Every driver has the responsibility to watch out for others sharing the road. This includes those travelling by motorcycle, bicycle or on foot. Unfortunately, however, careless or hurried drivers may fail to recognize pedestrians' or bicyclists' rights, resulting in serious accidents and injuries.
If you or a loved one was hit by a car while walking, crossing the street or whilst cycling in a bicycle lane, you may be entitled to compensation from responsible parties. Stevenson Whelton LLP can assist you in making a claim for your medical expenses, property damages, loss of wages, and pain and suffering you have endured. We represent motor vehicle accident victims in Oakville, Toronto, Vaughan and Oshawa.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Accident Lawyers Serving Oakville, Toronto, Vaughan and Oshawa
Bicycle lanes are designed to give bicyclists safety and security on public roadways. Likewise, sidewalks, crosswalks and traffic signals protect pedestrians travelling alongside the road. Drivers who do not respect bike lanes, crosswalks or traffic signals and cause an accident may be held financially accountable for the injuries and/or losses sustained.
We understand the serious or catastrophic injuries that pedestrians or bicyclists can suffer, such as:
Some can result in chronic pain months later, or perhaps long-term disability. Whatever the nature and extent of your injuries, we are committed to obtaining all compensation to which you are entitled.
In addition to compensation from at-fault parties, we can also help you seek accident benefits to which you may be entitled. Accident benefits are available regardless of who is at fault, and may be particularly helpful if you were the victim of a hit-and-run accident. As your advocate, we will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to help you maintain financial stability during this tough time.
