First and foremost, we offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the man that was tragically killed in this Mississauga bicycle accident.
At this time, the full details of the bicycle accident are not available. The Peel Regional Police are investigating the crash, and had the intersection closed for their investigation. Witnesses are encouraged to step forward.
In addition to charges that may be laid by police, if any, the family of the man who was tragically killed may also be entitled to bring an insurance claim for damages.
In Ontario, where a pedestrian or cyclist is struck by a motor vehicle, there is a presumption that the vehicle driver was negligent.
(a) expenses reasonably incurred for the benefit of the person killed;
(b) funeral expenses reasonably incurred;
(c) an amount to compensate for the loss of guidance, care and companionship that the claimant might reasonably have expected to receive from the person if the death had not occurred.
