Default Bicycle accident case in Toronto

Hi all, Let me ask you the legal possibilities of one case. It is an incident related to a bicycle accident in Toronto. 1 week ago I went out for a cycling in the morning. One car hit my cycle and ran away. I couldn’t note the number. I was taken to the hospital by someone. My friend told me to consult some law firms like Campisi LLP to file a case. But we didn’t have any signs about that car. So if I move legally with this case, can I get any benefit from it?

You could certainly file a police report to start - and hope they catch the person that did it!

At that point both civil and criminal law options exist.

I do not think you have anything more than hospital and doctor services covered by the state. Even if you found the driver, ONT is a no fault state. Successfully suing beyond that barrier would require you win enough to pay the barrister and reimburse the Province their lawsuit fee of about $10k. This would unlikely produce the money to do even that.

It is very bad to hear your incident. Don't worry!!!
Lawyer will definitely find a way to move on your case. For a help try to make a free consultation. On doing this it will give an idea about what action to take for filing a claim against the person. Personal Injury claims are time-sensitive and must be filed within the stipulated timeframe since investigations have to be carried out and evidence needs to be preserved.

Every city in the country should have the local law that we do that the car must be 3 feet from the bike rider at all times while passing the biker!!
