Bicycling is not only a healthy enjoyable activity; it is also a cost-effective means of transportation. As a bicycle rider, you have a right to be on the road as long as you follow the applicable traffic laws. As most bicyclists are aware, motorists are not always respectful of bicycle riders and can often create dangerous situations for cyclists. Sadly, bicycle accidents occur more frequently than many are aware of. While drivers are protected by seat belts, air bags and well-constructed vehicles, a bicyclist is at the mercy of the powerful forces a 2,000 pound car can create. As a result, a bicycle accident can put you at risk for severe harm, including soft-tissue injuries, traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries or worse. To protect your rights and interests in the aftermath of this type of accident, it is imperative that you contact a personal injury attorney as soon as you possibly can.
Injuries resulting from bicycle accidents can lead to expensive medical bills and often require long-term care that most people can't afford. When your injuries prevent you from working, you could be at risk of financial ruin.
