lack of protection, pedestrians and bicyclists often suffer significant injuries in an accident with a car or other motor vehicle.
If you were a pedestrian or cyclist involved in an automobile accident, you are entitled to no-fault accident benefits coverage, even if you did not have your own automobile insurance. If you are the relative of someone involved in a fatal bike or pedestrian accident you may also be entitled to no-fault accident benefits. In addition to no-fault benefits, you may also claim damages from the at-fault driver for your pain and suffering, income loss and any other losses you have suffered.
We have extensive experience investigating pedestrian and bicycle claims and identifying all possible sources of financial recovery. In addition, we will help you get the medical and financial help you need to recover and go on with your life.
