Busy downtown streets are risky for vulnerable road users – pedestrians and cyclists – at the best of times; when construction zones are involved they can be downright dangerous. Nowhere in Canada is the threat greater than in Toronto, the nation’s biggest city and currently the site of more than 700 construction zones according to the local CBC. To Toronto car accident lawyers, the lack of safety measures around the city’s construction sites is an urgent issue that must be addressed.
“Projects are monitored and adjustments are made to the road set up to address issues that may arise during construction,” said Eric Jensen, Toronto’s traffic operations manager, to the CBC. “In every case, safety is of paramount importance and every effort is made to ensure the maximum level of that safety for all road users, particularly the most vulnerable, while also protecting the workers on the site.”
Toronto’s construction zones must adhere to several pieces of legislation, including the Occupational Health and Safety Act, but many safety advocates and Toronto car accident lawyers believe more can be done. Adam Cohoon of Walk Toronto suggested to the CBC that reduced speed limits would improve safety, and Pamela Fuselli of Parachute suggested collecting more data.
Currently, the provincial Ministry of Labour is responsible for tracking injuries around construction sites, but their data is imprecise. The CBC reports that 50 non-workers were injured over the past five years, but couldn’t identify between pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, or others. Fifteen injuries were reported in 2018, the most of any year.
Every day, Toronto car accident lawyers talk to injured pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists about their accidents. Eventually, trends begin to emerge, including elevated risks for vulnerable road users and concerns about safety in construction zones. With the mayoral election around the corner, Toronto personal injury lawyers, law enforcement officials, and all manner of safety advocates are optimistic that road safety issues will become a priority at City Hall. Initiatives like Vision Zero have identified opportunities to improve safety for all road users but without political impetus, deaths and serious injuries will continue to occur on Toronto’s streets.
If you or a member of your family have been injured in an automotive accident at or near a construction site, contact Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers today to learn how we can help. Our experienced group of Toronto car accident lawyers can provide guidance and assistance as you navigate the legal system and work towards your recovery.

September has arrived, but motorcycle season is far from over in Ontario – in the province’s south region, fall foliage makes October one of the best months of the year to enjoy a long weekend ride. Unfortunately, as every Ontario motorcycle accident lawyer knows, motorcycle riding comes with inherent risks.
Last month, the British Columbia Coroners Service announced that 30 motorcyclists had died so far in 2018, twice as many as the year before. Eighteen of those deaths came in July, alone. Several months earlier, in May, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) released data showing that fatal Ontario motorcycle accidents had reached a 10-year high in 2017.
“Over and above marking a 10-year high, what made last year’s 48 motorcyclist deaths particularly tragic was the fact that almost half (22) of the motorcycle drivers were not the at-fault driver,” the police service said in a release.
In British Columbia, speed and impairment are the most common causes of fatal motorcycle crashes.
“Speed is the leading factor for motorcycle crashes,” said Lindsay Matthews, ICBC interim vice-president responsible for road safety, in a release. “It makes it difficult to respond to unexpected events, or to correct for errors. ICBC strongly encourage motorcyclists to keep within posted speed limits at all times, and to wear full protective gear to protect themselves in the event of a crash.”
Environmental factors also contributed to about a quarter of the deaths in BC.
Any Ontario motorcycle accident lawyer can tell you to wear your helmet and reduce your speed, but what else can Ontario motorcyclists do to avoid accidents this fall?
- Wear full riding gear: protective apparel can mean the difference between a mild and serious injury
- Ride defensively: assume other drivers can’t see you; keep your headlights on and avoid drivers’ blind spots
- Never drive while inebriated
- Inspect your motorcycle prior to your ride: check tires for cracks, bulges, and wear; look for oil or gas leaks; make sure your headlights are working; keep tabs on hydraulic and coolant fluid levels; ensure the clutch and throttle are working smoothly; adjust mirrors as necessary; test the horn; test the brakes at a low speed.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers as soon as possible to speak with an experienced Ontario motorcycle accident lawyer. Our team can help you understand your legal options and provide guidance as you take the first steps on your road to recovery.
