Bicycle accidents can be quite serious and sometimes fatal. Farrell Law Group provides client-focused legal services for bicycle accident victims and their families in Toronto, the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and throughout southern Ontario. We will shoulder your legal burdens so you can concentrate on recovery.
With today's push to preserve the environment and "go green," many people have taken to travelling by bicycle, using sidewalks, bicycle lanes and public roads to get around. Under applicable Ontario laws, bicyclists have the same rights on the roadways as motorists. When drivers ignore these rights and a serious accident results, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you understand your rights for seeking compensation for your injuries.
We Understand the Serious Injuries Bicycle Accidents Can Cause
Bicycles offer little structural protection to their riders beyond a safety helmet and their clothing. Cyclists hit by cars or other motor vehicles, therefore, are often at a higher risk of sustaining serious injuries, including:
- Head and brain injuries
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Fractures and broken bones
- Abrasions/road rash
- Partial or permanent disability
- Wrongful death
Treatment of these injuries can be expensive and recovery can be a lengthy process. We will look at the whole picture, and work diligently to seek compensation to meet all your short- and long-term needs. Our personal injury firm routinely works with top medical specialists and other experts to aid in the investigation and preparation of your claim.
We can help you seek compensation from at-fault parties, their insurance companies or your own insurance coverage if at-fault parties cannot be identified or if they are uninsured or underinsured. We will review your situation in detail and provide honest legal advice and dedicated assistance to obtain all the benefits and compensation to which you may be entitled.
