SAFETY: Province urged to act following death of Brantford skateboarder

A Toronto lawyer is calling for mandatory helmets for skateboarders following the weekend death of a Brantford teen.

“We've created laws for use of helmets on bicycles, motorcycles and snowmobiles,” Isaac Zisckind, of Diamond and Diamond Personal Injury Lawyers, said Tuesday.

“This sport involves the use of high speed and risky manoeuvres, which can cause devastating injury.”

Free consults and contingency fee arrangements apply to all personal injury cases only and to select wrongful dismissal cases, but do not apply to other types of commercial and civil litigation.
