Cycling Accidents

Throughout Ottawa and eastern Ontario, cycling is a popular activity. More and more cities have been creating bike lanes and encouraging cycling as a green, alternative form of transportation.

However, even though efforts have been made to make our city streets and other areas friendly to cyclists, they are at a disadvantage when they encounter negligent drivers. In an accident with a car, truck or bus, a cyclist can be left with serious, life-changing injuries.

Examples of cycling accident claims that our Ottawa lawyers have brought to resolution:

Cyclist hit by a car
Cyclist injury caused by poor road maintenance
Cyclist injured on a bike path
Cyclist struck by another cyclist
Cyclist struck by a truck
