Bicycle Accident Injuries

In 2011, 677 bicyclists were killed and an additional 48,000 were injured according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. All bicyclists should wear properly fitted bicycle helmets every time they ride. Bicyclists are considered vehicle operators and are required to obey the same traffic rules as motor vehicle operations; including obeying traffic signs, direction, and lane markings. Likewise, drivers of motor vehicles are required to share the road with cyclist.

Bicycle Safety

Wearing a helmet and being cautious of surroundings can greatly reduce the change of serious injury or death from a cycling accident; but even when a cyclist is using the proper caution and wearing the correct safety equipment, a collision with a motor vehicle, especially a truck or SUV, can result in serious injury or death.

If you have been injured or if your loved one has been killed in a bicycle accident resulting from the carelessness or negligence of another person, you want an experienced bike accident lawyer to hold the responsible party accountable and make that person provide some measure of compensation for the loss of affection, companionship and support your loved one gave you.
