Hanson Duby Lawyers (http://www.HansonDuby.com), a personal injury law firm serving the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), comments on a recent multi-vehicle collision in Scarborough that left a cyclist dead and four others injured. Hanson Duby also advises that cyclists need to be aware of their rights and that motorists need to be vigilant and watch out for cyclists.
Toronto personal injury lawyers at Hanson Duby are concerned about distracted drivers and the dangers they pose to cyclists. A recent collision in Scarborough left one cyclist dead and four others injured after the driver of an SUV failed to stop at a red light.

“The rules of the road apply to everyone,” says Spyros Bekiaris, a lawyer at Hanson Duby Lawyers. “As a Toronto personal injury lawyer, I know that cyclists have little to no protection on the roads. As a result, cyclists can be seriously injured or killed when motorists ignore lights, speed, or disobey other traffic laws.”
Bekiaris joined Hanson Duby Lawyers as an Associate in September 2010. He graduated from York University with an Honours BA, and from the Queen’s University Faculty of Law with a JD in 2009. He formerly worked at a boutique insurance defence firm in Toronto, representing insurance companies.
Bekiaris has appeared before the Financial Services Commission of Ontario, the Small Claims Court, the Superior Court of Justice, and the Divisional Court. Bekiaris represents clients in a variety of disputes, including motor vehicle accidents, accident benefits, slips and falls, property damage claims, and victims of assault. Bekiaris is a member of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association and the Hellenic Canadian Lawyers’ Association.
“Far too many people are being injured and killed while riding on a bicycle due to the negligence of a distracted driver,” Bekiaris adds, “and for that reason the personal injury lawyers at Hanson Duby provide effective legal services to anyone injured in a bicycle accident and the family members of those who’ve died in a cycling accident.”
At Hanson Duby Lawyers, the experienced team of personal injury lawyers will help you get the compensation you deserve for pain and suffering, lost wages, and other incurred expenses.
