Ottawa Cycling Accident.
Ottawa newspapers reported that a 35 year old Ottawa cyclist was rushed to an Ottawa hospital after being struck on his bicycle on Bank Street this morning. Ottawa Paramedics rushed to the cycling accident close to Riverside Drive. Upon arrival at the hospital,the cyclist was said to have been in stable condition; however with severe abdominal and head injuries. Often times cycling accidents have very severe consequences and sadly many cyclists suffer very serious injuries including brain injuries and head injuries. I hope this is not the case here and this cyclist is able to recover fully.
It’s important to know that if you are injured in a cycling accident, you are able to access Ontario accident benefits through the driver’s insurance. There are many insurance benefits available to cyclists in Ontario. If you are in doubt of what you cyclists are entitled to, consult with a personal injury lawyer to ensure you receive proper treatments and maximum compensation.
