No drop in car accidents involving bicyclists and pedestrians

Pedestrians and bicyclists in Mississauga and across Ontario will always be vulnerable when they share the roads with motorists. They have none of the protection that automobiles offer, and injuries could be catastrophic or even fatal. Car accidents that involve pedestrians and cyclists often lead to spinal cord trauma, fractured bones or traumatic brain injuries.

The Vision Zero plan that was approved by authorities in Toronto in 2016 aims to eliminate traffic fatalities entirely. However, a recent survey determined that more than half the respondents do not believe bike riders are safe on city streets. Reportedly, four Toronto bicyclists have already lost their lives in the first six months of 2018 -- causing concern because that equals the total number of bike-rider fatalities for 2017.

Further reports indicate that 20 pedestrians have died in road accidents so far in 2018. Based on the reported fatalities, the Vision Zero plan does not seem to have the desired effect. Until all road users comply with traffic rules and avoid distractions, road safety is not likely to improve. When pedestrians or bicyclists are injured in car accidents, the shock and trauma typically make it difficult to choose how to proceed. The same applies to Ontario families who lose loved ones in such accidents.

In these circumstances, the experience of a personal injury lawyer can be an invaluable asset. A lawyer can assess the situations and determine the most appropriate way to obtain financial support to cover economic losses and emotional damages. While injured victims of car accidents focus on recovering, and surviving family members deal with the grief of losing a loved one, a lawyer can navigate the ensuing administrative and legal proceedings.
