Welcoming a New Supporter: Singer Kwinter

533953_10151532834408518_2045977644_n

BikingToronto would like to welcome our newest supporter: Singer Kwinter, a Personal Injury Law Firm.  You’ll be seeing their name at the top of every page this year, as well as in our email newsletter.

Unfortunately, until Toronto has better and safter cycling infrastructure, the roads are going to be dangerous on occasion, and it’s essential that cyclists know their rights on the road.  This is especially true if they have been injured by a motor vehicle.

Please find below a brief introduction to Singer Kwinter and how they may be able to help you.

Since 1974, Singer Kwinter has been known for its relentless pursuit of justice for those who have sustained a catastrophic personal injury. Our tenacity, thoroughness and thoughtful strategies have built our reputation with the courts, amongst insurers and within the profession as a leader in personal injury law. Named one of Canada’s top personal injury law firms, we have established a solid reputation for securing the full compensation our clients deserve.

What Happens If You Are Injured While Riding Your Bicycle?

  • If a cyclist suffers an injury while riding a bicycle, the cyclist will only have access to motor vehicle insurance benefits if the injury resulted from an accident involving a motor vehicle.
  • A cyclist who has an accident with a bicycle, without the presence of a motor vehicle will not be entitled to motor vehicle insurance benefits.
  • If an injury is sustained as a result of an accident with a motor vehicle, the injured cyclist should notify his/her own motor vehicle insurer so that he/she can apply for accident benefits.
  • If a cyclist does not have his/her own motor vehicle insurance, the cyclist should notify one of the motor vehicle insurers of the vehicles involved in the accident. Whichever insurer is notified is the one responsible for providing accident benefits to the injured cyclist.
  • If an injured cyclist meets the statutory requirements to bring a civil action against the negligent parties who caused the accident, the cyclist can sue for damages, including pain and suffering, income loss and any expenses not covered through the accident benefits claim.

NEWS: Why not make biking on sidewalks legal in the suburbs?

I tend to agree with the main concept here… that suburban arterials need bike infrastructure badly… but cars go SO fast on those roads, it’s impossible to feel safe even in a bikelane that is just paint. A physical barrier (curb, bollards, etc) is needed, or an cycling addition on the side of sidewalks.  Many […]

OH YEAH! How I learned to love cycling my way to work

I’ll be honest, and I hate to admit this, but I used to be that person that perpetually ran five minutes late—to everything. I’d do my best to be timely, but in many circumstances, I just couldn’t seem to make it to my commitments on time. A few years ago my brother became a bicycle […]
