Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Personal Injury Lawyers - Representing People Nationwide
Although recreational bicycling has gained a surge of popularity over the past three decades, congested roadways, parking restrictions and the high cost of commuting have also made bicycling an inexpensive and convenient mode of transportation. Many young bicycle riders, however, are unaware how to safely and legally share the roads with automobiles, and automobile drivers often do not respect bicyclists’ right to share the road. This has resulted in an increase in serious, often fatal injuries to bicyclists.
We’ll help you find an experienced bicycle accident lawyer.
Nearly a million children are injured in bicycle accidents each year in the U.S. and every six hours a bicyclist is fatally injured. Only a third of bicycle related accidents are due to collisions with automobiles. But this type of accident accounts for the majority of catastrophic injuries, of which 75% are head injuries.
We strongly recommend that children be required to wear a protective helmet at all times when riding a bicycle. It is also advisable for children to attend bike safety education programs, which are frequently sponsored locally and from which you can sometimes purchase a helmet at discounted prices.
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury or death resulting from a bicycle accident, you should choose an attorney with experience and a successful track record securing the maximum amount of compensation for their clients in bicycle accident lawsuits.
