Few cities in Canada have embraced walking and cycling more than Toronto. Each day, thousands of people walk or cycle throughout the city on sidewalks, roads and bike paths. Unfortunately, many drivers don’t use the caution they should – and their speeding, distraction and general carelessness can cause serious injuries if they get into accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists.
At Howie, Sacks & Henry, our lawyers are drawn to personal injury law for one common reason: to provide legal and personal help to serious accident victims who need assistance and care. In no other area does our mission apply more strongly than that of highly vulnerable cyclists and pedestrians.
People who walk or ride bikes have little opportunity to avoid injuries when drivers aren’t paying attention. And, because they have little or no protection, pedestrians and cyclists involved in accidents with motor vehicles tend to suffer serious injuries – including spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries – and even death.
If you or a loved one was hit by a motor vehicle while walking or cycling, you need legal advice from an experienced personal injury lawyer who understands what you’re going through. We have years of experience defending the rights of bike and pedestrian accident victims and are committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure you get the best result.
