Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents


Bicycles are an enjoyable way for people to travel, both for leisure and commuting, and are a pollution-free mode of transportation as well.  Unfortunately, bicyclists are constantly struggling to share the road with larger vehicles travelling with much greater momentum.  In the same way as a motorcycle, where there is no real structural protection in the event of an accident, a bicycle provides barely any protection at all.  Injury categories include:


  • Brain trauma
  • Spinal cord head and back injuries
  • Severe bone fractures
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Ongoing pain
  • Wrongful death


A bicycle or pedestrian accident can be a devastating life-changing event as it may cause extreme long-term pain and suffering, permanent disability or disfigurement. Coping with the trauma associated with such an accident can be nearly insurmountable, especially when the physical pain is mixed with emotional distress. Our firm’s personal injury lawyers are trained in representing cycling-motor vehicle accident victims and their families. At Hauer and Company, we will guide you through all aspects of your case, including time limitations, documentation and assessment submission. Our expertise will allow us to complete a thorough case investigation as we work with professional experts such as accident reconstruction engineers, medical experts, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and vocational counsellors to ensure that we obtain the best resolution for you.
