Bicycle Accident Lawyers Toronto – Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers
Bike Accidents in Toronto
Cycling is not just fun on the weekend but it’s a great way to incorporate exercise into your daily commute. For those with concerns about the environment, biking is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Also, with the rising costs of owning a vehicle or using public transport, more people are taking to the roads and making cycling their main mode of transport. Your health and your wallet will thank you for this choice!
While it is a great low impact activity, cycling is not without its risks. You might find that the roads in your neighbourhood are not especially friendly to cyclists; whether that means inconsiderate drivers and pedestrians or poor networks of dedicated paths, trails and bike lanes.

Dooring Incidents and Bike Accident Claims in Ontario
“Dooring” describes a scenario when a stopped or parked vehicle suddenly opens its door and hits a cyclist. Dooring is one of the more violent bike accidents that can occur because the cyclist is left with the choice to collide with the car door or to veer onto the road, highly increasing the likelihood of being struck by a moving vehicle. Often, the resulting injuries can be serious and even lead to death. Cyclists everywhere know and fear this dangerous collision, especially in an urban setting.
Cyclists can do a great deal to avoid this type of accident. They can ride defensively and expect the unexpected from all motorists. Cyclists are also urged to stay at least one-metre away from parked cars, which creates a buffer zone. Cyclists can also prevent being doored by avoiding instances of weaving in and out between parked cars. But, even the most vigilant riders who take all the precautions can find themselves in a collision with a car door.

We are your bike accident claim experts
Dooring, unfortunately, is only one of the ways a cyclist can be involved in an accident. Sometimes, on the road, cars might swerve into your lane without looking. Cars might also stop in front of you abruptly. Roads and trails might be improperly maintained, in which case you can make a claim against the municipality.
Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers is unlike other personal injury law firms in the city because we prioritize the wellbeing of our clients with every case. Bike accident claims are important to our work because cyclists are especially vulnerable on the road and have so little protection in the event of a traffic accident.

Our team of bicycle accident lawyers are experts in filing comprehensive dooring claims for accident victims. We work quickly and thoroughly to get you the compensation you deserve and need to recuperate.
Understanding the Insurance Claims Process
The insurance claims process is often time-consuming and complex. Insurance companies will assess every minute detail of the events leading up to accident to ascertain fault. As a victim, you must submit to medical examinations and intense scrutiny of your injuries. These will be accompanied by meetings with legal counsel for the insurance company. These are known as Examinations for Discovery, or ‘depositions.’
