The Aftermath of a Bicycle Accident, Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer
Personal Injury Attorney Assisting Bicycle Accident Victims
Biking is a growing pastime, especially throughout the United States. The
growing number of bicycles on the road, not just as sport but also as
a means of transportation, has exponentially increased the need for caution
while on the roads, both on the part of motorists and bicyclists alike.
Despite extreme diligence and caution on the part of bicyclists, they can’t
always predict, nor are they able to control the actions of the drivers
that they share the roadways with. Whenever a vehicle or bicycle proves
to be defective or when a driver is negligent, accidents are likely to
occur and can lead to substantial injuries and can even lead to death.

most optimal settlement to help you with future medical costs and help

vulnerable when an accident occurs. The injuries can range from the seemingly
minor to the more severe, including:
- Loss of Limb(s)
- Multiple Fractures
- Brain and Head Injuries
- Spinal Cord Damage
- Internal Injuries
bicycle accident occurs, you’ll likely not know what your legal options and rights

a claim. It’s critical that you understand your situation as clearly

injury lawyer from

Firm comes in to work aggressively on your behalf in order to help achieve
the compensation that you deserve from the negligent party/parties that
bear the responsibility for your injuries.
Bicycle Accidents – Facts, Causes and Statistics
Over the past decade, the Unites States Department of Transportation states
that there have been more than 8,000 fatalities and 700,000 injuries related
to bicycles and traffic accidents. There are over 500,000 people that
are treated in emergency rooms throughout the nation due to bicycle accidents.
Urban areas account for the vast majority of all bicycle accident fatalities.
A whole host of conditions can lead to a bicycle accident, including:
- Negligent Drivers
- Inattentive Drivers
- Drivers Failing To Recognize or Grant Space to Bicyclists with Whom They
Share the Roadway
- Drivers That May Be Distracted By Their Cell Phones or Other Devices
- Excessive Road Traffic
- Drunk Drivers
- Sun Glare That May Hamper a Driver’s Vision
- Buildings Or Other Objects That May Obstruct a Driver’s View
- Speeding Drivers or Those Who Otherwise Violate Traffic Laws
In addition to driver conditions defective auto parts can lead to accidents
as well, including defective accelerators or failed breaks along with
defective bicycles or their parts as well. In addition to that there can
be other contributory factors like poor road maintenance or conditions,
defective traffic control devices or signage, in which case a government
agency may bear responsibility for your injuries. In these instances there
may be a statute of limitations (limited time constraints) to file a lawsuit
and get compensation for your claims. This is why you need to contact
