Laws Governing Cyclists

Contact Joseph A. Nagy if you have been injured in a motor vehicle vs. bicycle accident.The Use of Highway and Rules of the Road Regulation has specific rules which apply to the operation of a bicycle or “cycle”. A person who is operating a cycle on a highway has all the rights and is subject to all the duties of a person driving a motor vehicle. Cyclists must operate the cycle as near as practicable to the right curb or edge of the roadway unless that person is in the process of making a left turn with the cycle or crossing from one curb or edge of the roadway to the opposite curb or edge of the roadway. Cyclists must travel single file except when overtaking and passing another cycle.

Cyclists and motor vehicles are constantly in conflict on our highways. The creation of designated bicycle lanes in urban areas helps to relieve some of the tension created between cyclists and motor vehicles.

Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton injury lawyer, provides advice to bicyclists injured in motor vehicle collisions.

Joseph A. Nagy
Injury Lawyer

Dedicated, Efficient, Hard Working, Honest, Compassionate – these are just some of the words I would use to decribe Joe Nagy. I was involved in two MVAs and my case just wasn’t proceeding. However, by luck it was passed on to Mr. Nagy and I could not have had better representation. He worked extremely hard and got results. He did for me what my two previous lawyers couldn’t seem to do. Joe and his amazing assistant Nicole were always available if I had questions and kept me well informed. I felt like my case was a priority. I was recently trying to write a thank you note to Joe and realized I could not find the words to adequately express my gratitude – not only for the settlement I received but for his kindness and compassion during the most difficult years of my life. Having to endure multiple medical visits and living with pain every day took a toll on me. Joe is incredibly knowledgeable and having him on my side allowed me to focus on my health. My confidence in his ability never waivered. He also has a sense of integrity that I truly appreciate. My only regret is that I did not have Joe as my lawyer from the beginning. Thank you Joe and Nicole. You both saw me as a person and I cannot tell you what that meant to me. I will forever be grateful.
