Helping Bicycle Accident Victims Recover Compensation
Bicycling is an excellent mode of transportation that provides exercise and promotes a healthy lifestyle. As the price of gas skyrockets, the percentage of people who have embraced biking has increased as well. People often choose to leave their car at home and bike to their destination instead of driving as a result. However, while there are numerous advantages to bike riding, the biggest downside has always been the risk of being involved in an injury accident with a motor vehicle.
We Understand Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle accidents can result in serious consequences and catastrophic injuries including lacerations, broken bones, and other injuries caused by blunt force impact. Because of the low protection on bicycles, riders often sustain more serious injuries than they would if they got into the same accident in an automobile.
Bicycle riders traveling in densely populated urban areas and on suburban streets are the most likely to get injured. The cause of a bicycle accident can be dependent on various factors, including driver negligence, dangerous roadways, defective equipment, and negligence on behalf of a bike mechanic or repair shop.
Since 1932, more than 53,000 people have been killed in a bicycle accident. According to the National Transportation Safety Board, the number of bicycle related accidents continues to rise, with a 21 percent increase since 2008.
