Why You Need A Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Bicycle riders are at extreme risk for serious personal injury when involved in an accident. Motorists are insensitive to the rights of bicyclists and can place a bicyclist in extreme danger. We are very experienced with accidents involving bicycles and motor vehicles. Every bicycle rider involved in an accident with a motor vehicle is entitled to a claim for accident benefits and a claim for compensation against the at fault driver. It is extremely important to retain a bicycle accident lawyer immediately after the accident so that the scene of the accident can be inspected by an engineer who can find evidence to help build your winning case. It is also important to have the engineer inspect not only your bicycle but also the other vehicle so that a proper accident reconstruction can take place. Sometimes a bicycle accident does not involve a motor vehicle but some other deficiency such as a pothole on a roadway, streetcar tracks or poor winter maintenance. In situations like this, your Bicycle Accident Lawyer will analyse the particular facts of your accident to determine the merits of your case.
Your Bicycle Accident Lawyer will file a Tort Claim and an Accident Benefits Claim on your behalf.
A Tort Claim is an entitlement for compensation from the at fault driver’s insurance company. An Accident Benefits Claim is no fault compensation for income replacement, medical and rehabilitation expenses as well as expenses for attendant care and housekeeping.
What Your Bicycle Accident Lawyer Will DoYour Bicycle Accident Lawyer will have experts investigate your accident and injuries in order to build your winning case. If you have been injured, our experts will determine how to get you the best medical care you deserve, including immediate and long term care and rehabilitation. In Ontario, if a motor vehicle strikes a cyclist, there is a presumption of negligence on the part of the motor vehicle driver. We do not rely merely on a presumption of negligence. We go the extra step to build your winning case on liability.

Here’s What Our Clients Say
Often the public perceives lawyers in a negative way; but I can honestly say that David Himelfarb has the utmost ethical standards of any lawyer that I have dealt with. He took the time to explain the particulars of my case, was always available to take my calls, always returned my calls and his team of Clerks and Assistants were equally as professional and courteous. Should I ever need legal representation, I can assure you that I will retain his firm.
My no fault benefit claim was handled by the firm and was settled quickly and for a very good amount. The firm is extremely professional and dedicated. I would highly recommend the firm to anyone who has been involved in a serious accident.
