Throughout Ottawa and eastern Ontario, cycling is a popular activity. More and more cities have been creating bike lanes and encouraging cycling as a green, alternative form of transportation.
However, even though efforts have been made to make our city streets and other areas friendly to cyclists, they are at a disadvantage when they encounter negligent drivers. In an accident with a car, truck or bus, a cyclist can be left with serious, life-changing injuries.
At Burn Tucker Lachaîne, we work on behalf of injured victims to pursue the compensation and other benefits they need and deserve for their injuries. Personal injury work is all we do. As one of the largest personal injury firms in eastern Ontario, we leave no stone unturned. We will help you get the best possible result after a cycling accident.
