Ready To Get Started?
Any cyclist who gets hurt needs to understand their rights and know where they can find help. Ontario has a complicated insurance system and getting the best lawyer you can is crucial. If you are a cyclist involved in an accident you may be able to sue the driver of the car or truck that hit you. You may also make a claim for what are known as no-fault benefits.
At McNally Gervan we have represented many injured cyclists and their families. We have helped them access needed insurance benefits and to get the compensation they deserve. As always, our goal is to get victims the support they need to get back on track and the compensation they deserve. Compensation for serious cycling accidents often includes damages for pain and suffering, compensation for past and future losses of income, and the recovery of past and ongoing medical and rehabilitation costs.

The lawyers at McNally Gervan LLP understand the system and are here to help accident victims get the support they need and the benefits they deserve.
