This afternoon, there is another report of a serious accident involving a motorcycle and a car near Front Street and Parliament Street in Toronto. According to information reported, the motorcyclist was transported to a Toronto Hospital via EMS with serious injuries.
First and foremost we sincerely hope that the man injured in this Toronto motorycle accident makes a speedy and complete recovery from his injuries.
This summer I have had occasion to write about a number of motorycle accidents in Toronto and the GTA. The number of motorcycle accidents in Toronto and surrounding areas in Ontario is really troubling. Many motorcycle collisions result in severe injuries for the motorcyclist and, sometimes, the consequences are fatal.
As I have written in a number of my previous blog posts, a great number of motorcycle collisions are entirely avoidable if drivers would simply pay more attention to the presence of motorcycles sharing our road. We are now well into summer, and it should come as no surprise that motorcycles are all around us on the roads in Ontario. Please remember to check blind spots before changing lanes, and look for the presence of motorycles before making turns or pulling out of parking lots. These are the common scenarios which result in many motorycle collisions, which may have devastating consequences.
Motorcyclists should also ride carefully, and use extra caution when riding near intersections, and leave plenty of space around other vehicles. The use of good riding gear can also reduce the severity of injuries and help protect a motorcyclist in the event of a crash.

Pedestrian Seriously Injured: Struck By SUV Truck On Steeles Avenue and Birchmount Road In Toronto
Unfortunately, something went very wrong this week, as a woman in her early 30's was reportedly struck by an SUV that mounted the curb. The woman was reportedly walking on the sidewalk along Birchmount Road, when she was struck.
According to reports, this Toronto pedestrian accident occurred on May 7, 2012. The woman was reportedly seriously injured, and police were investigating the situation and attempting to identify a specific cause for the crash.
We would like to offer our thoughts and our support for the woman who was so badly injured in this Toronto pedestrian accident. We hope that she is able to recover from the harm she has suffered quickly and fully.
In addition, this crash will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Toronto Pedestrian Accidents. Sadly, Toronto pedestrian accidents are a frequent occurrence. Most often, these accidents are the result of distracted drivers. Clearly, more information would be necessary in order to assign fault for this Toronto pedestrian accident. However, if the driver is found to be at fault, it could lead to the filing of a Ontario personal injury lawsuit for the injured
woman and her family. If such a lawsuit is filed, and if it is successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensates the woman and her family for their medical expenses, their lost income and their pain and suffering.
The Toronto Police are seeking information from anyone that may have witnessed this Toronto Pedestrian Accident. Read the Toronto Police News Release here.
