Regrettably, an Ottawa cyclist was on her bicycle yesterday morning by a vehicle at the intersection of Wurtemburg Street and Rideau.  Ottawa Police were able to treat the female cyclist at the Ottawa accident scene but the extent of her injuries was not known at the time of the accident. Ottawa Police are investigating the accident and what may have caused it.

Bicycle Accidents and Injuries

Cyclists involved in a cycling accident with a car or truck typically suffer any number of severe injuries, including orthopaedic injuries, broken bones and head injuries and spinal injuries. Unfortunately, in these accidents , a helmet is not enough protection. Our personal injury lawyers are highly experienced in cycling accidents and can hire expert accident reconstruction experts to reconstruct cycling accidents and prepare engineering reports to show the impact of a cycling accident.

In other words, this means that in a cycling accident a driver must prove that they were NOT at fault. Our bicycle accident lawyers are also experienced in preparing for this.
