OH YEAH! Toronto lawyer helps cyclists pedal through ‘unjust’ legal system

For cyclists injured in an accident, navigating the legal system can be as hard as biking through downtown Toronto during rush hour, says lawyer Patrick Brown. “The system can be very complicated and a lot of cyclists don’t know what entitlements they have,” he said.
