There’s no greater freedom than being on the open road on your motorcycle. However, since they’re smaller vehicles than cars, accidents involving motorcycles tend to be much worse.

WAt Rotondo Law, we realize that there is a significant difference between motorcycle accidents and car accidents. Since you are not in a vehicle, the injuries can be greater, and even result in death. We’ve been representing victims of motorcycle accidents since 1999.  

At Rotondo Law, we will thoroughly investigate the accident, interview witnesses, and make sure that every detail of your motorcycle accident is covered. We will represent you in your case against the at-fault driver, and our policy is that we do not take payment until the case is closed. 

We will be with you every step of the way after your motorcycle accident, determining the compensation you are entitled to, as well as providing assistance with finding the proper medical care and rehabilitation.

If you are filing a claim following a motorcycle accident, you should do so immediately, since there is a time limit on when you can inform the responsible parties.

The limit varies according to the severity of the accident, but at Rotondo Law, we recommend doing so immediately following your accident.

Can I Sue if a Fire Hydrant Is Out of Service?

According to Rotondo Law, the leading personal injury lawyer in Toronto, if the fire hydrant outside of your home or business is damaged and a fire occurs, you may potentially have a case against the municipality. Depending on the circumstances of the fire and the damage to your home or business, your insurance company can go after the municipality for damages. There has to be a causal relationship between the damage caused to your home and the inoperable fire hydrant.


Put simply, if the damage would have been less severe had the fire hydrant been working, you have a case. Even then, you can only sue for the differential. Similarly, if the landlord of your apartment building or the location of your business has not kept up safety standards, you can also file a case against them, regardless of whether or not the nearest fire hydrant was working. If the fire hydrant closest to your home is out of order for an extended period of time, do not hesitate to call continually until it is repaired. The chances of a fire occurring are slim, but as a home or business owner, you want to know that the fire department will have access to a working fire hydrant should the unthinkable happen.

If your home was extensively damaged in a fire due to an out-of-order fire hydrant, call on Rotondo Law. We will closely look at your case and determine if further damage to your home could have been prevented had the fire hydrant been in proper working order. And best of all, we offer a free, no-obligation initial consultation. Should you decide to hire us, we will see your case through to completion—and remember, we don’t get paid until you do!

A working fire hydrant in close proximity to your home or business is a basic safety feature that everyone should have. If your house or business has suffered extensive damage that could have been prevented if the closest fire hydrant had not been out of service, call Rotondo Law, the top personal injury lawyer in the Greater Toronto Area.
