Cycling Accidents Often Result in the Most Serious Injuries
Ottawa has a great cycling culture and despite Ottawa having designated paths and lanes for cyclists to cycle to work or for recreation, cycling accidents occur far too often. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough designated paths and lanes and we meet regularly with cyclists who have been struck by a car and have suffered serious 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 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 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.
