Welcoming a New Supporter: Singer Kwinter

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.

_________________________________________________

 

Singer Kwinter is proud to support the Biking Toronto community. Our goal is to help riders understand their rights.

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. In the event that an unexpected injury occurs while riding your bicycle, top legal counsel is essential.  Call us at 1-866-285-6927 or visit us online at www.singerkwinter.com.

 

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.

Sponsor Post: Roots Canada is having a sale

250x250_Oct2013_CAHey everyone,

You may have noticed a Roots ad over there in the sidebar of BikingToronto.  They’ll be sticking around for a while as they are helping BikingToronto cover some costs (and their monetary contribution is helping pay for the free t-shirts and donated a bunch of the prizes being given away in the Cycle Toronto Refer-A-Rider campaign).

They’re having a store-wide sale from now and over the weekend, so check them out.

I’m not personally into “cycling” clothes – choosing instead to wear “regular” clothes while biking to work, and my super warm Roots hoodies are doing an amazing job of keeping me warm on these mornings where the temperature is hovering in the low single-digits.

A Devinci Montreal Bike!

(value: $650)

Cycle Toronto is putting the names of everyone who signs up into a draw for a bike donated by Curbside Cycle.  The bike is a Devinci Montreal and looks amazing.  If you win you can choose the male or female version of the bike.

“We met with Devinci about five years ago to help design a lightweight, sportier city bike, that could truly multi-task day-in-day-out city cycling plus longer recreational jaunts on the weekend. The Devinci Montreal is part of our passion to develop truly North American designed city bikes and we feel its offers a lighter, stronger, more rust-resistant and comfortable bike than most of its European competition. Very limited edition, only 300 made!” 


2 Road Holland Jerseys

(value: $120 each)

We make serious and stylish cycling wear. Serious because cycling demands clothes that fit well, perform well, and last. Stylish because we believe riders shouldn’t look like ad-emblazoned corporate team clowns just because they are on two wheels.

(value: $25 each)

Toronto filmmaker Rob Stewart turns his camera from the saving the oceans — as he did with 2006 film-fest favourite Sharkwater — to the rest of the planet with Revolution.  Inspired by a question from the audience at a Hong Kong screening of Sharkwater, where a student wonders why Stewart is so worried about saving sharks when it looks like the oceans will be devoid of life by 2048, Stewart sets off to find answers.
