Bicycles have been a part of most people’s lives since childhood. The first thing children are taught when learning to ride a bicycle is to wear a helmet and be cautious of their surroundings. Unfortunately, those lessens don’t always prevent injury. You cannot prevent someone from drinking and driving or driving in bike lanes.
Whether riding leisurely or as a main form of transportation, cyclists are becoming more and more susceptible to injuries due to the negligence of others. For cyclists who have been involved in a car accident, injuries can range from broken bones, post-traumatic stress, to traumatic brain injury or death.
Our firm’s goal is to provide assistance to those who have been unjustly injured. We have experienced attorneys for cycling accidents involving:
- Drunk drivers
- Hit-and-run drivers
- Parking or driving in bike line
- Negligent driving
- Distracted drivers
- Negligent maintenance of roads
The joy of riding a bicycle should not be tainted by the fear of others or your surroundings. A safe place to ride is paramount in our increasingly high-speed culture. Arthur Conan Doyle summed up the importance of being able to ride a bicycle, “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”
